Taliban Using HIV Needles As Weapons

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers take part in an improvised explosive device (IED) detection training course at Camp Hero in Kandahar province, southern Afghanistan June 3, 2010.

HIV needles buried with bombs as Taliban uses ‘despicable’ tactics to fight British troops

By Mail Foreign Service
9th June 2010

British troops risk being infected with HIV as Taliban fighters are hiding contaminated needles with their bombs.

Heroin syringes as well as razor blades are being buried in the ground by insurgents in Afghanistan so that they prick bomb squad experts.

It is believed that the needles, used in Helmand province, are contaminated with hepatitis and HIV as the Taliban use increasingly ‘despicable’ tactics.

Protective Kevlar gloves have been issued to all Royal Engineer and Royal Logistic Corps bomb search teams.

Conservative MP Patrick Mercer, a former Army officer, exposed the tactic. ‘Are there no depths to which these people will stoop?’ he told the Sun.

‘This is the definition of a dirty war.’

Lieutenant Colonel David Southall, Commanding Officer of the Counter-IED Task Force said: ‘Improvised explosive devices remain a tactic of desperation and last resort.

‘The Taliban know they can’t take us on and win in a conventional toe-to-toe fight – whilst they resort to some pretty despicable IED emplacement tactics, my IED operators, now drawn from all across the three services, are well equipped and up for the fight.’

Of course they also are funding by their heroin corps.

Such pious Mohammedans.

    It’s definitely time to start playing Cowboys and Muslims.

    Good for the Brits the Taliban are not well informed about the transmission of HIV. HIV is a very weak virus once outside the body and doesn’t live past a few hours without being in a host. Once the blood has dried all the virus is pretty much dead. Now, hepatitis C however can live several weeks up to a month in dried blood. But in the hot arid conditions of Afghanistan, buried in the dirt, I give it a week. Most likely the idiots will end up infecting themselves while trying to set up the IEDs.

    I don’t believe it, First off there are no Gay people nor sexual diseases over there!.

    Rumor is the Taliban was going to hang needles off goats but feared they would lose to many of there own.

    With that being said, how is having our soldiers wandering around in the desert getting blown up, shot at, jabbed with HIV needles ANY DIFFERENT than wandering around in the jungles of Vietnam, getting blown up, shot at, and jabbed with punji sticks filled with manure to cause illness?

    We need to get out of that god forsaken country.

    “Are there no depths to which these people will stoop?”

    The proper question is “when are we going to respond in kind and show these scumbags what the brutality of war REALLY looks like?” Death, for these savages, is the only effective method of dealing with them.

  6. confucius says:

    So, the Taliban have biological weapons . . . .

    I just have to wonder, if this (Islam) is the most ‘holy’ way to live and the ‘religion of peace’ – exactly how do HIV infections, heroin and putting ‘infected’ needles and razor blades into IEDs fit into either one of those categories at all?

    And Mithrander – NO and Not just NO but HELL NO – look at what happened here in America & in Vietnam when America – the greatest country in the World with the greatest and most well equipped fighting force in the World was forced by a bunch of lying and duplicitous liberals to turn tail and run – NEVER AGAIN.

    The beginnings of OEF is entirely different than Vietnam, the enemy is entirely different and America should be kicking butt and taking names rather than dealing with deadly (and stupidly PC) ROEs – it is in America’s future best interest and the Worlds.

    If for once some country in the World took on and pushed back against the ‘religion of peace’ – The World could get back to the business of working for a living and playing hard on days off – Not watching it’s collective backs for the next terrorist event and not fighting in courts and government against an enemy attempting to inflict it’s 3rd century religious hypocrisy violently upon anyone not them.

    It happened before – and will happen again – Unless we can stop it before it explodes into WWIII.

    Pick your equivalencies correctly – or don’t apply them. And not everything in American history relates back to Vietnam/Watergate – take out a real American history book – America’s history is rich with events that would put this GWOT in context – if anyone would even bother to look further back than the rise of the duplicitous liberal msm in the 60s/70s.
