The idea was put out by the FBI wednesday that they were going to blame 'right wing' gun loving types and, the 'explosive' they used in the pressure cookers were gun or black powder'. The same stuff you get for 'reloading' your gun ammo. There is one problem with using this as bomb making material.
1.) Reloading black gun powder IS NOT AN EXPLOSIVE IT'S A PROPELLENT.
Many people are concerned with the dangers of handling and loading modern smokeless
powders.To the uninitiated, gun powder is often regarded as “explosive” - something to be
feared as much as dynamite. This is a natural but erroneous presumption.
The various modern powders used in reloading are classified as propellents, which means
they are chemical mixtures designed to burn under controlled conditions, and to propel a shot
charge or projectile. A high explosive, on the other hand, is a completely different breed of
cat. These mixtures are quite dangerous because they are designed to detonate. When a sub-
stance such as dynamite or blasting gelatin is detonated, it produces intense heat and violent
2,) You can see the shock wave about to occur in the blast still image above. It's the KNOT in between the 'two bows' in the blast. One 'bow' with flames and the other side of the 'tie' the fames not seen but just smoke (the other bow).
See video below of high explosive shock wave generated by 100 ton TNT high explosive blast. It's generates a similar shock wave from it's center obviously this on a much larger scale than in Boston.
3.) You would need a whole lot more black powder to generate the kind of explosion, IN SCALE, you saw in Boston, I mean a whole lot more, than what you can put in a pressure cooker. As big of a flaw in the FBI's black powder pressure cooker bomb theory, the massive amount of black powder it would take to achieve the same scale of explosion, is not even the FBI's biggest flaw in this pressure cooker theory.
4.) Look at the 45 degree angle of the blast!! YOU CAN EVEN SEE IT because the picture was snapped just at the right time! This is a CLASSIC SIGNATURE OF A DIRECTIONAL HIGH EXPLOSIVE DEVICE. This explosive was DESIGNED TO 'DIRECT' ALL IT'S SHRAPNEL TO THE STREET.
5.)WHERE IS THE BOMB DAMAGE TO THE BRICK AND STONE?
f the bomb is as they say "A PRESSURE COOKER USING BLACK POWDER" ball bearings and nails, some would be imbedded and or damage brick and stone. BECAUSE YOU CAN'T CONTROL THE DIRECTION OF THE BLAST WITH THAT TYPE OF EXPLOSIVE. IT IS NOT EVEN IN THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY!
Witnesses AND THE MSM were all emphatic that the blast WAS CONTROLLED meaning that (according to THEM), all of the material went into the direction of the street AND that the shrapnel was all at waist level down. Nobody took a direct shot of shrapnel in the chest or face. This is called a 'signature' type of explosion.
6,) The explosive devices used at the Boston Marathon are highly engineered and would NOT handled by the two russian brothers. They are handled ROUTINELY BY THESE GUYS
Here is the explosive technology most likely used in Boston
M18 Claymore mine
The M18A1 Claymore is a directional anti-personnel mine used by the U.S. military. Its inventor, Norman MacLeod, named the mine after a large Scottish medieval sword. Unlike a conventional land mine, the Claymore is command-detonated and directional, meaning it is fired by remote-control and shoots a pattern of metal balls into the kill zone like a shotgun.
I'm not saying the bombs were specifically a claymore. I'm saying that the Boston explosives were high explosives with 'specific' directional capabilities.
