Suicide Bomber Gets Shot Out Of a Cannon At a Drone, Misses

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (The Global Edition) — Due to a lack of funding by major terrorist organizations, a shadowy militant group attempted to take down a U.S. drone by firing out one of its suicide bombers from an actual cannon directly at it, near the capital of Pakistan earlier this week, sources say.

The attempt of a group calling itself the Al-Poorah Front resulted in a complete failure as the marksmen missed the drone and blasted 18-year-old Ashur Abu-Khalid into a nearby building, causing serious injuries to young Pakistani and a minor damage to the building.

The group issued a statement recorded on a VHS tape and then uploaded via dial-up to their Livejournal page: “This was a message to all the big terrorist organizations out there so they can see our willingness and dedication to fight the infidels,” read a distorted voice, with black text scrolling across a white screen and Islamic chanting playing in the background.

The distorted voice also said that the “terrorist game isn’t really easy for poor countries who don’t have any special outside funding, but they are looking and willing to talk with foreign investors so they can organize proper terrorist attacks like plane takeovers with bomb wired vests, so they don’t have to waste any more valuable men by firing them out of old cannons at silly drones.”

The Al-Poorah Front has claimed past attacks through statements posted on militant websites, taking credits for such acts as “throwing a rock through a window at a NATO base”, “Letting the air out of tires of U.S. soldiers’ vehicles, then scratching them with keys” and most notorious of all “burning an American flag in a dark and deserted alley”.

    Is this some kind of out-of-sync April Fool’s joke? Nobody can survive being shot out of a real cannon.

      Try going to a circus and watch the man who gets shot out of a cannon. Anyhow after reading the article and the clowns it described, they might try next time with slingshots made out of bras.

  • leo

    well, you may want to make it more clear that it’s a joke.

    apparently nothing that those idiots would do will surprise me so i actually took it seriously… until i read another article about Apple by a sheer chance.

    The cannon looks too small for a human to squezze down the tube. They should use a larger cannon and aim above and in front of the drone. Be sure to paint Allah is Great on the guy’s forehead for luck.

  • soren

    Yes, this is a pathetic story of terrorist wannabes. Suggests there is little to do in today’s Pakistan: not many skateboard parks for the kids, no hanging out in malls oggling the chicks, all the normal activities for young males. Instead it’s well…this pathetic activity. You have to wonder how many such wannabes there are.

    • http://YourWebsite... Adam

      Actually we’re wondering just wondering what happened to your brain?. Also it’s “ogling”.

    OMG!! The people commenting who didn’t realize this was an (obvious) joke should be euthanized immediately. You’re depleting limited resources and will never make a positive contribution to society. Incredibly stupid…

  • http://YourWebsite... Jean

    OMG! Is this for real. What an idiot or should I say idiots. It just goes to show what “creative” thinking can do…..and that’s total failure on all counts. I really think this could be a top 10 movie with no shortage of idiot extras. I think even Allah would laugh at this one. *** //Edit: Sorry, no bashing other people beliefs.

    Too bad he is not in America or Obama could have gotten another vote out of him with the rest of the Obama morons.

  • http://YourWebsite... Peter

    With the US now reducing its military to a level some small third world countries might stand a chance of doing damage, this is something to consider as a stop gap measure! Put Obama in as a test shot!

  • http://YourWebsite... TreeTopFlyer

    The problem is they’re thinking small…they need to recruit a BUNCH more people and shoot them all at the same time in barrages…blimey, it just might work! Hey, ya never know! Just sayin!

    Wow, I really misread this article. I initially thought it was far too obvious that it was a joke, far too exaggerated and absurd to be funny. But, reading the comments, I see that it wasn’t quite obvious ENOUGH. There are – astonishingly – people out there who thought it was for real.

    Which makes me wonder – how far would they have to go before readers would finally realise that they weren’t actually being serious? Pretty frickin’ far, it seems.

    Holy Bible, John 16 Jesus is speaking: “All this I have told you so that you will not fall away. 2 They will put you out of the church; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. 3 They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me. 4 I have told you this, so that when their time comes you will remember that I warned you about them.——–“All this I have told you (my followers — Christians) so that you will not fall away (from the true faith). 2 They (of a false religion) will put you out of the church; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. 3 They (of this false religion) will do such things because they have not known God the Father or me (Jesus Christ, son of God). 4 I have told you this, so that when their time comes (for killing) that you will remember that I warned you about them.
