Officials: Bomb Incidents, Bomb-Making Surge...

“A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight against the true Christ, the only Saviour of the world. He will shed much blood and will want to annihilate the worship of God to make himself be looked upon as a God. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879) 

Bomb incidents and bomb-making surge in U.S., officials warn 

Wracked by paranoia, in thrall to various conspiracy theories, Anthony Quinn Warner parked a recreational vehicle in the middle of a Nashville tourist district early last Christmas and set off what authorities say was the biggest vehicle bomb explosion inside the U.S. in 25 years. More than 60 buildings were damaged, including a key AT&T cellphone facility, resulting in service cuts across three states. In part because Warner broadcast a warning before the bomb went off at 1:22 am, he was the only person killed. But it was something of a wake-up call for law enforcement. Among the alarming elements was that a lone disturbed individual was able to build, test and detonate such a large and sophisticated device using materials he purchased in retail stores, much like two anti-government radicals did when they blew up a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995. As part of its response, the Department of Homeland Security has teamed up with the FBI to publicize Operation Flashpoint, the latest version of a longstanding effort by the government to urge local merchants to report suspicious purchases of household materials that can be used to build bombs. It comes as the Department of Justice is reorganizing itself to better fight domestic terrorism. Source
