As a Matter of Fact, We Should Fear This

No word on whether these two were widows or orphans*:

Security forces armed with guns and arrows killed two young women wearing explosive vests in a north Cameroon town on Monday, the second raid there in days by suspected Boko Haram militants from neighboring Nigeria, witnesses said.

The would-be suicide bombers, described as adolescent girls, entered Kolofata just before dawn, residents and officials told Reuters.

We really should fear a religious ideology that inspires adolescent girls to strap on explosive vests to murder others.

Unless the two were motivated by global warming. In that case, never mind.

The footnote.
