Blast damages Amsterdam Courthoue


online.wsj.com

AMSTERDAM—An explosion in the early hours of Wednesday morning damaged Amsterdam's court complex, and a government minister swiftly condemned the blast as an attack on the Dutch justice system.

Police were investigating the cause of the 2:30 a.m. blast, which damaged several floors at one of the towers that make up the courthouse. No one was injured.

Word on the grapevine is that they believe it was an RPG-7, fired by two men on a motorcycle. Grapevine is also reporting extensive damage internally despite minor external damage, which would be consistent with the RPG.

The question remains as to why the attack occured. I'm led to believe that there is a trial of a major "crime boss" occuring which may or may not be the reason for the attack. Terrorism is always an option, but there are many angry people in the world without them being terrorists.

I wonder if there is any connection between this and the Somali pirate trials recently?

I could well believe it was gang related. Despite most people thinking Amsterdam is 1) quaint/cute 2) open-minded/relaxed place, there are tons of gangs. It's easy to get a gun (illegal in Europe), obviously drugs are legal and easy to get within reason, prostitutes legal etc. But I know two people in a famous motorcycle gang who openly go around putting hand grenades in trash cans for fun when they're drunk, blowing other things up with pastique/explosives just for fun. I could believe it's just a warning from a gang rather than some bull# false flag gone wrong which I'm sure someone will claim soon enough

Wall Street Journal is a bad source for me.

But this story is all over the news now.

The "crime boss" connection seems the most likely to me.

www.dutchnews.nl...

Just a desperate attempt to have them postpone or move the trial to give them more time to locate and kill the "secret witnesses."

But it's doubtful we will ever know for sure. If the attack has the above effect, though, that would be a good clue!

Nothing like a terrorist attack to get people to do something stupid.

I heard it directly from an associate, I just put in the first news link that google brought up seeing as the BBC was not reporting it at the time.
