Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

"A parked camper van exploded in the US city of Nashville, Tennessee, early on Christmas morning, injuring three people and knocking out communications systems across the state.

Possible human remains were later found near the blast site, US media report.

Police believe the powerful blast was caused deliberately."

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

Would it be reasonable to suggest it to be an attack against AT&T for spreading 5G and Gates's chips? Just based on the location and circumstances, that might have been "the logic" of bombers (not that there may be any socially acceptable reasoning behind acts of terror).

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

That same AT&T building also houses the NSA and the CIA. Audio warning 15 minutes prior to reduce civilian casualties. This is an obvious attack against the deep state comms system regardless who it came from, which has not yet been determined.

This is a weird case. A bit like OKC, just the amateur version?

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

It really is needless to speculate with no information. If antifa actually existed, it could be them. Just as likely it was some right wing nutcase.

Witnesses were unable to identify the suspects as they were wearing masks and fleeing the scene 2m apart.

This does not smell amateur, the fact they went after comms suggests this may not be over. The lack of information is information itself. Could this be an inside job? False flag? Or a singular disgrutled nut case? 2020 is literally going out with a bang.

Need to stockpile popcorn for 2021.

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

This seems strange. Oh wait, its a DM article.

"A 29-year-old mother who was given two homes worth $409,000 for free by the man identified as a person of interest in the Nashville Christmas Day bombing has said she had no knowledge of the property exchange, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. Michelle Swing, who lives in Los Angeles, claims she was unaware Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, had signed the $160,000 Bakertown Road property raided on Saturday away to her last month via a quitclaim deed."

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...rticle-9090067

So it seems it was a suicide attack by this guy? Who and what is he?

Interesting thing to note is there is a no fly zone over Nashville until Dec. 30th.

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

Suicide bomb? Sounds strange to me.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55456899

You don't pack a camper van full of explosives just to suicide. More likely it either went off prematurely or they just didn't get out of the way in time.

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

I just read that, according to his neighbors, he was 63-years old, worked with computers and was self-employed. His neighbors recognized the RV in the video as one that had been parked at his home for a long time and then was suddenly no longer there a few weeks prior to the explosion.

Maybe he was just a paranoid schizophrenic or something. I really don't know why some people do what they do. Trying to understand some people's behavior is like trying to smell the number 9.

They're searching his home now, so I'm sure we'll be finding out more about him and his possible motives soon.

Re: Camper van explosion in Nashville - intentional attack

Some reports are suggesting he was anti-5G; hence the AT&T target. Coincidently, or not, his father reported had worked for AT&T in that building.
