It's an absolute monstrosity. And it gives the lie to the notion that these bastards are 'using their bodies as weapons' (usually seen as part of a desperation/grievance narrative).

Indeed, even when they strap the bombs to themselves, they aren't using their bodies as weapons: their real targets aren't the random civilian passers-by. Rather, the charred, dismembered bodies of those passers-by are the weapons, used against a nation's polity.

These acts are the product of an ideology of death.
