A used, banged-up AT-4 rocket launcher was discovered near some railroad tracks. I’m surprised this isn’t getting more coverage. Airborne Combat Engineer writes
A dry-run test of how to sneak such weapons past the turnstiles and MARTA Police, perhaps?
MARTA is the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. ACE discusses some grim possibilities for bad guys with rocket launchers involving Atlanta trains.
Is it possible that it fell off a train car loaded with waste from an Army base? This just isn’t the sort of junk that you find laying around. Not to sound alarmist, but this could be huge.
I’d suggest that the last thing the bad guys really want to do, however, is to piss off Americans. Most seem to have more-or-less “gotten over” 9/11 and aren’t interested in considering Iraq to be part of the War on Terror. Why would they want to mess with the current equilibrium?
Of course, why would they want to release the Nick Berg video?
