    Are you saying that you think that the riggers of those two mercedes wanted them to be found undetonated?

    If so... care to point out some other cases where terrorists (with the occasional exception of the IRA) wanted their bombs to be found unexploded when not phoning in demands or a clear warning?

    Check out GoddersUK's post. I've got an explanation there.

    Muslim men? Did they run out of the car shouting 'Allahu Akbar' before praying towards Mecca?

    They were two Asian guys. No word on their religious beliefs or motives yet.

    Obviously you people have not been in india when the brits killed and tortured people. Nor have you been in india when bombs were blasted and more than 1/2 million killed in kashmir and UK and US were silent. Nor were you when a dictator was fed and armed by US and UK during his use of chemical weapons against Iran. Wait have you been to iraq where 100 people die everyday??

    You are so angry against them for failed bombs then how angry would those guys be for successful bombs going on there everyday?? Perplexed

    I'm sorry but your explanation/opinion is completely worthless and uninformed and frankly I feel stupider for having read it.

    What possible advantage is there to a terrorist to allow their munitions to be found unexploded prior to a larger attack when they could just as easily detonate the earlier stuff and cause more death and destruction? None.

    Sure, they are causing terror by saying "we could have killed you at any time"... but by doing so they are showing their hand and giving the good guys a good chance of capturing them, instead they'd be better off detonating the first stuff (more effect) or better yet not detonate anything and staying out of sight and not calling attention to themselves until after the larger attack(s)... lets not forget that terrorists are generally not keen on giving any kind of specific warning of their capabilities or targets... instead when they want to send a message with a bomb, they do their best to make sure it blows up.

    I mentioned the IRA because they were one of those rare organizations who would give warning of specific attacks so that (in theory) civilians would have a chance to get clear... and we have not been seeing this tactic all that much (there are a couple of just a couple of cases in fact) from the terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan or the rest of Europe... so chances are they are not of the political sort (aka "we demand the release of all political prisoners" or "we demand the release members of _____ who are currently being held.")

    Dr Herbie is correct... bomb making is not the easiest thing and a lot can go wrong in the process of building and properly detonating any kind of explosive device. If you are lucky and have access to unspent military ordinance (like what a good chunk of the IED's killing Iraqi civilians are based on)... it's a relatively simple matter (by comparison) to rig a couple weapons of war to blow up simultaneously in the trunk of a car... taking off the shelf parts and building your own is far more tricky.

    Better yet... a small chunk of Mexican territory per illegal.

    The United States will never agree to membership in an EU style 'North American Union' as it has to much to lose... however allow thing the 31 Mexican states to join the United States under the US Constitution would be a much more pallatible idea.

    Tone down. Dylan, keep your racist remarks to yourself (better yet, throw them away and use your critical thinking skills...)

    Do not take the thread to the dark side.

    Naw.  Just deport the extremists and Jimmy Carter.  Never ever nuke if it isn't absolutely critical, since the repercussions are bad for everyone, use conventional bombs if you have a target  Tongue Out  Stop prosecuting American soldiers who do their jobs.  Don't trust enemy agents to tell the truth about what happened in a gun fight.  Stop selling critical national commodities to foreign interests.  Hike up tariffs on foreign imports, particularly those from asian countries with devalued currency.  And demand one barrel of oil per day from Mexico for each illegal alien found in the United States.  Stop beating up the poor Serbians, they were there for centuries, not the Albanians!

    If you stumbled and fell down, it doesn't mean yet, that you're going in the wrong direction.
