    Melbourne Teenager Suspected In Iraq Suicide Blasts

    SYDNEY—
    Authorities in Canberra are trying to confirm reports that an 18-year-old Australian has died while carrying out a suicide attack for the Islamic State group.

    The radical Sunni group has claimed that Jake Bilardi had been killed in a series of blasts in the Iraqi city of Ramadi.

    In propaganda published online, the Islamic State group claimed it had used foreign fighters from Australia, Belgium, Syria and Uzbekistan in a coordinated onslaught of suicide attacks in Ramadi.

    One photograph showed the image of a young man who closely resembles Bilardi sitting behind the wheel of a white van.

    The teenager left his home in the southern city of Melbourne in August and flew to the Middle East.

    Officials said he had come to the attention of the security agencies, and had his Australian passport canceled in October. By then, however, he was in the conflict zone, having apparently been recruited by the Islamic State terrorist group.

    ^ I would like to post-humously thank him for removing his DNA from the gene pool.

    Very sad that this obviously troubled teenager found his way into something as nihilistic as ISIS - and apparently found something he felt was a spiritual home there. Not unintelligent either - seems to have gotten lost after the death of his Mother.

    Typical that the more deadbeat Teakdoor members' reaction is ''good riddance".

    Teens can behave unpredictably at the best of times and the death of a parent can send them into a downward spiral. Maybe he was looking for death and unfortunately Isis got him. Sad

    got to feel sorry for the Syrian/ Iraqi people - their countries flooded with with foreigners, from all sides, turning the place into a battleground .

    ^Another former British soldier might be on his way to risk martyrdom soon.

    ^ I doubt that any of you would keep standing on high moral ground in symapthy when a teenage scumbag beheads a close family a member with a box cutter.

    I hear ya......and by the time he climbed behind the steering wheel, yes, he was a lost cause.

    But the tragedy for this boy/young man was that he was brainwashed by some hate-preaching ideologue (presumably still safe and sound), who took advantage of his vulnerability/youthful weakness - and it subverted him to the point where he took this destructive step.
