    Instead of pulling off raids or blowing up compounds, the British MI6, an elite counterterror group, switched tactics in what is basically a nose tweak to the terrorist online magazine. The group replaced bomb making instructions for directions to make some delicious cupcakes. No word yet on how the cupcakes turned out :D

    Man I swear you and Steve make comments that are not true, quite frequently and the people on the forum will believe it as the truth. Please check your facts before making comments based on ignorance. :rolleyes:

    Although I see your point, I don't really see what the fuss is about. It's not like his comment was inflammatory or misleading in a harmful way.

    Haha, in Iraq we would look for wires and remote devices of IEDs. We have reached a new phase of the war, the cupcake phase.

    The front page of an American hardware review page has a headline commending the British MI6 for awsome tactics against terrorists and you get your pantys in a bunch. Grow up.

    What exactly compelled you to focus on the fact that the review site is "American"? I don't see the relevance in your oddly indignant post, nor the point of the post itself. Do you support the posting of misinformation, regardless of how severe it is?

    What a WASTE!

    If MI6 wanted to make itself useful how come it didn't plant disinformation that might be useful. For a bomb making manual, change some of the text to guarantee the terrorist blows himself up which is very easy to do when making a bomb.

    It would also take al-qaeda to notice the switch...

    Try to think ahead a few steps. Teenagers would find this information and then try to follow it, blowing themselves up in the process. Is that what you want? Kids wouldn't have any malicious intent, they would just try to have some fun, but the end result wouldn't be so fun for them.

    1. How many Teenagers you know access a real life al-Qaeda website? Most cannot read arabic.
    2. How many western teenagers build bombs for kicks? How many innocents you think would really be harmed by this? More innocent teens are killed in car crashes.
    3. Is that what I want? Honestly I can live with it. Better a dead teenager then a bunch of dead innocents.

    Well aren't you just a sad, twisted sack of shit? You heard it here folks, brown teenagers aren't to be considered innocent and their deaths are acceptable collateral.

    Oh, and mmarsh, you might want to acknowledge to yourself that you are, in fact, a sociopath and a racist and should consider any professional help you might need in dealing with your problem.Though, in all likelihood, you wouldn't consider it a problem, given how easily you hand wave away the unnecessary deaths of teenagers.

    If you need a quick context of your idiocy, imagine if the US government had replaced the instructions in the Anarchist Cookbook with what you are suggesting. Dead teenagers would have been found in neighborhoods all over America. Oh, I forgot, once you mention "terrist", suddenly everything becomes an acceptable course of action.

    I'd hardly consider anyone building a BOMB off of a TERRORIST website to be innocent. Don't think its his part time hobby to build bombs then dismantle them...

    WTF dude? He didn't say anything racist at all and was talking about western teenagers. I think you are the one in need of some professional help. You are extremely defensive, have anger issues, and have major problems with reading comprehension.

    Hmmm how to answer to this... lets say I had an extensive knowledge of physics and chemistry as a teenager... so I really wouldn't have needed the website

    No humans or animals were hurt during my teenage exploits, of course that was not my intention. Of course nowadays the kind of stuff I used to do would likely get you thrown in prison for being a terrorist. :eek:

    Yea, teenagers would never do anything dumb and/or out of curiosity! Especially in places where bombs go off every day and horrible death surrounds them.

    Yes, that was my part of my point: he doesn't care about brown teenagers. He is racist. You should stop projecting, btw. And, you should also realize that xenophobic sociopaths are not entitled to polite discussion when they trumpet their racist bullshit.
