That bomb is no joke. It's meant to cut down on civilian casualties because it doesn't have explosives. It looks like the car in question blew up anyway.

I guess the dead-man switch of the bomber's vest lived up to it's name.

Here's a Military Times article describing this unique bomb in some detail, too.

nah,  the structure is bent inwards.  It was smashed and then the rocket and car fuel caught fire.

My innate cynicism says this probably worked right maybe once, and as to using it on a truck bomb? WTF. Use a bomb that doesn't explode on a target that does?

I don't think the entire product line is good, but the Ginsu Chikara kitchen set was a Consumer Reports best buy. I've had mine for 8 years and they are holding up fine, other than a broken handle on the shears.

Idk, but cutco is pretty terrible except for scissors. However, if you must, you used to be able to buy used ones on EBay and use the lifetime guarantee to get new ones. I think they stopped that a few years back though.

Well, maybe if those little scamps stopped letting terror groups launch their attacks against us from their country we wouldnt have to come over there and hassle them.

That was the first airstrike. Seven children murdered.

(CNN)Ten members of one family -- including seven children -- were killed in a US drone strike targeting a vehicle in a residential neighborhood of Kabul, a relative of the dead told CNN.

No. The Ginsu slashed two terrorists. A separate thing hit the bomb which was in a residential area. What bombers were doing outside an industrial area, we'll never know. Obviously zoning laws need to be changed.

As I observed in the red-lit thread on this, this thing was designed by every 10 year old boy ever.

"And then, I'm gonna fire a missile, but it's not gonna explode!  It's a ninja.  Knives are gonna pop out, and its gonna cut you with the knives! It'll be awesome."
 
2021-08-30 4:24:40 PM  
Is this the attack that ended up not hitting anyone of military value but instead a bunch of civilians?

This particular one is (relatively) good because it should cut down on civilian casualties.

Why would the bomb go off there? They aren't even sure if it was a VBIED or a suicide vest. 

Neither should have been armed. It hit right outside a home.

Either it's an imminent threat or it isn't and those streets looked packed.

Arkanaut: That sounds like some Swat Kats shiat.


I use Swat Kats as my go to for weird obsessive people on wikipedia.

I don't know how i stumbled upon it, i vaguely remember the show, but it has, an incredibly detailed and well curated wikipedia page for a forgettable show that had 2 dozen (as learned from the wikipedia page) episodes in the mid 90s, in a sea of similar shows, some with even crazier ideas.

But man people put effort into maintaining that page, and update it frequently (like, what new can be discovered about this show at this point?). Then you start looking into who is updating it and other shiat they are contributing too.

And you would expect it would be all cheasy cartoons or shiat, but no there is the dude who clarified the spelling on whatever their farking jet was called correcting the year Gaudi decided to be a vegetarian or some shiat.

Anyway, swat kats hurts my mind every time i think of it.

The problem with The Clapper Bomb is that every time it goes off, so do all the lights. Then you have to clap to turn them back on.

Lots of stuff in a car can burn pretty easily, especially if its in contact with metal that just cut through metal at what we assume is a very high speed.

Ok, fire a million of these at all the terrorist camps and known hidouts.  Make a chopped salad out of their camps.  Millions of bladed weapons just food processing whole taliban units.  Make it so their allies find their mince meat guts spread across the desert.  So the vultures have a feast.  Don't save these just for retaliation.  Make it standard to mince cut all taliban and isis.

I want to see a fleet of these sweeping across the desert, spraying up a rooster tail of dust, and then a whole camp just being shredded to pieces like the scene in Jurrasic park 3 (?) where the raptors took out all the people in the grass.  No explosions, just bits of taliban and taliblood spraying up into the night sky.
