    I just saw this on the news, where AL Qaeda are immitating a technique used by drug smugglers.THeyve devised a way of putting explosive devices up their rectum, and then setting it off when the planes in mid air. THe technique was demonstrated when they attempted to assisinate a Saudi Prince. The bomber on this occassion got past all the checkpoints, however experts reckon you can't detect anyone with an explosive device place in body cavities unless a full body search is undertaken. Al Qaeda have said that they are going to make the instructions freely avaliable on the internet.
    You can really expect problems with air travel, if it becomes the standard practice for any would be terrorist.

    Now has that put you off air travel, if you have to go through a internal body search every time you board a plane.?

    hah, i thought about the possibility some time ago. if they're really smart they'd use binary explosives too.

    anyway, in case you didn't see the comical value of this situation. lemme demonstrate:
    "ahmed, ahmed, come here. lemme shove this bomb up your ass."

    [ahmed on a bumpy ride to the airport and the canister containing one of the liquid components of the binary explosive discharges prematurely]
    random kid: "mommy, mommy, something's coming out of that man's butt"

    edit to add: btw, i too travel a LOT by air. full cavity search of every passenger or a sniffer dog up everyone's ass is definitely gonna suck.

    Dont know anything about what makes things go bang so whats the advantage of a binary explosive? How would you get the two to mix if its shoved up your arse?

    I think Ill have to pic a national airline that no ones got a grudge against the country.
    It could certainly disrupt the tourist passengers anyway.If You are a big shot businessman one can charter ones own plane etc.

    Gosh...reminds me of the Aliens. Seriously, how much of explosive power can they stuff in? The terrorist may not die instantly and instead end up struggling for tens of seconds with an exploded stomach. :mad:

    i guess they're less likely to blow up chinese ( i hope)

    i dont think the other passengers would be worried about him, theyre sitting in a plane that could be going down.

    The news item I saw, they showed the top half of the would be assasins body, he was going after the Saudi prince who was in charge of interviewing Al Qaeda operatives who wanted to repent/change sides. The assasin was right next to the prince when he triggered it but the blast wasnt big enough to hurt the prince, but in a pressurized plane, it would be a different story. Remember not so long ago the brits just sentenced a bunch of Pakistanis for trying to blow up planes, boy im glad they didnt have this stuff then, but it looks like the Al Qaeda are gonna make it avaliable. I sure hope it dont happen.

    The only person, who would be worried about it, is the terrorist himself - especially after the bomb has gone off!

    The point is the amount of explosive that can be carried that way, may not be enough to bring the plane down. It may be enough to punch a hole through the plane resulting in the lost of cabin pressure, but will this be enough to bring down the plane? Don't know. But still this won't guarantee that this kind of terrorist act will not happen.

    I think the sad part of it is they will forget about it until one day it happens, and everybody will be in a panic. A similar scenario was when they starting banning what you could take on as carry on luggage in response to a proven scare.
