I heard you were all descended from Kurds.
Williams, who lives in a loft apartment on the third floor of the restaurant building, said she heard the sound of loud, rapid-fire gunshots at about 4:30 a.m. After multiple rounds of gunshot sounds, Williams said she called 911. Then, she said, she heard a repeated warning she said came from the RV parked outside her building.
“Evacuate now. There is a bomb. A bomb is in this vehicle and will explode,” she remembers the recorded warning saying. Then, she said, the voice started a 15-minute countdown.
Well, presumably they didn't want to kill many people, hence the warning. Which is what makes this unique among bombings, in my mind. Whoever heard of someone planting a bomb in an urban area but not wanting to hurt people with it? Unless the warning was intended as psychological warfare, to make people afraid before the bomb went off.Very poorly timed if they wanted to kill many people.
The IRA used to warn about bombings all the time, it was almost standard protocol for them. The aim of terror bombings is usually a show of force against the government or to radicalise people, not to actually kill them. A lot of Americans in the wake of Niney Leaven had this idea that Bin Laden himself wanted to kill them all, or punish them for being infidels or whatever other egoistic nonsense, but really the deaths are just part of a calculated strategic spectacle. Nai ni lefen was actually a failure in the eyes of most islamic extremists because they killed too many people and the spectacle was too large, leading to a military response which basically destroyed them, which is why they now promote comparatively tiny knife attacks by random lunatics.Well, presumably they didn't want to kill many people, hence the warning.

This isn't US politics. There is no such thing as Rutte "winning over Wilders". Wilders is, has always been and will forever be irrelevant. His is a fringe party in a system of a dozen parties that have to form coalitions to govern. The only thing he can do is being an opposition party loudmouth.In 2017 Rutte won over Geert Wilders
Imagine being afraid of Wilders "winning Dutch elections" (or whatever you guys think he is up to)and I think we all breathed a sigh of relief.
