Why don't suicide bombers include their family in their undertakings?

Asked by mammal (9431points) September 9th, 2010

Wife, kids, sisters, mum and dad, wouldn’t that offer better cover too, make people less suspicious?

Perhaps they won’t get the 70 virgins if they take their own family.

They do. Here’s a few stories about them using children and training their children to be suicide bombers. Here’s a few stories about female suicide bombers.

Some do – the rest obviously consider women and children and the elderly to be useless.

Many suicide bombers do it for money, protection, or whatever for their families. They give their life so their families will have something. So if the whole family dies, well then it kinda loses the point.

Well, a high IQ isn’t exactly a pre-requisite for the job.

Nothing about suicide bombing makes any sense to me.

They have to leave someone behind who actually believes they are a martyr or remember they were a complete idiot.

Because it’s an irrational and illogical and evil act to take the lives of innocent people who have nothing to do with the suicide bomber’s cause. Therefore it makes no sense to expect irrational an illogical and evil people to behave in rational and logical ways otherwise.
