Fertilizer Bomb (1995)


(1995)Shuldig,  1995,  bombing, Oklahoma, Norway,   Oslo, Terrorism,: a Dry Bones cartoon
Today's Golden Odie cartoon is from 1995.

The sixteen year-old cartoon was about the terrible Oklahoma City Bombing in which Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people and injured more than 680 others by setting off a fertilizer bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Building.

I posted the cartoon today because of the terrible bombing in Oslo that is in the News.

According to reports out of Norway:

Calls to regulate fertilizer after bomb

July 25, 2011
"Calls for stronger regulation of the sale of ammonium nitrate fertilizers have been made following the suspected use of the materials in the bombing of Oslo on Friday July 22 - with experts suggesting that new EU regulations set to be introduced in Norway are not enough.

Commercially-produced ANFO is used as explosives by mining firms and other enterprises. Anders Behring Breivik is alleged to have produced his own ANFO explosives from fertilizers.

The alleged perpetrator of the bombings and the subsequent shootings on Ut√łya island, Anders Behring Breivik, is known to have obtained large quantities of fertilizer through an unincorporated firm he founded in 2009 called Breivik Geofarm, which he claimed would cultivate and sell vegetables and fruits." -more
