get on it. Bring them down! Fear is the only weapon these type of assholes and groups have. Fight them tooth and nail. I have nothing but contempt for these type of idiots. Bring it! Oh and yeah, glad no one was hurt by these clowns.

16. From the photo in the link in #6 there is no sign that high-order explosives were used either

 

The damage appears to be just charring, as if from a fireball.

18. Yes, that's why I put the word "either" in my subject line on previous reply

 

I had not yet seen the photo when I speculated about a soda bottle bomb.

25. It's the biggest story to come out of Casa Grande in my memory

 

Made to appear bigger than it probably deserves to be seen as because the target was federal property, which brings in the FBI, BATFE, etc., leading to knee-jerk declarations that it was an act of political terrorism.

It's not terrorism unless the perpetrators make their motives known. In the 1970s the reactionaries would have blamed the Symbionese Liberation Army or the Red Brigades or the Black Panthers. Now they blame right-wingers. SSDD.

14. A terrorist bombing is pointless unless the perpetrators announce who they are and why they did it

 

Where is the claim of responsibility?

It's chickenshit. A prank done by drunks or kids.

7. Wow. I haven't thought about Casa Grande in years

 

In fact, a friend of mine thought about moving there after retirement, but unfortunately he died last month before his dream was realized.

11. The Native American ruin that the town is named after is truly a wonder to see

 

I took a bunch of nice photos of it in the late 1960s.

Not my photo...

20. The teabagger who planted the bomb probably has 348 or so family members who

have collected Social Security benefits (that they PAID FOR) since its inception.

Low-information terrorism: it's the latest trend.

23. I regard "disgruntled former employee" and "kids messing with bomb stuff" as at least equally likely

 

We'll probably know soon.

"...and could make an arrest later Friday."

28. And the suspect, now in custody, is apparently...

...47-year-old Abdullatif Aldosary of Coolidge.



Now for the stereotypical commentary by a neighbor:

"He's pretty quiet. He don't really come out of the house," said neighbor Miguel Pascual.

It was a scene other neighbors tell CBS 5 they had witnessed before. They asked not to be identified.

Court records show Aldosary served prison time in Safford four years ago for aggravated harassment against his then employer Hunter Contracting in Gilbert, and he is currently involved in an assault and disorderly conduct case in Casa Grande.

"I was pretty shocked about it. Around this little town, who knows to expect something like this," said Pascual....

Convicted felon with a history of violence. My comment: Likely mentally ill, a sociopath or a paranoid schizophrenic, angry at the world. I'm glad he was caught so quickly and without incident. Hopefully he'll be put away for the rest of his life.

ETA - And nobody cares about the incident any more. I admit that MY guesses as to the motivation were wrong. Would anyone care to join me?
