A Plague On Al Qaeda!

The downside is that the next batch of terrorists may not make the same mistakes:
Al-Qaeda cell killed by Black Death 'was developing biological weapons'

The group of 40 terrorists were reported to have been killed by the plague at a training camp in Algeria earlier this month.

It was initially believed that they could have caught the disease through fleas on rats attracted by poor living conditions in their forest hideout.

But there are now claims the cell was developing the disease as a weapon to use against western cities.

Experts said that the group was developing chemical and biological weapons.
Unfortunately, we are looking at a problem that is only going to get more sophisticated:
It was reported last year that up to 100 potential terrorists had attempted to become postgraduate students in Britain in an attempt to use laboratories.

Ian Kearns, from the Institute for Public Policy Research, told the newspaper: "The biological weapons threat is not going away. We're not ready for it."
Now would be a good time to start.

That they were all killed by the nasty superweapons they produced for the rest of us shows that Islamic terrorists, like the Nazis, are becoming more innovative in determining how to mass murder large numbers of innocent people. The bubonic plague weapon they had tried to make is scant comfort.
