As you can imagine, I’m shedding rivers of tears over this news.

Tears of laughter:

A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials. Stores of other explosive devices and heavy weapons were also kept there, the officials said.

I bet that taught them a lesson they’ll never forget.

I wonder if a jihadi qualifies for his 72 virgin goats if he dies in the dumbest way possible?

    As a requirement of Suicide Bomber School, each Graduate MUST demonstrate their new found skill 100%. Give it all, or don’t do it. :d

    For ’tis the sport to have the engineer
    Hoist with his own petard: and it shall go hard
    But I will delve one yard below their mines,
    And blow them at the moon.–Shakespeare, from “Hamlet”

    72 Virgin goats and he gets to be wrapped in bacon at burial.

    Never enroll in a class with a course title like Suicide Bombing 101 or that uses a textbook entitled “Jihad for Dummies”.

    Bet the commander doesn’t have the guts to try THAT again…
