Flypaper for asshats...

Over at Impearls, an interesting article: BBC confirms the flypaper strategy.

This has long been suspected, of course. It's what the soldiers speak of when they talk about how it's better to play "an away game" than a "home game."

But for the Beeb to come up with it is pretty neat. Here's a spiffy quote from David Warren, which gives an idea...

"It is the Islamist analogy to the way young socialists, anarchists, and adventurers from across Europe were drawn to Spain during its Civil War in the 1930s. "
