NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - The FBI is investigating an explosion at a power plant in southern Arizona caused by a makeshift bomb.

Nogales police say the explosion Wednesday morning at the UniSource Energy Services Valencia Plant ruptured a diesel storage tank and caused a small spill, but the fuel didn’t ignite.

Authorities say there were no reported injuries and they’re still looking for suspects and any witnesses to the explosion which occurred around 9:30 a.m.

We definitely need to have “universal background checks” for bomb owners.

The FBI doesn’t have time for this! They’ve got to check out those conservative groups from that list the IRS sent them.

Red Dawn (1984) Transcript:

Col. Andy Tanner: [Describing the invasion] West Coast. East Coast. Down here is Mexico. First wave of the attack came in disguised as commercial charter flights same way they did in Afghanistan in ‘80. Only they were crack Airborne outfits. Now they took these passes in the Rockies.

Jed Eckert: So that’s what hit Calumet.

Col. Andy Tanner: I guess so. They coordinated with selective nuke strikes and the missiles were a helluva lot more accurate than we thought. They took out the silos here in the Dakotas, key points of communication.

Darryl Bates: Like what?

Col. Andy Tanner: Oh, like Omaha, Washington, Kansas City.
Darryl Bates: Gone?

Col. Andy Tanner: Yeah. That’s right. Infiltrators came up illegal from Mexico. Cubans mostly. They managed to infiltrate SAC bases in the Midwest, several down in Texas and wreaked a helluva lot of havoc, I’m here to tell you. They opened up the door down here, and the whole Cuban & Nicaraguan armies come walking right through, rolled right up here through the Great Plains.

Robert: How far did they get?

Col. Andy Tanner: Cheyenne, across to Kansas. We held them at the Rockies and the Mississippi. Anyway, the Russians reinforced with 60 divisions. Sent three whole army groups across the Bering Strait into Alaska, cut the pipeline, came across Canada to link up here in the middle, but we stopped their butt cold. The lines have pretty much stabilized now.
Robert: What about Europe?

Col. Andy Tanner: I guess they figured twice in one century was enough. They’re sitting this one out. All except England, and they won’t last very long.

If it was on a timer, it might have been left by those two unfocused, murderous nuts that self-destructed in Las Vegas.

Diesel will not burn or explode at room temperature in air. That was fortunate.

Isn't there a term of art that Lefty and his running buddies use for a 'makeshift bomb'? Some kind of acronym?

I really would like your thoughts on this event.

Unless you say 'cut the red wire first'.... I was a zoomie, and my reflex is to stand off and nuke it...

IED, improvised explosive device
VBIED, vehicle borne improvised explosive device
IND, improvised nuclear device
RDD, radioactive dispersal device
Boobytrap,, not necessarily limited to explosives

Those are the basics.....

I was worried about this when the Vegas ambush hit the news.

Things might be interesting soon. Honestly, right now I hope it is an angry ex employee.

First of all, what is a “makeshift” bomb? Is that any different from a REAL bomb?

Just curious.
