That deep religious nature of Islam is showing itself once again. Afghanistan Taliban are planting HIV infected needles with their IED's. Think about it, where are they getting the HIV virus to dirty-up the needles? You can't place an order for a quantity of HIV virus. There are also warnings about hepatitis, and infected razor blades. See a video below.
This report is coming from The Sun UK and speaks of British soldiers finding these bombs, but it surely also affects U.S. soldiers. God bless these men and women doing this terrifying work:
Hypodermic syringes are hidden below the surface pointing upwards to prick bomb squad experts as they hunt for devices.
The heroin needles are feared to be contaminated with hepatitis and HIV. And if the bomb goes off, the needles become deadly flying shrapnel.Apparently we have a cadre of sick and HIV infected Taliban, or are towns people showing up to donate their dirty heroin needles?
There is this report also coming via the UK's Independent, dateline May 25th, 2010, saying Taliban bombs are now being detonated, rather than dismantled.
The move represents a shift in policy to try to alleviate the pressure on operatives...four of whom have been Killed in just over a year in Helmand.Infected needles are not mentioned in the Independent report.
