WASHINGTON –– More than a half-dozen pipe bombs were placed in rural mailboxes in Illinois and Iowa on Friday, and at least two people were injured in explosions, the post office said. None of the injuries was life threatening, postal vice president Azeezaly Jaffer said. The pipe bombs were attached to batteries, he said, and he urged people in the area to call authorities if they find a pipe and battery inside their mailboxes. [i]Jaffer said the bombs were accompanied by a note threatening the government.[/i]

Pretty stupid. If they're going to try to kill someone and leave anti government notes along with the bomb they should at least have the decency to send them to ATF or FBI buildings.

I really don;t care WTF beefs you have with the government. Setting boobytraps, especially lethal boobytraps is TERRORISM, just as much as Muslim suicide bombers and snipers, but with much smaller balls. More f*cking cowards beating their chests and hurting or killing innocent people just because they are pissed off. F*ck 'em and anyone who supports them. And I don't care if they are stupid kids or white seperatists, or what.

Text of Note Left in Mailboxes The Associated Press Friday, May 3, 2002; 6:20 PM Text of note left in mailboxes in the Midwest where pipe bombs were found Friday: Mailboxes are exploding! Why, you ask? Attention people. You do things because you can and want (desire) to If the government controls what you want to do, they control what you can do. If you are under the impression that death exists, and you fear it, you do anything to avoid it. (This is the same way pain operates. Naturally we strive to avoid negative emotion/pain.) You allow yourself to fear death! World authorities allowed, and still allow you to fear death! In avoiding death you are forced to conform, if you fail to conform, you suffer mentally and physically. (Are world powers utilizing the natural survival instinct in a way that allows them to capitalize on the people?) To "live" (avoid death) in this society you are forced to conform/slave away. I'm here to help you realize/ understand that you will live no matter what! It is up to you people to open your hearts and minds. There is no such thing as death. The people I've dismissed from this reality are not at all dead. Conforming to the boundaries, and restrictions imposed by the government only reduces the substance in your lives. When 1% of the nation controls 99% of the nations total wealth, is it a wonder why there are control problems? The United States strives to provide freedom for their people. Do we really have personal freedom? I've lived here for many years, and I see much limitation. Does the definition of freedom include limitation? I've learned about the history of various civilizations in history, and I see more and more limitation. Do you people enjoy this trend of limitation? If not, change it! As long as you are uninformed about death you will continue to say "how high", when the government tells you to "jump". As long as the government is uninformed about death they will continue tell you to "jump" Is the government uninformed about death, or are they pretending? You have been missing how things are, for very long. I'm obtaining your attention in the only way I can. More info is on its way. More "attention getters' are on the way. If I could, I would change only one person, unfortunately the resources are not accessible. It seems killing a single famous person would get the same media attention as killing numerous un-famous humans. There is less risk of being detained, associated with dismissing certain people. Sincerely, Someone Who Cares PS. More info. will be delivered to various locations around the country.

Looks like the gene pool filter needs cleaning again. You have a beef with the government, so you go blow up some mailboxes. Makes sense to me. Next time I buy a car I don't like guess I'll go blow up a few lampshades. [rolleyes]

Ja, I'm getting tired of my job. I think I'll go out tomorrow and run over a bunch of fire hydrants.

Given the phallic nature of the bombs he uses, and the strange fascination with control and power he seems to be striving for, I'd suggest they nickname this guy the "unit-bomber"!

I am not saying It was me or anything, but.. I knew some guys in high school that blew up mailboxes (not postal workers) for fun on a Saturday night. Of course I grew up in TEXAS so it was... well..Normal?

This whole thing sounds damn fishy, especially the way the feds are acting with their "can't we just talk" pleas to the bomber. Very, very strange. My money is that one of their undercover/agent provocateurs who was in the process of setting up a group of "domestic terrorists" screwed up, and the feds are trying to find out what happened to him.

I agree that something is amiss. I am not big on government conspiracies to explain things. But government is big, no one person or group is in control, and in my youth I did see a couple of local cops attempt to create a disturbance at a peaceful outdoor music concert. Those cops would do anythimg then and anything today. LarryG also seems correct about the text seeming to be writen by an alien and in the religious extreme: an Islamic student, maybe.

ive considered using a battery, model rocket engine ignitor and one of those firecrackers you can buy that are strung together in a set of 100. *open mailbox* *POP* *opener jumps 20 feet into the air* and no damage done, just loud sound since that little tin-can mailbox acts as a megaphone/cannon for the sound. [}:)] --Edit-- Note : I would use only one from the pack ,cut it from the rest. not the whole pack (that would be destructive)

A expert(I did'nt catch his name), on CNN (agh bad people), says that the midwest since the 1980's has been a breeding grounds for anti government groups. Well lets see here: 1:Since the 1980's the farmer has been increasingly screwed by the gov. 2:Indians(enough said) I wonder why the midwest is a breeding ground for anti governmetal types?? P.S. i'm from the east..

Just my .02, but can you guess which group of commodities is the only group of commodities that have a Government fixed price for the commodidity? If you guessed 'agriculture foodstuffs', you are correct! Every other example has the prices determined by what the market will bear. The government is setting the prices for the goods produced by America's farmers without regard to what the market dictates. This 'price fixing' by the Federal government has ticked off the farmers for many years. BTW, this began at about the same time as the Marshall Plan and was seen as needed to keep farmers from making 'too much profit' in selling their products to the government to be used to feed the German people, and others at the end of WWII.

Seems to me that the only people stupid enough to belt crap like "99% is controlled by 1%" and "there is no death..." are the radical left-wing, anti-government, socialist, riotous mobs like those in Seattle.
