Black Death Vs the Terrorists

It seems like Al Qaida faces a threat just as deadly as American bombers: The bubonic plague.

According to this news report, the plague swept through a terrorist training camp in Algeria and killed at least 40 trainees. What's more, the disease might also be spreading to other terrorist camps around the world.

The story quotes one security expert as saying, “This is the deadliest weapon yet in the war against terror. Most of the terrorists do not have the basic medical supplies needed to treat the disease."

Somehow it seems appropriate that a group espousing a Medieval view of the world would be afflicted with a sickness that once ravaged the Medieval world.

It is indeed an appropriate end for them. During the major 13th Century 'Black Death' plague, many people of that time thought they had displeased God, and God was punishing them.
I would like to think that these barbarians would get the same idea.
