The sniper needlessly kicked a hornet's nest.

But this induces nausea:

"The elaborate ceremony, in which one U.S. officer kissed a new copy of Islam's holy book before giving it to the tribal leaders, reflected the military's eagerness to stave off anger among Sunni Arabs it has been cultivating as allies."
