[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] I apol for this seemingly peripheral - its a great we do it for good and they for bad, lesson, It comes from the current US military organ, Stars and Stripes. apols no url, had probs including ... someone smarter ... Al-Qaeda training videos So al-Qaeda¹s been training personnel to build improvised conventional weapons and has been doing research on chemical weapons, and somehow this is supposed to be news. I¹m not sure if this is news as video confirmation of what every American has already concluded to be fact, or news for quantifying American vulnerabilities in the small towns back home. Either way, there seems to be nothing new in this, other than the clips CNN shows hourly. I don¹t want to rain on CNN¹s parade, but we in America and England already have comparable training tapes. Perhaps worse still, they are broadcast for all to see. My son, nearly 4 years old, can explain in great detail the steps used to make a cannon (and how to make it self-propelled), options for building torpedoes, and how to destroy a building. How? He loves ³Junkyard Wars² and ³Scrapheap Challenge.² But the difference is that my son is not evil at heart, and instead of wanting to learn how to kill all infidels, he would like the Discovery Channel to do an episode on building rally cars so that he can compete in the Rallye Deutschland this weekend.
