  •  Maybe, but that would require a certain level of (3+ / 0-)

    sophistication to get the angle right.  In a case like this, where a bomb is left in a crowded area, like a trash can, it is probably a simple explosive packed with shrapnel, like the IRA used in London back in the 1980s.  

    I hate to say it, but I've seen worse carnage, but that was caused by a US air strike on an Iraqi convoy in the Gulf War that I still have nightmares about.

      and still have nightmares, and that was a long, long time ago.  People's willingness to do harm to one another for the sake of a cause or belief system never ceases to sicken me.
