Using a blowtorch to dismantle a bomb?  Good strategy.

"He said workers at the shop were using a blowtorch to take the bomb apart when it exploded Wednesday. "

Why would anyone take a blowtorch to a piece of heavy ordnance?

60,000,000 and they STILL couldn't get all the jews?

Kids these days.  You try to tell them what a real war is like; they are like, whatever.

yep, just about on par with dipping it in gasoline and shooting roman candles at it.

Well, it's "dismantled", isn't it?  That was their goal.

This reminds me of a mishap report I once read when I was in the service.  Two young sailors were scrapping an old acetylene bottle and decided to cut the valve stem off with an oxy-acetylene torch.  Before they got to cutting, one guy determined the bottle was empty by lifting it with one arm while simultaneously lifting another cylinder, known to be empty, with his other arm.  As they "weighed" the same, he deemed the cylinder empty.

Yes, it exploded when they cut it with a torch.  They survived with minor injuries and Darwin had to go looking elsewhere that day.

They have an heavily ingrained wariness, hardly ever leaving their guard down since historically folks have been out to get 'em.

Turns out you 'can't' empty an acetylene bottle.  It's filled with kitty litter (or something) which is then soaked with acetylene.  Even when there's no observable pressure, or the kitty litter is done outgassing, there's still burnable, explode-able, gas in there.
I tried to have a bottle certified empty to move once, and the guy at the AirGas store just laughed at me.

A large bomb?

They couldn't be just a little more specific than that?

Acetylene is so unstable it's unsafe to store it in its pure form, so it's dissolved in liquid acetone and a porous solid material is added.  Reading this reminds me not to be casual when I'm using the stuff.  Sure is fun to use, though.
