OT: The ISIS suicide bombing motivation loop

I'm guessing it works like this:

  • Target chosen, team picked and sent in to blow themselves up. All provided with explosive jackets etc. All briefed on their objectives together.
  • Post-briefing, main player (organizer, useful bomb maker, larger cog) taken aside and secretly told to dump vest and leave scene alive.
  • Operation goes ahead, all but one do their suicide bombing thing, one "has second thoughts" and dumps explosives.
  • Goes into hiding, massive search gets underway.
  • Perp eventually found and killed/arrested.
  • Top ISIS hierarchy use arrest as motivation for next attack team

Here ends the short reminder that there are stupid motherfuckers, there are fanatical motherfuckers, there are brainwashed motherfuckers. But look behind them for the truly evil motherfuckers of this world.
