Al-Qaeda 'fighters' use mentally challenged suicide bombers

The thing to remember about evil people, is that they are really evil, and their depravity knows no limits whatever. AP reports:

Remote-controlled explosives strapped to two mentally retarded women detonated in a coordinated attack on Baghdad pet bazaars Friday, Iraqi officials said, killing at least 73 people in the deadliest day since the U.S. sent 30,000 extra troops to the capital last spring.

The chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the female bombers had Down syndrome and that the explosives were detonated by remote control indicating they may not having been willing attackers in what could be a new method by suspected Sunni insurgents to subvert stepped up security measures

The so-called "suicide bombers" in the latest attacks in Iraq were not suicide bombers - they were mentally challenged women who were detonated by remote control. Downs' syndrome victims are often trusting, docile and anxious to cooperate. We can understand how this happened.
Does the word "compassion" have any meaning in this context? Are any of the anti-War protestors going to get in the least bit perturbed about this?
On the other hand, these poor women did not commit a crime. They were just abused. What can we say about the mental acuity and reasoning of so-called "normal" suicide bombers? How about the intelligence of the people who support the Iraqi "resistance?"
