    Default Iraqi Woman Confesses to Suicide-Bomb in Jordan

    Does anyone else find the whole thing really bizarre?

    It just gives me one of those feelings like wait. stop. lets think deeper into this one and not take it at face value.

    I guess I just feel like the whole detailed, highly highly publicized confession, is uncharacteristic of what i thought culturally would be an iraqi womans role especially one who attempted to be a suicide-bomber.

    i dont know i guess im just suspicious of the whole thing. i feel like theres something deeper or bigger behind it and shouldnt be taken at face value. i just dont think it makes sense culturally and thats really bothering me.

    but i tried to talk to my friend about it and he was getting mad at me. so i figured ide just ask about here!

    Yes - I just watched it on the news and thought it was all very strange. I'm not sure what to make of it.

    Any reason why you posted this in the Australia, New Zealand & Asia forum?

    Honestly, I wouldn't take anything they say in the news as 100% truth....

    can this thread be moved to General or something, rather than under Australia & NZ?

    i figured it would be under world or something but there wasnt another area so i figured asia is the continent that most includes the middle east i guess. i guess i could have posted under everything else or something - but i was going for geography here - sorry!

    is uncharacteristic of what i thought culturally would be an iraqi womans role especially one who attempted to be a suicide-bomber.
    How is it uncharacteristic?
