Firstly, I think the media needs to come up with a suitably emasculating nickname for him. “Shoe Bomber” was sort of descriptive, but not embarrassing enough. The BBC seem to be calling him the “Jet bomber”, which is way too macho and impressive-sounding. Preferably something that even his Al Qaeda buddies would use to tease him, should he ever see them again.
How about “panty bomber”? “Trouser terrorist”? “Crotch warrior”? I bet others on here could come up with something more creative; who knows, we might be able to spread a meme!
Secondly: I think that instead of all the media attention on the terrorist, we should spend more time praising the hero that saved a plane full of people. I don’t think I’d have had the balls to do what Jasper Schuringa did.
