A member of a jihadist forum posted yesterday, March 16, 2006, a suggested means of figurately giving the ?Crusader countries a heart attack? by applying physical pressure to the structure of oil pipelines so as to cease the flow and cause a ?clot? in the oil arteries. The author discusses what he believes to be both the merit and functionality of his suggestion, in that it is largely clandestine, does not spill oil and harm the Muslim?s ?treasure,? and is a temporary solution until the ?devilish rulers? are removed from power. He provides seven points of us idea, suggesting that machinery, brute force or heavy trucks be applied to an oil pipeline at several points to contort its shape, and then dirt dug up to go beneath the pipeline replaced so that security officials cannot locate the source of the damage, or even the particular cause. He also provides a series of pictures of oil pipelines and hydraulic compacting machines.
Members replying to the posting laud the author for the ?brilliant idea?. One member in particular provides information regarding Saudi Arabian pipelines stretching into the desolate desert, and another prays that the mujahideen in Iraq will put the plan into action.
