Another Massive Car Bomb Found In Turkey

Published by at 9:38 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

Just earlier this week Turkish authorities detected a massive car bomb in the capitol of Ankara. It is now being reported that just yesterday a second massive car bomb was intercepted, which apparently began its journey in Sweden:

Late Thursday, security authorities announced they had intercepted a van carrying up to 500 kilograms of explosives on the road to Ankara. The van, which was registered in Germany, had crossed into Turkey via the Kapikule border gate with Bulgaria.

Bulgarian customs officials had tipped off Turkish security that the van appeared to be suspicious, and it was later stopped before it reached its destination.

Reports say that four persons, including two Turkish nationals, were detained by security forces. It is believed that the van had travelled from Sweden.

This bomb was nearly twice the size in kg as the one found Tuesday (not sure of the explosive yield between the two). Clearly there are efforts out there to begin a string of bomb attacks on the West. Thankfully we are stopping many of these efforts – but can we stop them all?

    This is why I read your blog rather than watch the news. How many news programs have discussed these foiled attacks?

    Thanks for that, it appears my Grandpa’s old homeland isn’t what it used to be — although they continue to be “industrious”!

    How many more attacks have to be stopped before the libs realize there is a GWOT after all? Do they think Bush has that much influence in other countries that he can manufacture these plots?
