A fuel air bomb done “right”

Actually, they miscalculated just how much…

Suspected robbers in Germany appear to have miscalculated the quantity of explosives needed to blow their way into a rural bank.

The building housing the bank in the northern village of Malliss was largely destroyed by an overnight explosion.

The bank’s cash machine survived intact and the suspected thieves are not thought to have made away with any money, Germany’s Welt Online reported.

No-one was injured, though the blast damaged nearby cars and buildings.

Investigators were working on the assumption that robbers had placed their explosives, possibly made from petrol or acetylene, at the entrance to the bank, German broadcaster NDR said.

The presence of a delivery van near the site of the explosion indicated that the suspected thieves may have intended to drive off with the cash dispenser, local media reported.

It also indicates that they didn’t need a carload of gasoline to do it, nor a bunch of really useless (except for propaganda) firecrackers. Gas is really touchy stuff, you know. Fuel + Air + spark = KABOOOOOOM!! It doesn’t take much either, get a couple of 5 gallon cans and just enough gas to fill them with THE FUMES. Liquid gasoline doesn’t explode.

Take for instance the truckload of Ammonia Nitrate fertilizer that Tim McVeigh used in Oklahoma City. Peeled off the front of the building. and the front of the buildings across the street. Very powerful, but to knock down buildings, bridges, railroad trestles, you need more than the half dozen sticks of dynamite they used to show in the old Western movies. More than just a barrel of black powder. The structures are made to withstand the forces of nature, over long periods of time, with minimal maintenance.

The Oklahoma City buildings had withstood at least one tornado. And, of course, they used a small truckload of the Blasting Powder (not giving away secrets here, hillbillies who can’t read their own names use this to clear stumps. Easier than chopping and digging, and a helluva lot faster) and it peeled the fronts off the buildings.

Witness, however, THIS destruction.

...from a device they hand-carried to the front of the building...

Terrorists? Maybe. Simple thieves more like it. Police still haven’t caught up to them, if you noticed from the article.

Propaganda Story “Military Medics Fight to Keep Afghan Boy Alive”

While in actuality, they were just prior to the kid getting blown apart, fighting to kill him.
Military Medics are NOT non-combatants. They’re COMBAT support. That was impressed on us in Basic Training and once again in Tech School, we were to be basically Monkey Mechanics, keeping the Human Fighting Machines in good working order. Every bit as dehumanized and coldly efficiently calculated as the base armorer keeping the Rifles in good working order. The base Veterinarians office keeping the Police Attack Dogs in good working order, and a subset of that, the Base Exterminator (yes, under the command of the Base Veterinarian) whose job is to control wild animals, like the flocks of birds near the runways, skunks, coyotes, rats, cats both native and feral, wild hogs, etc etc…
And to use Herbicides like Agent Orange to kill the native vegetation, so that there’s a clear field of fire.
They SAY all this is necessary because if we don’t do that, we wouldn’t be able to provoke and fight Wars.
Help me out here, I’m not seeing an actual Downside.

A far simpler solution than patching up the kid after first dismantling him, how about just Get The Fuck Out Of HIS Country, and stop using Massive Firepower to dismantle his country, and stop using that firepower to dismantle HIM and other PEOPLE like him.

You God-damn blow people apart then for a propaganda photo-opportunity patch one of them back together, to what, show that you’re not the Dehumanized Uniformed Drones (duds) who are forcing your “Superior” civilization on his people? Because you’re so God-Damned culturally and morally sophisticated that you Owe It To Him and his fellow Kids to murder them if they don’t bow down to that “superior” sophisticated culture? And of course the “superior” Military.

They told us in Tech School that in combat zones we should scrape that Red Cross off our helmets.

Told us that there was a Commie Propaganda campaign that started in the Korean war, saying that American Military used the Red Cross symbol to smuggle munitions. I’ll find the post I made about that, A Dynamite Box label for “red cross BRAND military grade Extra Dynamite 1949” written in Chinese.

The boxes I had found in a military landfill on Ft Bliss, Texas, had the inscription in English.
Which your average Chinese or North Korean soldier wouldn’t have been able to read any more than the Redneck War-pigs here would be able to read the same thing in Chinese.
All they would be able to understand would be the Red Cross symbol.

But of course the VietNamese people and the Laotian and Cambodian and Chines were just, you know, Lying because that’s what Commies do.

Besides, “We are here to win your hearts and minds…. or just burn down your goddam huts”
