Terrorism Attack -- Aborted

The 10 Islamic terrorists arrested recently in Sumatra had intended to bomb the Kafe Bedudel in Bukittinggi. They had even gone as far as to plant the devices at the cafe. Fortunately, the were overcome with a conscience and aborted the plan when it became obvious that there would be more Indonesian victims and more Muslim victims than there would be foreigners or westerners.

The group had decided to select a target in Jakarta instead where they would be more likely to get a better kill ratio of foreigners to locals.

Maybe time for an enhanced travel warning?

Terrorists with self-conscience...interesting

Don't know that it is self-conscience but rather an understanding of the political reality of killing fellow Muslims and citizens is not going to win the "hearts and minds" of the people.

This can't work as a matter of fact, that is exactly what I believe.
