‘Become a suicide bomber’ posters spring up across London
LONDON: Mysterious posters inscribed with a message ‘Become a Suicide Bomber’ put up across London attributing them with the Royal Navy has sparked fury.
At first glance it appears to be what it called “unusually-worded recruitment advertisements for the Royal Navy…” The posters read, “become a suicide bomber” and features three sailors in uniform with a red cross-hair superimposed on them.
According to the Telegraph, the posters also “feature the naval force’s branding, and the text directs people to the website for information about joining the crew of a nuclear submarine.”
“The crew of our nuclear submarines are on a suicide mission,” the posters read. “To launch their missiles means death is certain, not just for them, but for the millions of innocent people those bombs will obliterate, and for the rest of us too.”
The posters are a spoof intended to criticize the Royal Navy.
Writing online “anti-army recruitment” comic creator Darren Cullen — the man behind the design — said: “A Royal Navy recruitment poster I designed has started appearing in dozens of locations around London.
“Nuclear bombs are suicide bombs – it is impossible to use these weapons without also killing ourselves.
“Terrorists are willing to commit suicide to brutally murder innocent people, but so are we.
Cullen added: “Due to NATO membership and our alleged Special Relationship, we’re also committed to a nuclear suicide pact with America.”
