Autobooming in the USA?- That's what FBI chief Robert Mueller's predicting. I agree with Papa Blog that such attacks would be counter-productive, as they would not cause Americans to retreat but would lead the US to parking-lot the next terrorist target of opportunity. I'm not ready to resume atmospheric testing at the Riyadh Testing Range, but an autoboomer on US soil would bring such nuke-the-bleeps emotions to the fore. [Mark Butterworth points out that this is nothing new, as the Cole and 9/11 are examples of autoboomers. However, the vehicle-based examples of truck bombs (Beiruit Marines) , boat bombs (Cole) and de-facto jet bombs (9/11) do more damage than the plastique-in-fannypack autoboomers we've seen in Israel.]
