The Crotchbomber Was A Lonely Loser Who Needed An Online Friend

What to do when you "do not have friends, have no one to speak too, no one to consult, no support, and feel depressed and lonely"? Easy: First, put a bomb in your underpants. Then, board an aeroplane.

That's what Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab - the crotchbomber - did, and that's what he wrote what he really was. A sad, lonely loser. Posting under the name Farouk1986, the fortunately-failed terrorist wrote 310 times in the Islamic Forum in Gawaher. His writings, adorned with sad emoticons, looked like this:

Sorry to bother you. I'm sure most of the people in this section have way bigger problems than me, so I don't want to take away attention from the more significant issues.

Basically, the problem I'm having is that I've been having extreme loneliness...for many years. I don't really know what to do because I'm not the type who likes to go out much, and I'm just shy and quiet. Even on the internet, I don't feel comfortable posting much because it exposes myself. Sometimes people are so mean.

So I'm trying to figure out what to do. I just wish I had someone to give me attention and stuff. I wish I had someone who would be there to listen to me, and always be nice to me. It really hurts to have someone neglect me or be mean. Unfortunately, a weakness of mine is that I'm sensitive, but I think I became more sensitive after something bad happened some years ago.

I wish I had at least one nice person to talk to, maybe over e-mail or Messenger. Of course, if I could find someone to marry, then Insha'Allah I would have someone in real life to give me all the attention and affection I wanted. So far, the families we've met aren't interested in me, though.

So I guess that's my story. I just feel lonely and empty and don't know what to do. Even when I focused more on my iman and trying to improve myself, it didn't help much, sad to say.

I'm sorry that you were such a lonely bloody loser, but I feel no sympathy for someone who turns his sadness into so much hate that he decides to take the live of hundreds of innocent people in plane. [Gawaher via Danger Room via Boing Boing]
