I am at a loss for words....

I ran across this story today. I am at a loss for words. Cars are being stolen from the US and used for suicide car bombings in Iraq!?!?!? Are you freakin serious? How in the world could this happen?

The inquiry began after coalition troops raided a Falluja bomb factory last November and found a Texas-registered four-wheel-drive being prepared for a bombing mission. Investigators said there were several other cases where vehicles evidently stolen in the US wound up in Syria or other Middle Eastern countries and ultimately in the hands of Iraqi insurgent groups, including al-Qaeda in Iraq.



So, as an argument, we as Americans should drive fuel efficient, hybrid, SMALL cars in order to avoid aiding the terrorists. Wow. You won't see that extrapolated for any headline scrolling news.

Am I the only one catching the underlying story here? THe last part of the article reads...

'Terrorism specialists said they believed Iraqi insurgents preferred American stolen cars because they tended to be larger, blended in more easily with US convoys, and were harder to identify as stolen.'

Yeah right! Fifty bucks says they're doing it as a little extra "fuck you" thrown in there. Maybe I'm too much of a consparicy junkee, and maybe I've been watching too much Alias...but is that too much of a coincidence that it was a Texas registered vehicle that they were going to use? I'm probably way off here, but it makes you wonder. If you hated someone so bad and made it your life's mission to piss them off, wouldn't humiliation thrown into the cake batter make it extra sweet?
