Homicide Bombers in Jordan

Reuters: Suicide bombers kill at least 57 in Amman blasts---

AMMAN (Reuters) - Three suspected suicide bombers blew themselves up at three international hotels in Jordan's capital on Wednesday, killing at least 57 people and wounding more than 100 others, government officials and police said.

Two of the bombs exploded as crowds of people were celebrating weddings, leaving blood and destruction among guests at Amman's luxury Grand Hyatt hotel and the nearby Radisson SAS. A third blast targeted a Days Inn in the city.

The explosion at the Radisson tore through a banqueting room where about 250 people were attending a wedding reception, witnesses said. A smaller wedding, attracting several dozen well-dressed young people, was going on at the Hyatt.

Reuters correspondents at the Radisson and Hyatt saw dozens of people injured people, including one young woman hit by shrapnel in her legs and back and apparently left paralyzed.

At the Hyatt, one waiter, identified by his name tag as Mustafa, lay motionless on the hotel's back steps as guests tried to resuscitate him before ambulance workers arrived.

Many Westerners, including tourists, businessmen and foreign contractors working in Iraq, were staying at the three hotels. The Radisson is known to be popular with Israeli tourists.
Of course, no mention of the word "terrorist," as Reuters doesn't like to label terrorists terrorists. In other news, Reuters doesn't like to label oranges oranges because it might offend the apples.

These terrorists obviously don't care who they harm, though they certainly pick their targets with purpose: Israeli and western tourists, businessmen, and contractors. Yet, innocent Jordanians were also harmed.

What will it take for the Libs and Appeasers (same thing) of the World to wake up and smell the explosives? These evil, cowardly animals don't care who they harm; they just want to create as much havoc and despair as possible.
