Bombs have been around for nearly one thousand years. Countries use them against their enemies to do harm without themselves getting harmed.
We used them in both World Wars, Vietnam and Iraq.
Japan employed the pilot as bomb…the Kamakazi, who committed suicide by crashing his explosive-loaded plane into a military target…usually a ship.
In recent years, a new type of Kamakazi weapon emerged... the suicide bomber…the man as weapon.
The suicide bomber, wearing a vest filled with explosives, sacrifices his own life in the process of taking the life of the enemy.
We now have the era of the “Political Suicide Bomber.” Although this PSB is not trying to kill anyone, he is angry and vehemently opposed to the principals, practices, and politics of the perceived “enemy”.
He therefore votes for a candidate who champions policies that harm the opposition, while unintentionally sacrificing his own self-interest in the process.
