    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A bomb is nothing more than combustion under pressure. A 40lb propane tank is a bomb big enough to level a decent sized house.

    Very simple. You take something that combusts, put it into a box, light it, and run.

    I once said bomb at an air port.


    On a serious note, someone trying to get an actual bomb onto a plane isn't going to have it in plain sight.

    Even if it wasn't an explosive device, you would think that people would have the brains to not bring such things to the airport or on the plane with them. They should be charged for being idiots and holding up everyone else at the very least . . . if it isn't a real device that is.

    Yeah, tons of people trying to walk into airports with 20kg propane tanks.

    I may be wrong.

    My only point is, bombs aren't complicated.
