a Truck Bomb does NOT leave a crater!
See FOOL ME TWICE video @ minute 56 ... below

In the US television series Mythbusters they detonateda truck full of explosives.It was completely wiped out. It left no crater.

WHAT TYPE OF EXPLOSIVE leaves such a crater and IGNITES a wide area by extremely hot radiation? (alpha radiation? radioactivity is gone very quickly)

I wondered the same thing. I've never seen a truck bomb leave a crater like that.

Great pictures! I was looking for more visual data concerning this latest "Al-Qaeda" attack. Thanks!

I was wondering about that crater as well... I mean, what the hell?

Good thread.

Oklahoma City bombing Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building
"A massive bomb inside a rental truck exploded, blowing half of the nine-story building into oblivion."

I don't see a "crater" here...

I am not an expert but simple logic make me think its nearly impossible that a bomb in a car can make a crater like this

First watch the mythbuster cement truck explode, thats a huge powerfull explosion but no crater left... ( i wonder the result if they had dropped the truck from 2000 feet...crater ?)

the ground cannot be burried like that with a STATIONNARY SURFACE explosion, the power of the explosion should only be DEFLECTED upward by the ground not digging a hole in it.

i read somewhere that it possible to control the path of the explosion force ( detonate close to a wall etc...same physic apply here)

to create a hole like that with an explosion you have to :

detonate the bomb underground (land mine) or put some up to down velocity to "push" the explosion force downward / have some ground penetration (like bomb or missile dropped by plane or so..)

im not an expert in physics or bomb only common sensed.

As soon as isaw the first news reports something just didnt look right about it all, was it something to do with the Czech envoy that was killed or maybe more sinister.

That's definitely looks like a bomb dropped from a plane.
Even artillery or mortars wouldn't make that huge of a crater.
If they made a directional dependent improvised explosive device inside a truck they wouldn't design it to explode downward.
They would design it to explode towards the hotel.
However they may have messed that up.

They used JET FUEL !!!

since 911 jet fuel have many convenient and yet undiscovered useful usage !

hey , jet fuel bring down the twins ,no ? no...

( for the little brain im just kidding now...)

Radical Islamic terrorists.
Probably trying out some new 'fun' ways to kill people. :shk:

My first reaction to this very sad ant cowardous attack on inocent lives is "CAUSUS BELLI". Created by the US government to let them invade Pakistan. Don't tell me thats off topic or anti-american. This is ATS. And I am sad to say this wasn't the first response to this topic.

WHO DID THIS ? I say it ou loud.

Uh oh... Somebody missed.

I'd hate to jump to conclusions here, but if this supposed Marine truck was unloading steel boxes to the 4th and 5th floors, and people have claimed to have noticed "two explosions." Maybe the bomb was supposed to finish the job the internal explosives didn't, but missed. So, now we have 40 dead and non of them are parliament members that were packed in there for a meeting. Pakistani officials did OK retaliatory actions towards the U.S. a week ago after they turned our helicopters away. Maybe this was an "O Rly?" moment gone wrong.

"See! You need us! Terrorists just struck against your freedoms!"

I'm excited to hear what turns up in the investigation.

I agree with you that help the us government continue that joke called "war on terror"


Do you really think G.W. Bush is in charge of something, anything ? Bush is a docile puppet with average to low IQ elected by fraudulent manipulation of that "safe vote" machine (oups i pressed delete ... no matter the vote was for the others candidate)

His "decision" are dictated to him by the real people in charge of this mess called USA

I have updated the page with the latest information..


.. like in Bali? First a very small bomb (detonated by real islamist extrememists (covertly helped along by CIA/Mossad/Mi6/ISI) and then a HUGE BOMB (from the air, hence the crater?)

also, please help to identify the MEASURING DEVICE. Is the long vertical cylinder a geiger counter to measure radio-activity?

I captured it from the CNN video, but saw on another TV channel how the instrument was carried around inside the crater...

greetings from your alternative-news-lady,

You're right. I wasn't sure how to spell Dick Cheney. (I think I got it right)
George is for sure reading children books at a local school somewhere.

On a more serious note. We'll never know who's behind running the US realy. And I might be wrong that it was the US. But I had the urge to say that there is this possibility. Time will tell. But I am sure the first to come forward is some islamic group. Again, who paid them ?

I'll keep a close tab on this thread.

Look for RADIATION DOSIMETER BADGE too ! you have to wear one when you work on supposed radioactive environment , if we see someone with dosimeter on picture we know what they search for




No trace of that long tubes

ALPHA RADIATION (clean mini nuclear bomb ?)

Is it possible to get the full blast power without that annoying radiation / contamination effect ?

air. Alpha particles will loose all their energy in just a couple inches of travel in air. Once an alpha particle is stopped, it grabs the first two free electrons it can find, and becomes a plain old atom of helium. Alpha radiation is not hazardous if the source is external to the body. Alpha particles don't penetrate deeply enough into the body to reach living tissue.

THIS IS NOT A TUBE ! you can see the backgroung in the middle of the 2 tubes and its ending on a white round shaped base

As I said in the other thread, it does not make any sense for the marines to blow up that building. Think about it this way. Why send many marines to do a job? Why not just send one person to plant those explosives. Put the explosives in a suit-case and that is that. I honestly think it was a set-up to push the Pakistani government into hating the US. I think it worked out pretty well.

If the marines did this then they did a poor job. They should have been stealthy to avoid being detected by the enemy.

Certainly looks odd for a surface explosion. Boy, the "terrorists" are getting really good at blowing stuff up!

Maybe the near miss is simply a "warning" that Pakistan better follow the script or face the music. Kinda like the anthrax attacks on key senators and news outlets after 911.
