Wow the math is pretty darn telling.
133,000,000 out of 1083.021,825 = 0.1228....
196,000,000 out of 1,083,021,825 = 0.1801...
Either way a pretty small percentage... and about what I figured... and probably analogous the the percentage world wide of any group that believes that or something similar is justified.
Suicide bombers are not much different that soldiers putting themselves in harms way except the odds of survival are a tad better. Either way it amounts to the willingness to "die for (fill in the blank)" It is delusional to think it is different than "we ask our young people" to bear arms, risk life and limb in the name of whatever.
Cajoling a youngster to strapping a bomb around themselves and visiting a cafe... or blathering on about heroics to a teenager in order to get them to join the Marines... sosdd.
Boaz bought the sales pitch and he is all about going up against others who have done the same. The problem he deals with is he put himself in the midsts of those more committed to the cause than he is because they are bent on defending their homeland.. and their particular brand of freedom... right or wrong... he is bent on invading it and neutralizing them .... right or wrong.
What's more Boaz thinks it is all about spreading whatever... the thing is those hiring him to go spread whatever only do it where there is a resource they want to cash in on. It isn't at all altruistic. It isn;t to protect our freedoms. It is some governmental agency's way of playing pin the medal on the psychopath.
The US military is the one largest consumer of oil in the world and responsible for over 90 % of the government's consumption... you don't seriously expect them to go after the radical Sunni Janfaweed.
