I tend to jump all over these false flag attacks as of late. I admit I do not believe the OS for 911, how ever I'm not sure this is quite on the
level of a false flag attack.
A pressure cooker is actually an easy to acquire, ready to use explosive vessel. It's intended to hold pressure in, how ever if it's max load is
exceeded it can fail catastrophically. Putting black powder in this vessel is enough to exceed it's maximum pressure load, how ever at the same time
a far superior casing than paper, cardboard, or a pipe put together in a shop.
The longer the container resists the expansion of the powder the more powerful the resulting blast will be.
If you put a pile of gunpowder on the ground and light it, it goes woof. If you used a paper or cardboard tube it goes bang, but does not produce as
large of a concussive shock wave as say a steel pipe capped on both ends.
A steel pipe capped on both ends will fail sooner than a pressure cooker, and you have to assemble it just right so one of the caps doesn't just blow
off. I know this is sort of a weird spin on things, but it's a very effective means of building an explosive device and you can find old steel
pressure cookers in thrift shops for a few bucks. You can buy black powder or smokeless powder at many fire arms dealers/sporting goods stores, and if
you wanted to increase your bang you could use ANFO which is really not that hard to make, or acquire the quantities to fill a few pressure cookers.
Another interesting property to this format is the lid would most likely fail first, making it more a rudimentary directional claymore mine. Enough
delay is provided to allow efficient detonation of the explosive, and releasing devastating results.
Disgusting in all regards, but definitely not complicated in any regard. I'm still waiting to hear about how the devices were set off.
I'm still not convinced this is a false flag attack. I do not see where additional rights will be infringed. If they start to talk about eliminating
to right to public assembly, or additional attacks spring up in the next few days resulting in a state of emergency. I don't see it.
This was a charity event, there were runners from all over north america, and outside north america as well.
It stinks of home grown, and I'm really curious to see who is responsible.
