Sorry, but i will take the verdict of an expert over yours.. and unsuprisingly he stated the same as i did.. that petrol and gas cylinders don't make fuel-air explosives unless detonated with a true explosive.. petrol does not explode, we are not in hollywood. Gas canisters don't explode like grenades..

They were incendiary devices, and not high explosive devices.

I'll take the word of an expert as well, i.e. the EOD bloke at Thiepval Barracks who I spoke to not 3 days ago who related this to me. His job is to dispose of all forms of IEDs used in terrorist attacks. These are devices that were in common usage during the early years of the troubles in Ulster. The devices are big, bulky and not particularly reliable, but they were in common use in the early days of the troubles.

The explosive force of compressed petrol is one of the principles taught at the British Army explosive demolition course. It is not the petrol that provides the explosive force, it is the gas produced. The petrol then adds fuel to the mix as it rapidly vaporises and ignites. It is classed as a low explosive due to the relitively slow burn rate when compared to PE. The ignition rate and explosive force is actually higher than traditional gunpowder.

However as I stated earlier this does not just happen if you put a flame to the petrol. It relies on efficient detonation of the gas via an electrical current or some such. Otherwise the petrol just burns.

Here is an update on the investigation that I posted earlier today.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

One Australian paper is reporting that up to 12 medical professionals are under investigation for their participation in the attack.

I can't believe people haven't picked up on the fact that they could have been spreading infectious diseases to cause a pandemic

It has been mentioned, but a lack of ANY evidence of that taking place has made sure that we save the wholesale panic until a later date.

It's just wild speculation at best.

and PaddyInf is right on the money. my brother almost killed himself a couple years ago with only 250ml of gasoline in a glass jar, you let it sit out for a few hours so the fumes to build, a 9v battery and 2 wires is all it takes to set it off.
I heard the explosion from 2 blocks away. don't worry I kicked his butt some good once he healed.
