Members of Militant Forums Inquire About Ways To Extract Potassium Nitrate From Goats' Feces

A member of a militant Islamist Internet forum going by the name Kokoslh inquired on the military preparation forum of the website about the possibility of extracting Potassium Nitrate from goats' feces.

"Please provide me with a detailed explanation from A to Z," he said. "I have several manuals but I just couldn't figure it out."

Another member, Khalaila, responded with a detailed recipe, advising Kokoslh on the tools and material he needed to prepare, and the steps he should follow.

A third member called Hameed joined the discussion, addressing a few question regarding some of the material needed, and then finally told the others that he will try to carry out the experiment and would let them know if he was successful.
