    Default Mail Bombs

    Ok, so the whole bomb thing needs it's own thread so here it is.

    Here is a very decent commentary about them and the response.

    I asked for neither your Opinion,
    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.

    It is just strange to me, one with the timing, two not a single one of them has gone off. We aren't lucky enough to not have a single one detonate.

    Also, according to a bunch of Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection classes I've taken while in... This guy just made the biggest prototypical mail bomb package. His package literally looks exactly like what it says to look out for. It is almost as if he looked at the manuals and said "My package will look like that." Grease stains, misspellings, excess postage. He couldn't have made it more obvious unless he wrote "THIS IS A BOMB" on the damn things.

    Agreed.

    The bombs look very prop worthy. We'll know after a full investigation.

    Some bomb experts are saying the thing looks silly. One guy said the wires shouldn't be exposed outside of the bomb and they could have used a much smaller timer and put that inside the bomb also so the whole thing is inside the pipe. Instead someone was able to pull the pipe bomb out of the package and take a picture of it, not to mention it looks like an ISIS flag is wrapped around it, wires are on the outside, and a larger timer is on the outside also. It looks like a typical cartoon/movie prop bomb.

    I'm really leaning towards this being a false flag. Not a sanctioned one, mind you, but some idiot doing it on their own.

    They have so much evidence on them though, I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't surveilling the person that is responsible right now.

    I heard through an anonymous source that it was cwolff.

    The timeline is consistent with his PC absence, so it's probably true.

    That's more than enough evidence for the left to convict someone. I say let's throw'em in jail!

    Andre 3000 and Big Boi are responsible. Case closed. You're welcome.

    I really like that the bomb maker had red wire for positive and black wire for negative, like the bomb won't work if you use the same color of wire.

    Fuck, okay. I wasn't the only one who saw that.
