This is coolbert:
They must have done autopsies on the bodies of the dead Mumbai jihadists. Autopsies are commonly done on dead jihadis? This is now SOP [standard operating procedure]?
Some of this has been touched upon in previous blog entries.
It has been revealed that the villains were full of all sorts of substances. To include:
Drugs the purpose of which would be to bring into abeyance normal bodily functions and reactions. Fear, hunger, weakness, all suppressed for the duration of the mission?
1. Cocaine used to stay awake during the entire “incident”. Fifty [50+] straight hours of frenzied activity, enormous stress, physical exertion of mind-boggling proportions.
2. Steroids used during the months of training leading up to the “incident”. Physical training to build muscle mass and strength. Bodybuilding stuff, getting “buffed” is the expression!
[the 9/11 hijackers also frequented bodybuilding clubs and were “buffed”. Trainers familiar with some of the 9/11 conspirators remarked as to their [hijackers] outstanding physical conditioning, well beyond the norm!]
3. LSD used to “enhance” perception or distort reality in some manner either before or during the “incident”? EVEN CONVINCE THE RECRUITS IN ADVANCE THEY MAY HAVE ALREADY VISITED ISLAMIC PARADISE AND INDULGED IN THE HOURIS!!?? LSD CAN CHANGE SENSORY PERCEPTION IS SOME MANNER THAT IS TO THE ADVANTAGE OF THE TERRORIST!!??
"Houri - - one of the beautiful virgins provided in paradise for all faithful Muslims"
Hashshashin [assassins], trained by the “Old Man of the Mountain”, prior to embarking on an assassination mission, would be placed in a hashish induced stupor, given wine, women, and song. An acolyte would be told that he had visited - - in advance - - Muslim paradise.
Alcohol, of course, within Islamic culture, is frowned upon and eschewed by the devout. Opiates are traditionally the drug of choice within the Muslim world, for those that choose to imbibe! Getting a “high” from substances [BZ is the drug of choice in Iraq?] other than “drink” is within limits.
Were these guys sedated in some manner too? Devoted readers to the blog will recall the prior entry about the bank robbers that engaged in a running gun battle for hours [?] with the Los Angeles cops. Robbers that had taken sedatives in advance so they could remain calm, cool, collected, not fazed by any of the events that transpired!
I would imagine, also, that the Mumbai terrorists got a good dose of mental conditioning too. Exhortations from the Koran, chanting verses from the HOLY BOOK pertinent to jihad, propaganda lectures and sermons. Watching films showing Muslims somewhere in the world being mistreated. Etc.
