Was it an armoured digger?
Police said the bomb went off when an excavator driving a digger drove over it. He injured his hand while the other victims were treated for light injuries and shock.

However the bomb did damage several buildings in the area

550LB I would have thought the digger would have ended up some disatnce away

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.

Yanks late, no never. During two WWs they where too busy cleaning up the world markets of the combatants then working to hard expanding their industry and selling war materialto one or both sides WW I especially.
Late never, just very well prepared to make a killing.

The is an old tale that The Kaiser granted an audience to the visiting Field Marshal Kitchener.
Kitchener told the Kaiser that if Britain and Germany fought then the winner would be The USA.

Were they on the Roundheads side or the Cavaliers? :?
According to some scholars, our own Civil War was actually a continuance of the struggle between the Roundheads and the Cavaliers; another clash between the cultural descendants of the two sides.

So yeah, we were late on that one, too. ;)

BTW, the Roundheads won in our case as well.

So it's true then? In films, it's always depicted that the US 5th Cavaliers turn up just a few moments too late.

Take a look at who originally settled where. Hardcore Puritannicals took over most of New England, and took with them their values, which maintained into the 1860's. You'll recall where American anti-Monarchist sentiment began--the New England states.

Virginia and the Southern colonies were originally settled by cultural descendants of the Monarchists--John Adams had a Hell of a time convincing them to declare independance--and was certainly a society built on the privilege of the aristocracy.

But surely the roles were reversed.
States Rights (The Confederacy)= The Parliamentarians.
The Federal Government (The Union)= The King.
And a 200 year gap, God they knew how to hold a grudge.
That must be the reason for the South banging on about 'The War Between The States', they fought the same people (a few generations removed) twice and lost both Wars.

Nope, the South were the cultural descendants (and literal descendants in much of the case) of the Cavaliers.

Nonsense- that's what The Bush Doctrine is all about.

Go to the back of the class and ask to borrow Sarah Palin's briefing book if/when she's ever finishes with it.
