The Newest Trend In Terrorism: IEDs On Inflatable Boats
That's right folks, terrorists have finally conquered their fear of water and, are going higher-than-before tech with their IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices). The Danger Room along with Ares reported that Gadhafi loyalists sent two RHIBs towards NATO forces early Monday morning, one of which was filled explosives.
The way the story goes is that early Monday morning Allied warships around the port of Misrata saw two RHIBs heading in and, moved to investigate, at that point on of the inflatables turned around went for home. When the NATO warships came up to the inflatable boat, a bomb team found about a ton of high explosives along a couple of human mannequins.
With NATO and the Rebels putting an ever increasing squeeze on Gadhafi it will be interesting to see what tactics Gadhafi uses to hold on to power.
