SAN FRANCISCO - About 100 people were evacuated from a busy, four-block area after an employee found a homemade bomb in the bathroom of a Starbucks. No one was injured.
The device, which was found around 1:15 p.m. Monday, was disabled an hour later. Residents were allowed back into the building and police reopened the street around the store.
"This was a good device. If it had exploded, it would have caused injuries or damage," said Sgt. Neville Gittens.
He would not disclose the size or type of device found, or its potential explosive capacity. But, he added, "we have some very active leads that we're following up."
Why isn't this happening more often? These terrorists are either pitifully incompetent, or unimaginative (or both) -- or seriously unmotivated. What -- one big score and you're done? ...
My first theory is the terrorists' aforementioned incompetence/lack of imagination or absence of further ambitions to live up to their name.
My second theory is even less plausible: that the Bush Administration's Homeland Security measures have actually foiled any further attempts to wreak havoc on the U.S. Talk about a risible scenario. The Gang That Couldn't Shoot ANYTHING Straight (including, in many instances, their own purportedly heterosexual semen), the dipshits Robert McNamara thinks of when he looks in the mirror and mutters to himself, “Thank God I drew LBJ and Nixon,” –- THESE fucktards have saved inumerable American lives through the judicious and expert application of methods and tools of the... Homeland Security Department???
You see my dilemma.. I am bereft of the mental acuity necessitated to conceptualise an alternative scenario to the terrorists being slackers or the Bush Administration being competent… why, pray tell, am I able to spitball thirteen ways till Sunday when it comes to hypothesizing virtually limitless ways to terrorise an entire country, were I so inclined. Which, dear readers, I am not...
I can’t be the only one wondering about the total inaction – on THESE shores, at least -- of Osama and his al Qaedan Merry Band of al Would-Be Cavorters in the Garden of Paradise with 72 Virgins. What’s the deal?
