THE TWO car bombs discovered in London and the third used to attack an airport terminal in Glasgow on 29 and 30 June serve as a reminder that even amateur terrorists can potentially cause death and disruption. Descriptions of these bombs focus on their potential deadliness as well as their amateurish construction. Such descriptions illustrate why so many terrorist organizations have been able to use car bombs: they can be both technologically uncomplicated and effective at the same time.
