I'm Feeling...Ah, Creative...

Read the news today, and saw that Al Qaeda used two women with Downs Syndrome as suicide bombers. Probably promised the fruits of Paradise (which, according to Islam, women don't get) and they were detonated by remote control, which suggests that they weren't exactly volunteers. Or might have been told that they were to leave the bombs then get out of the area. Which means they were used as human cruise missiles, and that Al Qaeda used to their ends.

This is a good sign in some ways-that Iraq is stable enough that the usual "kid with a Semtex overcoat" strategy isn't working and they have to delve into a deeper and different pool of "recruits" to carry out their suicidal attacks. But, of course, the leadership won't be the ones doing it...they need to "lead" and let others go on to Paradise.

When they're captured, sad to say, they will probably just be put up against the nearest wall and shot once we confirm they don't have info we need, or will spend time in Gitmo while they fling fecal matter and stage riots with the guards, all the time lying about being tortured. Which is sad, really, because I have some better ideas of what to do with them...

My idea? We get the cells in order-newest to oldest prisoners. Then, in order of arrival, we start turning them into women. We use hormones, implants, sexual reassignment surgery, plastic surgery, etc, etc...the ones that talk and start talking quickly, we'll make sure they get therapy, training and help so that they can be released out into the world as women. The ones that are a problem? We make sure they know they're going to the worst brothels in Turkey and the Balkans...where the customers know exactly what they were.

Make sure the cells are done in a Panopticon style, so all the prisoners can see what's going on. Hell, I might even have photos taken of their "progress", and quietly distributed in the Islamic world...

Yes, I know it won't happen.
It's wrong on so many levels.
But, damn it, I'm feeling so creative with the idea...

Concept stolen from Tom Kratman, whose books I recommend to your attention. (Baen.com)

Yes, I think I've bought every one of his books, either electronically or in physical media.

Besides, I think it's a great idea and always worth sharing.
