Vehicle Overrun

The Week (1.27.12)
________________

Last week, somebody on a motorcycle stuck a magnetic bomb to a car carrying Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, deputy director of Iran’s Natanz uranium-enrichment plant, killing him using Euroterror tactics.

The vehicle overrun depicted on The Week's cover is reminiscent of the tactics of Spanish and Italian groups ("A Death in Tehran: Is it moral to kill Iran's scientists?"). The Greeks also used it, with a slight variation. Nothing is new under the sun.


This was not a Tallahassee drive-by by T-Pain. Whoever committed the act is expropriating techniques from the terrorist handbook. The reason is because they are effective, cost-efficient and easy.

As David Frum
(TheDailyBeast.com) points out, both the U.S. and Israel have denied a part in the bombing; both he and Jonathan Tobin (CommentaryMagazine.com) suggest that targeting specific players may be the least deadly of all the potentially deadly options.

But if the U.S. condemns terrorism, we should not behave as enthralled masses at a Roman circus applauding this criminal violence. One cannot condemn terrorism while cheering on the use of terror tactics.

Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y? It starts with a "U", and it has an "S" in there somewhere.

Juan,
we love to militarize the terror threat.
look at the vehicle over run--it has nothing military in it's concept.
there is NO EQUIVALENT military counterpart. if there is then pls. advise me.
this is mafia style stuff.
a magnet isn't even needed for the bomb. in the old days an addida bag was the carrier of choice as it could be chucked on a car roof and it's rubber bushings on the bottom kept it from slipping off the roof.
the bomb then launched the target thru the floorboards. this was effective even on armored sedans.
and it was cheap.
cheaper than 66 cruise missiles that clinton once fired as a salvo against ubl.my source is woodwards book-bush at war.
btw- as a gunman i always wondered why the over run people just didn't shoot the target . why the bomb?
answer-it's dramatic and reaches the target which is beyond the confines of the vehicle.
this is your 1st NY comment , therefore-HNY.
