Today's Least Scary Terrorist Threat

Muslim terrorists and their ilk are well known for their flowery, hyperbolic threats of violence to the West generally, or other future victims. Perhaps the best known was Baghdad Bob of the early days of Gulf War II. (My favorite quote from "Comical Ali" was: "God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis." Still makes me laugh.)

Earlier today, the Philippine government ended a standoff at a Manila where members of a local Al Qaeda-affiliated terror group (Abu Sayyaf) staged an attempted prison break. After waiting a couple days, the police stormed the prison and killed 28, including the ringleaders of the failed escape try.

In response to the carnage, a member of the Abu Sayyaf group comically issued this lame warning:

"This operation showered with the blood of our brothers will become like vitamins to us."

Like my fiance said, someone should introduce them to Flintstones vitamins. Could save some trouble.
