    The IRA has a devastating record of building and detonating powerful bombs. What we saw in London was the work of a person or persons with no understanding of how bombs work.

    Because it is fairly easy to acquire the knowledge and resources necessary to construct an efficient explosive device, we can posit that these bombers were acting on the spur of the moment with off-the-shelf materials. That's a safe bet, because a half-hour spent on Google would have led to better design.

    More likely, we have a couple dudes drinking at a bar, chatting and working each other into a state of rage about something or other and deciding to "do something." We'll find out soon, as these clowns won't get far.

    Every day's another chance to stick it to The Man. - dls.
