Yemeni Al Qaeda Publishes Magazine List Of Ways To Kill Americans
October 13, 2010
Yemen (ChattahBox World News) – A branch of al Qaeda located in the Arabic Peninsula has published a new edition of their terror-based magazine. But unlike the Cosmo standard of ridiculous sex tips and advice how to lose 5 pounds in 14 minutes, they are trying to maximize the carnage rate of attacks.
The latest edition of the publication, which is circulated through extremist groups located in Yemen, has articles written by several American-born jihadists. These include Anwar al-Awlaki, who remains on the kill-or-capture list of the U.S. military, and Adam Gadahn.
One of the articles features a list of ways to best kill Americans, such as choosing a restaurant in the afternoon in Washington D.C., in order to possibly catch some government officials. It also tells how to use velocity to turn a truck into a “human lawn mower.” Past issues have featured such ridiculous pieces as “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.”
The magazine shows the attempt by the terrorist organization to enter into mainstream forms of communication, something that has been formerly utilized through the use of the Internet. But with websites and blogs easily infiltrated by security forces from international defense and spy agencies, printed word seems to be becoming a once again popular option.
It also shows an increased focus on small operations that target citizens, rather than the often bungled large-scale attacks that were as much for show as for killing. For example, the Time Square bombing attempt or the Christmas Day incident, which saw a wannabe insurgent lighting his crotch on fire when the explosives in his underwear failed to properly detonate.
