My name is Edgar J. Steele. This is a Nickel Rant.
Muslims were planning to blow up a bunch of jetliners enroute from London to
America - or so say George Bush and Tony Blair.
Muslims without tickets.
Muslims without passports.
Muslims without bombs.
Muslims without a clue ... and they aren't the only ones, it turns out. Without
a clue, that is.
What kind of bombs? TATP bombs, short for triacetone triperoxide. What's more,
Bush and Blair told us that Muslims favor the TATP bomb, mixed on the spot with
separate liquids. With that lie, both Bush and Blair foreclosed any possibility
that the Muslims involved actually were guilty. With that lie, both Bush and
Blair disclosed themselves for the treasonous, lying criminals that they are.
Why? Glad you asked.
To Build the Impossible Bomb
You see ... it can't be done. It quite simply cannot be done. Not in
any airplane toilet. Not with any resources that might be available aboard any
airplane other than Tom Swift's Flying Lab. Not with the time afforded by a
Trans-Atlantic flight. And certainly - not by anybody without chemistry lab
training and experience - not under the circumstances claimed, anyway.
If Muslims favor TATP bombs - and there is evidence to support the claim that
Muslims use TATP bombs - then Muslims who might do so know full well the limitations
and hazards inherent to such an explosive. No Muslim in his right mind would
attempt what has been claimed, because he would know it can't be done - and,
believe me, doing it under any circumstances would require a Muslim in his right
mind. At best, the guy simply would kill himself, and do little damage to the
plane's toilet. Regardless, nobody would be allowed the opportunity to spend
hours in the toilet ... not aboard a jetliner. In a moment, I will prove to
you why TATP simply cannot be made aboard jetliners, but first, please be really
clear about the significance of that fact: that it conclusively proves Bush
and Blair to be lying weasels. Not just dumb. Not just stupid. Lying, treasonous,
unforgivable, murdering bastards.
TATP or Not TATP? - That is the Question
A friend with a doctorate in chemistry sent me the following:
"According to the official government story, TATP (triacetone triperoxide)
was the explosive these conspirators were planning to manufacture aboard the
"This story is not plausible for a number of reasons, but let's take
a quick look at just enough of the science so as not to provide anybody with
a guide to making an actual bomb: TATP is made from hydrogen peroxide solution,
acetone and sulfuric acid. The reaction can be carried out with just about
any concentration, but is best done with concentrated solutions of both peroxide
"The peroxide and acetone can be pre-mixed, but the acid must be added,
a drop at a time, to the solution, all the while continuously stirring it
and keeping it continuously chilled. This step of the process will take several
hours, during which the fumes given off will be substantial and quite overpowering,
thus a lab-quality air evacuation system is required. (ES: right here, the
whole idea of a TATP bomb becomes ludicrous. Difficult in a lab, but impossible
in an airplane due to the environment - the toilet - and the time requirement.)
"One then must let the resulting solution stand for an extended period
at temperatures above the freezing point, but definitely below 10 Celsius
(50 Fahrenheit). Above 10 Celsius, the TATP does not form; instead, diperoxide
forms, which is so unstable it cannot be worked with. The time required for
the reaction to go to completion is at least 24 hours and often several days.
"Once the TATP forms, it crystallizes as snowflakes from the solution
and must be harvested by filtration and the liquid discarded. The TATP then
is dried and carefully stored until needed. It must be stored below 10 Celsius
or it converts spontaneously to the unstable diperoxide.
"There is neither the time, the workspace nor the other materials required
to make TATP on an airliner. The time required, the temperatures required,
the workspace required and the need to dry the chemical prior to use preclude
this story being reasonable. This chemical process is much more sensitive
than making, for example, nitroglycerin."
The technically proficient reading this will recognize that a necessary step
has been omitted and some others have been altered in critical ways. None of
these purposeful camouflages alter the ingredients or the time, care and equipment
required. Nor will I describe how TATP can be fabricated beforehand and then
detonated aboard an airliner in flight. After all, though we want to demonstrate
the impossibility of what has been claimed, we don't want anybody actually trying
this at home - and there really are some genuine whack jobs out there. After
all, we elect some of them to public office.
An excellent (and humorous) on-line discussion by British writer Thomas Greene,
also as to why TATP simply cannot be made aboard a plane: "Mass
murder in the skies: was the plot feasible?" Mr. Greene agrees with
my friend, the PhD in chemistry, and concludes his description of the process
of creating TATP with: "So the fabled binary liquid explosive - that is,
the sudden mixing of hydrogen peroxide and acetone with sulfuric acid to create
a plane-killing explosion, is out of the question."
So it's impossible to make TATP as claimed, yet still they confiscate liquids
from us, including sodas and baby formula, not to mention toothpaste and, even,
lipsticks? Even if possible to make TATP as claimed, the individual smells of
peroxide, acetone and sulfuric acid are obvious enough to preclude people having
to be shaken down and terrorized by the airport Gestapo in this fashion. You
have to wonder: Just exactly what is going on?
Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them
Incidentally, British officials often claim that the "London 7/7"
train/bus bombings, without any proof whatsoever, were done by Muslims with
TATP in their backpacks. Those explosions, per eyewitnesses, came from beneath
the floors, where the explosive had to have been placed earlier, then detonated
either remotely or via timer. And Blair fed Bush some of the lies he has been
caught out in by so many. Need any more proof that Blair is a liar, as well?
Did you know that, with a huge and increasingly restless Muslim population
in England, only 12% of all British Muslims arrested on terror charges ever
end up being charged with a crime, while only
2% get convicted, almost always of something minor and never of anything
related to terrorism? You heard about the arrests, though, didn't you? Why the
difference? Because the war on terror quite simply is a war on us, not on Muslims.
In the government's eyes, we are the terrorists. In the memorable words
of my buddy, Al: "The Patriot Act - so named because it was designed to
find and eliminate Patriots before they expose how corrupt our government has
become." Why does government fear us so? What does it know that we do not?
In other words, exactly what is it that our government officials intend to do
to us, such that they feel the need to create a police state so as to protect
themselves from us?
