Terrorism Chic

You can read about the probable killing in Chechnya of the Jordanian Jihadi, Abu Hafs al-Urdani on the Counter Terrorism blog. All very interesting, but the immediate thing that struck me was: what is it about hard guys and leather fingerless gloves?

It's all a bit 1980s if you ask me. Nevertheless like taping at least two magazines together for your machine gun, it seems in the rough and tough world of global insurgency, you just won't be taken seriously without black fingerless gloves.
