no offense to you personally flabama, but i'm calling BS on that. the attack on khobar towers was from a vehicle adjacent
to the building
destroyed, and from the link below you can see the damage:
the main difference, of course, was that this was a fuel truck. however, any explosives expert will tell you that the combination of nitro and
ammonium nitrate will give you a much bigger bang than petrol.
personally, i think the most interesting part of this is the least publicized. just before his execution (and i'm sorry, but i dont seem to be able
to locate the quote...you'll just have to take my word for it), mcveigh is reported as saying something to the effect of "you havent seen the worst
yet...but you will very soon" (and that's from memory, so it's not an exact quote). he was executed in june of 2001......three months before
. that kind of strikes me as rather suspicious.
