"Black Death" Plague Kills 40+ Al-Qaeda Terrorists

In the immortal words of Monty Python, "bring out yer dead"

"Anti-terror bosses last night hailed their latest ally in the war on terror — the BLACK DEATH.

At least 40 al-Qaeda fanatics died horribly after being struck down with the disease that devastated Europe in the Middle Ages. The killer bug, also known as the plague, swept through insurgents training at a forest camp in Algeria, North Africa. It came to light when security forces found a body by a roadside.

The victim was a terrorist in AQLIM (al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb), the largest and most powerful al-Qaeda group outside the Middle East. It trains Muslim fighters to kill British and US troops.

Now al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague has been passed to other terror cells — or Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

One security source said: “This is the deadliest weapon yet in the war against terror. Most of the terrorists do not have the basic medical supplies needed to treat the disease. “It spreads quickly and kills within hours. This will be really worrying al-Qaeda.”

Black Death comes in various forms. Bubonic Plague is spread by bites from infected rat fleas. Symptoms include boils in the groin, neck and armpits. In Pneumonic Plague, airborn bacteria spread like flu. It can be in the body for more than a week — highly contagious but not revealing tell-tale symptoms."

As tantalizing as that may be, for people who relish in conspiracy theories... they give us way too much credit.

Why spend the immense effort to successfully introduce the plague into a known terrorist camp, when a lovely tomahawk can solve the problem, far more easily?

lol... again, I appreciate your strong confidence in our abilities... but really... biological warfare on a small camp?

Take a look at the hundreds of other camps we have successfully eradicated. If it wasn't a JDAM, or a tomahawk, or a small bomb... it was always the easiest, and most expedient, method at killing those f*ckers.

Biological warfare... perhaps if Hollywood was running the show... or if the conspiracy theorists had their way... but in reality, it's just not the case.

It's easily treatable with doxycycline or gentamicin. The problem is that the terrorists can't go for medical care because doing so will reveal them.

There is no risk to the public from plague.

Alessandro,

I happen to concur -- I think it's bio-warfare.

I just hope the spread of this thing doesn't end up spreading all over the place and taking out innocent (non al-qaeda, non-terrorist) people.

Exactly, if there´s a outbreak of a disease from a biological weapon, you can trace the sympatizers as well when they seek medical assistant.

A statement based on absolutely no evidence, except a penchant for conspiracy theories. The fact that in every event, you seek to position yourself on the fringe, completely destroys your credibility.

What evidence do you have to support your argument? What was the delivery vehicle? Alessandro said Algeria does not allow US military missiles, or aircraft, to fly through their airspace... so tell us how we did it. Tell us how the terrorists went unnoticed of this diabolical plan? And please, don't include the fact that many of these camps are absolutely filthy, with horrendous sanitary standards, and many of the people training there would live no better than an animal.... and frequently suffer from disease outbreaks. Why don't you actually give us a factual argument, instead of wild claims?

I am sorry, but simply because Andrea has a "gut feeling" is not enough to make a convincing case, or any case for that matter. Especially since Andrea in a well known connoisseur of conspiracy theories.

Now, I'm not going to say that it is biological warfare, and I can definitely understand and agree with your statement. Yet, on the other hand, there are so many levels of secrecy in military operations, most of which none of us will ever know about. So, having said that, one could assume that this was a quick and simple test to see if a particular form of biological warfare works and is effective.

Like I said, I'm not saying thats the deal here, but it could be possible.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll finish reading my Tom Clancy novels Big grin
