It was a terrorist attack after all!
Holy Crap, I hate it when I am right: Two Canadian women peacekeepers were wounded in a bomb blast in Egypt's Sinai peninsula that officials described as a terrorist attack. "Terrorists planted two gas canisters on the road and linked them to an electrical wire. They hid in nearby apricot groves and blew them up," North Sinai governor Ahmed Abdel Hamid told reporters. The incident occurred on road about 25 kilometres (15 miles) west of the Gaza Strip, where Israeli on Monday began its historic operation to pull out from the occupied territory. Hamid said only one of the bombs exploded and that the other was being examined by ordnance experts, adding that two female Canadian peacekeepers from the Multinational Force and Observers were lightly wounded. He added that several Bedouin in the area had been arrested. A senior Egyptian security official confirmed the circumstances of the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. So, now we know 2 things: 1) the 2 canadians that were wounded were women; and 2) That whole "It was a landmine" thing was just the government trying to cover its own ass by lying, again. This is disconcerning, cause I was just making the Iraq analogy in my previou spost and now we have ourselves a "roadside bomb" like the ones they use to attack US convoys over there. Our first IED attack ladies and gentlemen, and many are sure to follow. Oh Joy!
