Proof that AlQaeda really is from the middle ages

They are getting killed by the Bubonic Plague. Yes, the Bubonic fuckin Plague. Poetic, no?


  1. If only those microbes were selctive…! Rub out every Al Qaeda militant and leave everyone else alone to live happily ever after!

    Then again, you’re quoting The Sun… Not a good sign! :D

  2. Roman Kalik says:

    Well, here’s the article about this from The Washington Times.

  3. I wouldn’t put too much credence in this, one way or the other.

    On the other hand, if Al Queda really did fuck up, we should start to see mass deaths in 4,…3,…2,…..

  4. Ichneumon says:

    There are genetic differences between ethnic groups, mostly in non-coding DNA sequences though. It is theoretically possible to eventually construct micro-organisms (virii at least, don’t know about bacteria and parasites) which turn active only inside the individuals of certain ethnicities. Imagine smallpox powered by genetic engineering that will hit only white people. Airborne Ebola killing only Arabs. And so on. It will be a possibility in few decades, perhaps sooner.

    Of course, there’s a lot of overlap between people, so such bioweapon might kill some of every ethnic group, and the genetic differences don’t correspond exactly with cultural differences. For instance, Jews and Palestianians are genetically very similar…

  5. Finally!
    all those years of creating different viruses to kill our enemies, creating bird flus and injecting Lybian kids with aids. The experiments are finally paying off!
