I agree that the sale of AN is regulated, but to be honest I know of plenty of stocks of AN, I live in the country, on a farm and it's really not hard
to get hold of. In 2009 up to 95% of IEDs used in Afghan consisted of an ANFO device. Additionallly, UN can also be used in place of AN, UN is
extremely easy to produce. Reference
Apparently there was a 'stock' of plastic also stolen, makes a rather effective "big surface wave front" as you put it!
Although I agree with your comment that a child could make a detonator, I believe you are being rather disingenuous just to be argumentative. Making a
detonator is not child's play and in an amateur production environment potentially very dangerous, often involving highly
sensitive compounds or the use of flash powders. Making 200 highly reliable detonators would take a considerable effort, being given 200 would be a
terrorists wet dream.
Either way, the introduction of 200 professionally made detonators, a quantity of HE grenades and a stock of plastic on to the black market cannot be
considered a trivial matter!
