    I keep hearing in news reports how crude and small these bombs were, and yet... while relatively few were killed, a good many were injured and the overall response- from the media, the politicos, the pundits, and just the `common man` has been overwhelming. Mission accomplished, I guess.

    A few years ago a suicide bomber tried to use bombs like these in Stockholm, and tried to bomb the crowd Christmas shopping.

    But luckily he was either the most incompetent man on earth, or Allah wasn`t on his side.

    First he blew up a car with some propane canisters in it.
    The explosion weak, and hardly anyone was around. Two people got minor injuries and were later taken to hospital.

    The bomber then walked into an alley and strapped on a suicide belt made of 6 pipebombs.
    Trying to arm the belt, one of the pipebombs on the belt exploded and killed him.
    He was carrying a pressure cooker bomb in a backpack at the time, but this didn`t explode.
    No one else was injured.

    Apparently the "Times Square" bomb was similar. It didn`t go off though (iirc).

    Same principle as a pipe bomb: explosives, detonator, solid containment (which makes the bomb more explodey...) just bigger.

    @thefatviking: I remember him! It might have been funny if it wasn`t so serious, and those two people were hurt after all...

    whodat, you must be mistaken. This bomb couldn`t POSSIBLY have been found on an Islamic extremist site. It could only have been found on some right-wing extremist site like Fox News or Drudge Report or the Republican National Committee. I know because all the genius liberals on this site have told me Muslims are peaceful and never do this sort of thing.

    "I know because all the genius liberals on this site have told me Muslims are peaceful and never do this sort of thing."

    Oh Jesus F.uck Me Christ. Do we always have to go through the same stupid bulls.hit?

    Some muslims are violent sadistic a.ssholes that should be rounded up and slaughtered.

    However judging ALL muslims based on the actions of muslim terrorists is the same as judging ALL christins on the actions of Timothy McVeigh.

    Do you honestly not get that?

    I almost forgot, I was going to mention a movie called Four Lions that was mentioned in the article. I`m surprised none of the conspiracy theory f*cktards have mentioned it yet.

    It`s a dark comedy about a group of wannabe British jihadists that are total f*ck-ups and their eventual plot to bomb the London Marathon. It`s kind of like what would happen if the Three Stooges tried to pull off a terrorist attack, one of the funniest films I`ve seen in a long time.

    Here`s the trailer, I think most of you would enjoy it.

    Although I decry all violence, the US has lost the moral high-ground and is reaping what it has sown.

    "Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror," the President said, calling the attacks a "Heinous and cowardly act."

    For example, just hours earlier, not three but THIRTY members of an Afghan wedding party were killed by a US bomb.

    We must eliminate all violence. Bring the troops home and discontinue drone strikes and bombing. We are not wanted over there by insurgents, the population, our allies, or even by the puppet government that we have installed. Coalition forces can not prevent terrorism on home soil.

    @whodat6484 Thanks for that video trailer. F-me that was funny! I have to go and watch that.

    I also think it`s funny that the first linked video in the suggested links (Featured by youtube and all) appears to be of a girl masturbating.

    The US lost the moral high ground in Vietnam in the 60s. We`ve been paranoid reactionaries ever since (hmm, good band name). There will always be morons willing to kill kids - in government and without - for some lame-brain cause.

    HG, you had to go back nearly 20 years to find a single example of what Muslim terrorists have done hundreds of times since then. And somehow, you find those situations to be morally equivalent.

    And besides, It`s not "f***ing libtard"; it`s "liberal f***tard." I didn`t use it, because I thought that it would be restating the obvious. Unfortunately, I forgot your about your limited cognitive abilities.

    Score:
    @OldOllie: 1 @HolyGod: 0

    @MacGovern: Actually, that`s precisely the reason. idk if you were joking or not, but the "air tight seal" acts as a "force multiplier" and REALLY make the "BOOM" bigger!

    This has been known since WW2... (if not before, but for sure since then).
