Dumb & dumber

How much brains does it take to be a terrorist? Apparently not too much...

After the explosion of the oiltanker Limburg (under french flag, but owned by CMB) in Yemen a few days ago, a statement on thursday from a militant Muslim group, the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army, claimed it carried out the explosion to avenge the execution of one of its leaders for the 1998 kidnapping of 16 Western tourists.

Later on I heard on the news that they were actually targetting an american battleship that was in the same region as the oiltanker. According to my sources the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army commented that hitting the oiltanker instead of the battleship was no real problem as it did carry non-believers as well.

So... you make up a plan, you get a boat, load it up with explosives, get it close to a ship and explode it? Sounds pretty easy, but apparently these people were too fucking stupid to verify their target. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even a blind man would be able to spot the difference between an oiltanker and a battleship.

I'm not saying that attacking a battleship is ok, and attacking an oiltanker is not. I just was under the impression that even extremist muslim terrorists were smarter than that.
