Mark Steyn has the same thought
I did: Couldn't the Islamic nutjob doctors in the UK have done far more damage with a hypodermic needle than they did with a car bomb?
Maybe their mistake was trying to blow up the airport instead of wreaking subtler havoc on the infidels. Did you see this week's scare-of-the-week from the Chinese health system? "About 420 bottles of fake blood protein, albumin, were found at hospitals in Hubei province but none had been used to treat patients, said Liu Jinai, an official with the inspection division of the provincial food and drug administration."
Well, this being China, where public lies about public health are routine, we just have to take Liu Jinai's word that "none had been used to treat patients." But imagine what Doctor Jihad could get up to if he stopped trying to use the syringe as a detonator and just resumed using it as a syringe?
Doctors are very much in a position to do real damage. Thank god this set did not pursue that course, but who's to say the next ones won't?
