    A wannabee terrorist bomber became a true suicide bomber last New Year's Eve.


    A "Black Widow" suicide bomber planned a terrorist attack in central Moscow on New Year's Eve but was killed when an unexpected text message set off her bomb too early, according to Russian security sources.


    When I first heard this story, it was just described as a "Happy New Year" message. Now, it appears that this was a spam message from her cell phone carrier, much like the very sincere birthday wishes you get from your insurance agent.


    The unnamed woman, who is thought to be part of the same group that struck Moscow's Domodedovo airport on Monday, intended to detonate a suicide belt on a busy square near Red Square on New Year's Eve in an attack that could have killed hundreds.

    Security sources believe a spam message from her mobile phone operator wishing her a happy new year received just hours before the planned attack triggered her suicide belt, killing her but nobody else.


    Which begs the question, when a female suicide bomber blows herself up, does she get 72 virgin (inexperienced) guys? Ladies, is that the dream for you?

    I know cellphones can be used to set off explosives remotely, but I can't understand why a suicide bomber would need a remote control for something right on their body.
    Unless she really didn't intend to go up with her bomb.
    Another good arguement for the KISS princible ?

    From my understanding a the remote control would be used by the 'minder' who watches from a safe distance and detonates the device at an optimal time. This makes sure wannabe suicide bombers don't chicken out at the last minute. :bom:

    I hate terrorists.

    florence is right. they have a handler who watches from a safe distance and had the means to detonate the explosive incase the bomber chickens out or becomes incapacitated. actually what happened here was it was new years day and someone send a "Happy New Years!" text....that probably saved a lot of people.

    It shows they're running out of high quality, dedicated recruits.
