Weekend Menaces

I know it's been a while since I kept anybody up to date on menaces, so I've got a lot to cover. A lot of menaces are like insects, they specialize in certain areas. Today we'll take a look at a few of these narrow-spectrum menaces.

If you happen to be a Nigerian terrorist, it seems that Flying Dutchmen are ready to menace you right into a headlock. We salute you, sir.

Also, for any other suicide bombers who may be reading this, it seems that your own explosives can be a menace for you. I'm actually not sure how to file this bit of news, because I think that's the point of suicide bombing. I'll put it in the "Better them than somebody else" file.

If you happen to be a Florida citrus farmer, Al Gore and his global warming seem to be the enemy.

If your mother is a sub-human piece of slime, then she is your menace.

Folks, keep in mind what Jeff Cooper had to say about specialization. Don't focus on just one menace, stay prepared for all of 'em.

  1. On the suicide bombers: a friend who has done a couple of tours in Afganistan with a private contractor said illiteracy runs about 85% and the bombers are often told it is a special bomb that will blast out from them, kill infidels and leave them alive to collect, not 72 virgins, but something like $75,000. When Achmed doesn't show up again, folks assume he got his money and split for the good life. Life is cheap and death is the will of Alah. Women with small children will sit in the middle of the road, begging, while their kids play in traffic. If she or a kid gets hit, it was God's will. Most don't even look when crossing a road. The culture difference from what we know and expect is huge.
