A bomb has exploded under a car in County Antrim and a man has been taken to hospital, the police have confirmed.
His condition is not known at this stage.
There is an ongoing security alert at the scene of the explosion on Milltown Road in Randalstown. His partner suffered minor injuries in the attack.
Dissident republicans have been responsible for a spate of bomb attacks across Northern Ireland in the last year. In October, a dissident group planted a bomb under a policeman's car in east Belfast.

the worrying part is that some of the old bomb makers, quartermasters and foot soldiers form the old regimes are coming out of "retirement" to help out

so what IM guessing, these are the home-grown terrorists they have been talking about.
This is an interesting story.
The reason why i asked, because they didn't clearly specify, they were speculating. at least that's what i got from the few lines in the article.

Makes me wonder who was responsible. Muslim extremists, or locals fed up with their police?

So this is all just people who are pissed off at the Gov't and want to change the course of their country to perserve the motherland and what it stands for? If that's the case then I support their CAUSE.

So what is it these people are fighting/terrorizing for? I was always under the impression that it was rooted in British occupation of their land.
So half of Ireland wants the British there and half doesn't? Is that why it's split like Korea? If so, there's always going to be a problem. It may have waves with crests and troughs but it won't ever go away. No occupation is ever settled. All it takes is one person to "not like it.".
