Why are terrorists so bad at making bombs?

I mean come on, it is so obvious that terrorists if they wanted to could find much better ways to create terror than they are doing right now. You mean to tell me these so called terrorists can't find better ignitors, or know what fertilizers to use. I have walked in hospitals so many times without any problems, grocery stores with no problems, and the list goes on and on. So terrorists now only use modes of transportation for bombings now?
I don't know about you, but that nonsense bomber in NY was just that, nonsense. To me it seems obvious. They have to create just enough terror to take more liberties away while keeping our economy tinkering along. They cannot let their terrorist plants actually be successful because they don't want the economy to collapse yet. They are just making sure to get enough bang out of their buck, but without the bang it seems.
I think it is funny that they think we should be afraid of suppossed terrorists that don't even use flammable fertilizer or even how to get a better fuse. I find it funny that they expect people to believe this stuff, but even funnier that there is people who really believe it!!!

This is what I've been saying

This is what I've been saying for years. This guy absolutely had no intentions of killing people. Here's why:
1. Fertilizer that doesn't explode.
2. Propane tanks don't explode like the movies. They need oxygen, as they're in liquid state, to ignite.
3. Gas cans don't explode either. Try dropping a match into a bucket of gas, it'll just go out.
4. The guy was trying to light it with cheezy firecrackers.
5. Driving a car to the busiest intersection in the world, doesn't make sense, so likely to be caught.

So this guy in every sense, failed to meet his "goal." If you're goal is to kill a whole bunch of people and you go to the extent of purchasing all of these materials, and you're life will be over as you know it, you make damn sure you pull an attack off right. The guy could have went to Home Depot 15 mins before the attack to but this crap, someone who is basically making the decision to end their own life makes damn sure they do the most damage possible and do it right.

Look how terrorist attacks go in other countries

Look how good the CIA, ummm terrorist do there.

It's not

an accident

Totally agree w/ your assessment tog w/ one addition

If there was loss of life, the more loss the more likely, there would be a demand for an independent "Commission" investigation. Not that independent commissions are much of a threat for getting to the bottom of things but they are more problematic than this situation-no one killed authorities feed press releases to lapdog press.

They already have their loss of life thing; now they get almost as much bang w/ no messy bang and not much messy snooping.

I mean to rout you out!

-Just because you are among us, does not make you with us

-The door is wide open, anything can slither in

I thought this was a knock knock joke of some sort.

I get the idea though. You would assume a "terrorist" knows how to terrorize. I mean most murders know how to murder right? And most convicts know how to be convicted.

my first thought too

Although my first thought was, didnt mythbusters do an entire episode (and pointed out on many episodes) that gasoline has got to be vaporized before it will blow up

the problem with the absence of creativity argument

is that you might give them ideas.

But I 100% agree. This was my first thought, too.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

People smart enough to build

People smart enough to build decent bombs, are probably also smart enough to realize blowing up Times Square isn't exactly the way to make the world a better place.

Any movement whose every goal is purely idiotic, is highly likely to be getting their recruits from the ranks of idiots.


Funny though, most people just ignore the logic (or lack of logic) for the lame attempts of "so-called" terrorists.

Nothing to see here, keep watching, borrowing, purchasing, consuming...

I would not touch this

With a ten foot pole,Three red flag words in one statement.Nope.If they were not watching they are now.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Wondered about that myself

What are they learning in all those terrorist training camps???

and if the media wouldn't

and if the media wouldn't push this BS like crazy, these incidents would only be short notes.

the US media is really the worse fascist bullcrap ever.

not to condone violence...

This has always bothered me, too. It makes the war on terror seem so blatantly staged and fraudulent.

If an angry person had the actual motive to create terror, and they were willing to die in the process, they could easily achieve that goal with sticks and stones.

1. a knife in a crowded elevator
2. a baseball bat in a nursery school
3. a pistol in a movie theater
