Bomb incidents are outpacing new suicide bombers.
According to the Sardonika Policy Institute, the promise of 72 virgins is losing it's appeal to people crazed enough to blow themselves to smithereens, especially as jihadists recruit women and the elderly.
"After all the time and money for training," says SPI, "first day on the job, BOOM! They're gone."
SPI predicts re-usable suicide bombers who will strap a small charge on one ankle, take out a few pedestrians, lose a foot and a monrh later be back in action.
Says SPI: "They'll get four of five missions out of a single recruit."
