Bombers were Doctors

Has anyone else appreciated the irony that the latest round of bombs planted in London, (which didn't work), apparently were made by Doctors in the National Health Service?

Seems like while they may have been fine Doctors, their bomb-making skills were very deficient.

Maybe they just wanted to raise their quota of patients for July?

It does seem a bit like it would defy the hippocratic oath. Fuckers.

too many responses ... can't bear it:

1) They're part of a new non-profit group: Doctors Without Morals.

2) The bombs were designed to maim but not kill. Doctors don't really get paid to work on dead bodies.

3) They just don't teach 'em like they used to. It's all Internet-Internet-Internet these days. As if reading a book will tell you how to make a bomb. Jeez.

Don't forget the bombs were all about killing sluts and druggies (people who go to nightclubs).

But they were hypocrites. Does that count?

"First, do no harm." -- followed closely by the "First Corollary to the Hypocratic oath:

"Then, if you MUST build a bomb, make sure it won't work very well."

Well, being a doctor is just a career.

Just like a preacher can visit sex workers at night, why can't doctor kill someone while being off duty?

In this case casulties were limited to one of the "bombers"* who managed to set himself alight before being subdued** by the police and airport workers. I'm afraid I tend to concur with the register's view***.

* if burning out a car with a few gas canisters in counts
** i.e. had the shit kicked out of him.

These Doctors are paid by and part of the British Gov, so its bloody funny that we're trying to kill outselves

Okay, but in all fairness their terrorist training WASN'T paid for by the British Government.  They had to 'outsource' that.

They could be screwing with people invidividually in all sorts of ways.
