20+ Killed in Bali Blasts

Israel carried out the October 2002 terror attack in Kuta, Bali, murdering over 200 to ensure Australia would join the coalition of the killing in Iraq. On October 1, 2005, just days after it was suggested that Australia would soon be withdrawing 450 troops, a powerful message was sent to show who's boss - the same as happened on 7/7/05 (London) and 7/23/05 (Sharm al-Sheikh) just after the UK announced plans for a phased withdrawal, and just after British Gas did a deal with Egypt on Palestinian gas that was not sanctioned by the Jewish Mafia. Israel is demanding that Iran be attacked next, under the same lame pretext of "WMDs". Iraq has already been looted and ruined; its main importance now is as a beachhead from which to launch further invasions.

Expect to see the usual nonsense about "Islamic militants" and noises from the Australian Government to indicate that they will "stay the course" in Iraq, after all. Invariably, the "Muslims" are somehow clever enough to prepare highly unstable home-made highly explosive compounds and transport them without blowing themselves up en route, but stupid enough to guarantee never to hit the right target at the right time. Ten out of ten for practical chemistry, but zero for game theory, group dynamics and applied psychology.

The authorities have variously claimed that the attack was carried out by "suicide bombers wearing explosive belts or vests", or alternatively, backpacks. Unfortunately for Zionists, the "suicide bombers" theory has once again been proven to be a total fabrication, concocted for political purposes. Police found three unexploded bombs in Jimbaran, which failed to go off after Bali's mobile phone network had been hastily shut down after the first blasts. Israel's Mossad would use mobile phones to detonate bombs, rather than risk blowing themselves up, or another fiasco like the Lavon Affair. The official theory Mk I has Muslims combining three suicide manually-triggered bombs with three mobile-controlled bombs. Surely sacrificing three of their operatives simply to save the price of three more mobile phones is cutting off their heads to spite their noses?!

After the Indonesian authorities realised the ridiculous nature of their position, a spin operation was conducted to attempt to deny the original reports of unexploded bombs. This was rather like the original reports of Israel's prior knowledge of London 7/7 undergoing Orwellian revision to try and make out they were not warned until "after the first explosion" (which still confirmed their guilt all the same). No matter, the more reliable reports are the original news items before the spin doctors have been able to get to work. The official conspiracy theorist is in an even worse position with the Mk II version, having to claim that the witnesses of unexploded bombs were all hallucinating!

The official story Mk III holds that mobile phones were used to trigger the bombs that were strapped to the "bombers". If - and it's a big if - three individuals were strapped with remotely-controlled explosives, why didn't they just use a rucksack instead, leave it on a chair, and walk away to fight another day? Whether remotely or manually controlled, the movements of the threesome would need to be synchronised for near-simultaneous detonations. The unnecessary sacrifice of the three carriers - possibly tricked into carrying out a "drill" or even a "drugs delivery" (and with payment on completion of the job), or with their families threatened - would suggest that the organisers were not on the same side - e.g. Mossad not Muslim, and that the carriers served the dual purpose of delivering the explosives and propagating the "Muslim suicide bomber" myth.

The Kuta bomb only killed two, possibly including the "bomber" if there was one. Amateur video of this "suspect" shows him going from the crowded area to the uncrowded back of the restaurant before the explosion, consistent with someone duped into carrying a package rather than a terrorist trying to inflict the maximum of casualties. Although Mk III does away with the remote mobiles plus manual suicide detonation inconsistency of Mk I and the empirical evidence dismissal of Mk II, it leaves the Muslim bomber theorist in a still crazier position. Mk III has Muslims needlessly sacrificing their own, unless of course we substitute Israel's operatives sacrificing Muslims.

The decapitations are not proof of suicide bombers; a number of victims' severed limbs and heads were found on the beach. Bombs have a tendency to dismember and scatter body parts of innocent victims. Witnesses reported that many of the dismembered bodies at the scene were of foreigners.

The whole point of the suicide bombing strategy is supposed to be that enemy casualties will be maximised whilst minimising the cost to one's own side. Most victims were locals with at least 14 Indonesians killed and 83 injured. Unlike Indonesia proper which is about 88% Muslim, the island of Bali is 93% Hindu. Even if the bombers were Muslim and not Hindu, it does not make sense to use a suicide bombing strategy that fails to accurately target the arch-enemies of Islam: the big Western powers (countries that are a victim of their own success, having been expropriated by Zionist leeches, with their armies now acting as Israel's proxy army, for example).

A spokesman for the spiritual leader of the group that wants to turn the region into an Islamic state denied that any Muslim would have carried out the bombings.

So we are left with two possible theories.

  1. Mossad places six bombs and controls remotely by mobile phone; three fail to go off because the authorities hastily shut down the mobile network
  2. Mossad places three bombs, uses three duped or coerced Muslims to deliver three further bombs; all controlled by mobile phone but three fail to go off after the mobile network is shut down.

An eyewitness report at Jimbaran Bay provides the final nail in the coffin for the suicide bomber theory and all but eliminates (2) above. The second Jimbaran bomb was seen to have exploded underneath a table.

In fact, theory (2) can be eliminated. Major General Mbai asserted that the bombers' heads were found up to 70 metres away from their legs: "Their faces are normal; their heads have been cut off". This is actually a true statement, albeit misleading. The problems is that the bombers' heads and faces were supposed to have been within a metre of a detonating 10kg TNT shrapnel bomb. Preliminary calculations neglecting air resistance suggest that the overpressure at short range would suffice to propel a head for some 70m. However, all three faces were so well preserved, with no damage from shrapnel or radiant heat from the fireball, that identification would be straightforward. It is not only convenient, it is wildly improbable.

The police chief Pastika and the anti-terror official Mbai were clearly ordered to make it look like a suicide bombing. Three men in custody with normal faces apart from a few bruises where they had been beaten up had their heads cut off, whereupon the heads were "discovered".

And now there is one possible theory:

  1. Mossad places six bombs and controls remotely by mobile phone; three fail to go off because the authorities hastily shut down the mobile network

Revised October 15, 2005


If we imagine a typical head as some 6 ins (width) by 8 ins (height) by 7 ins (depth), and approximated by a sphere of radius 3.5 inches or 0.09 metres, the volume is (4/3)*pi*0.09^3 = 0.003 m^3. Taking the mean density as 1100 kg/m^3, a little above that of water (bone is around 1600 kg/m^3), the mass is 3.3 kg or 7.27 lb. 3.3 kg errs on the low side of estimates for mass of a human head; this helps the case for the suicide bomber theory with a claimed head displacement of up to 70 metres. The bombers were reportedly "slim".

A program that had previously been written for 9/11 analysis was modified, in order to allow input of variable angles from the horizontal as the initial bearing of the detached head. The overpressure from a TNT detonation is considerably greater than for a hydrocarbon deflagration, but of much shorter duration. 3 ms to 10 ms would be typical, and it was decided to assume 0.005 seconds. The duration is clearly low in relation to the total travelling time of several seconds. Since the force of the blast would be very high compared to both gravity and air resistance, it was decided to neglect the latter two during the 5 ms blast period.

The simulation computed the trajectory after allowing for the effects of air resistance and gravity, starting at the end of the blast period. Horizontal and vertical positions and velocities were recalculated at 100 microsecond intervals of simulated time, neglecting wind speed and direction. For drag purposes, the head would present a cross-sectional area of around pi*0.09^2 = 0.025 m^2 or pi*3.5^2 = 38.5 ins^2. The object mass was taken as 3.3 kg, with a 0.025 m^2 cross-section, initial altitude of 5 feet, and drag coefficient of 0.8. The first step was to use the program to determine possible velocities for the head, at the end of the 5 ms overpressure, that would provide for the required horizontal displacement. Then it was a question of whether the bomb could supply the required force, impulse and energy.

At high initial velocities such as 300 mph, the greatest horizontal displacement would occur at an inclination of some 37 degrees off the horizontal. This would be much too fast, with the head landing 474 metres from the take-off point. For low velocities such as 30 mph, the greatest displacement would be at 43 degrees, but at a mere 19 metres. 60 degrees off the horizontal would achieve 72 metres at an initial speed of 70 mph; a steeper ascent at 70 degrees would require 80 mph to travel 68 metres horizontally; and a mere 10 degrees off the vertical would require 120 mph for 73 metres displacement. Some reports quoted much lower than "up to 70 metres", and there may have been some confusion as to whether it was supposed to be yards, metres, or feet. It was decided to assume 80 mph as an estimate of the required initial diagonal speed. This achieved around 38 metres at 80 degrees inclination, or 71 metres at 69 degrees. For the latter inputs of 80 mph and 69 degrees, raising the drag coefficient from 0.8 to to 1.0 lowered the displacement from 70.65 to 67.57 metres. Alternatively, changes in the initial head height were found to have a lesser effect. A lowering from 5 feet to 4 feet brought about a reduction from 70.65 to 70.54 metres.

The required velocity at the start of the deceleration period is 80 mph or 35.76 m/s. With the blast period taken as 0.005 seconds, the required acceleration is 35.76/0.005 = 7,152 m/s^2. The required force is 3.3 kg times 7,152 m/s^2 which is 23,602 newtons or 5,306 pounds force.

Let's suppose the bomber's head presents an area of pi*3.5^2 = 38.5 ins^2 to the explosive forces. An overpressure of some 138 psi for 5 ms would deliver the required accelerating force: 138*38.5 = 5,313 lbf. A mere 1 kg of TNT delivers a peak overpressure of 100 psi and a dynamic pressure of 20 psi at 1 metre separation, so 10 kg of TNT at 0.5 m separation should suffice. The work done in breaking the neck is small in relation to the bomb's total energy output of some 42 MJ, and a force of 5,313 lbf should be sufficient. (The chin and cheeks area prior to detachment is lower than 38.5 ins^2, at around 6 ins by 3 ins which is 18 ins^2. This suggests 295 psi which is plausible at close range given the high strength of the bomb.) Provided the head detaches fairly early on in the 5 ms primary overpressure period, the maximum velocity and final displacement of the detached head should not be significantly reduced.

A TNT detonation generates well over 4,000 psi in close proximity, along with significant radiant heat from the explosion's fireball. Thus, the claimed distance of up to 70 metres of separation between head and legs is feasible. The problem is with the "normal faces" that were all in good enough condition to readily allow visual identification from TV pictures, by casual acquaintances.

If we imagine the shrapnel as propagating from a point source, a bomber's chin and cheeks alone would present an area of some 6 ins by 3 ins which is 18 ins^2. Assuming the source is at a range of 10 ins, the curved surface of a sphere of radius 10 ins is 4*pi*10^2 = 1257 ins^2. If we imagine the shrapnel being sent in all directions in 3-d space, the proportion 18/1257 = 1.43% or 1/70 approximates the proportion of the total shrapnel expected, on average, to impact the lower part of a bomber's face (excluding nose, ears, eye sockets, and lips).

More accurately, the proportion is under 1.43% in this case, since the target area presented is not small in relation to the curved surface of the "sphere". The distortion caused by the flat target area not wrapping around the curved surface of the sphere lowers the proportion of all possible directions in 3-d space emanating from the point source that would impinge on the target area. Calculations for a circle with a radius of 2.394 (providing an area close to 18 as above) at a separation of 10 (length units irrelevant here) place the proportion at 1.37%. More complex computations for a 6 x 3 rectangle at 10 units separation indicate 1.357%. The error is still only 5%. But this is more than balanced out by the fact that in a "suicide explosive vest", explosives and shrapnel would be distributed around a bomber's torso rather than concentrated at a point. If you move some shrapnel in from an initial separation of 10 to a range of 3, and a corresponding amount out to 17 units from the target, 10.242% of the former will hit the target, and 0.486% of the latter will hit, averaging much more than 1.357%. Hence, more shrapnel would hit the bomber's head. At significantly greater range the distortion becomes negligible, and in the example below the error is less than 0.2%. So we shall stick with the area of rectangle over area of sphere approximation, and the original assumption of 1.43% of the shrapnel hitting the bomber's face.

The Jimbaran Bay bombs were reported to have gone off 20 seconds apart. The mother and daughter who ran from their table just before the bomb exploded beneath it did not start running immediately, but were running for seconds before the next blast occurred. Let's suppose they ran at 10 fps which is under 7 mph - they would not have been dawdling in the panic, although the sand would have blunted their speed - and suppose the running duration was just 5 seconds. Hence, the distance travelled was 50 feet. A sphere of radius 50 feet has a curved surface area of 4*pi*600^2 = 4,523,893 ins^2. We'll suppose the area presented by each fleeing body was as high as 16 ins by 66 ins = 1056 ins^2. So the proportion 1056/4,523,893 = 0.0233% = 1/4284 is the mean proportion of the total shrapnel expected to impact each body. Both received shrapnel wounds.

If the shrapnel consisted of only 400 ball bearings, the mean expected quantity to hit each target body would be 400/4284 = 0.0934 pieces. One ball bearing and one body leads to a 1 in 4284 probability of a hit. 4284 missiles and one body yields a possibility of more than one hit, a mean expected total of one hit, and 1-1/e = 0.6321 probability of one or more hits. So 400 missiles and one target results in a little less than 1 in 4284/400 = a little under 1 in 10.71 probability of one or more hits. With 400 missiles and two targets, the probability of at least one hit doubles (almost), to a little under 1 in 5.355. Suppose one (either) target has been hit one or more times. The probability is nearly 1 in 5.355. Now we have 399 (almost) chances to hit the second target, with the second target area being half the area of two targets. The probability of the second hit is now nearly 399/4284 or nearly 1 in 10.74. So the probability for both events - i.e. both targets to be hit - is nearly 1 in (5.355*10.74) = nearly 1 in 57.5. In other words, it probably wouldn't have happened.

If the shrapnel consisted of 4000 ball bearings, there is now a reasonable probability for both targets to be hit at a range of 50 feet. As for each "bomber", their chins, face below cheekbones, ears, nose, eye sockets, back of head, and possibly face depending on gaze are exposed. As calculated above, it would be expected that about 1/70 of the shrapnel (or more if we count the nose, ears, etc, and have the shrapnel distributed right across the chest of an explosive vest - let's stick to 1/70) would hit the exposed area. So this area of each bomber's head would be hit by 4000/70 = 57 pieces of shrapnel, on average. Even at a range of 50 feet, the velocity was sufficient for ball bearings to become lodged in legs, etc. The lighter bearings would be travelling much faster than the head, and would impact as the explosive forces were still working on the electromagnetic bonds to break the neck and then producing a lower acceleration of the head. With the head at 80 mph diagonally and bearing 69 degrees off the horizontal at the start of the deceleration period, the final vertical velocity is 64 mph and the horizontal velocity 22 mph after 6.28 seconds as the head impacts the sand. (The Kuta restaurant bomber's head would have hit the ceiling at almost 80 mph!) Flash burns would result from the fireball, which would be at a temperature of some 3000 C. Do these faces look as if they were within inches of a detonating 10 kg TNT shrapnel bomb?

When all is said and done, the idea that all three bombers' faces would be "normal" and easily recognisable after such trauma is absurd. The combination of pre-planted bombs detonated remotely and suicide bombers was already ludicrous. In such cases, there are usually some interesting calculations that can demonstrate how natural law would require extensive revision in order to render the official conspiracy theorist's crackpot claims possible. One could propose a new physics whereby Muslims' faces are protected by some kind of "force field". Ironically, the more government and mainstream media outlets attempt to promote the concept of the "suicide bomber", the more effectively they demonstrate it to be false.


A steady state hanging does not break the neck. The tensile forces acting upon it are in the region of 150 lbf. Judicial hanging, when designed to hasten progression into unconsciousness and death, involves a long drop with the forced deceleration of the body supplying a transient force capable of severing the spinal cord. When an object experiences a dynamic or transient force, there is an unambiguous measure. The impulse of the force is the change in the object's momentum (delta p), also equal to the product of the object's mass and change in its velocity, and the product of the average force and the time applied. This force-time product indirectly relates to energy or the work done, which is the product of force applied and distance through which the force is applied. So the two measures are related by the ratio distance over time, i.e. the mean velocity of the object throughout its acceleration or deceleration period. Quantifying the force is open to some interpretation, since it is necessary to assume a value for the time or distance of deceleration.

The required drop distance for a long drop hanging was based on the convict's weight minus an allowance for the head, with the product foot-pounds taken as around 1000 to 1300. Suppose a 150 lb body drops a distance of 1100/150 = 7.33 feet. The terminal velocity is given by v=SQR(2*h*g) where h is the drop in feet, g is the gravitational acceleration 32.17 ft/s^2, and v is the terminal velocity in fps. So for h = 7.33, v = 21.72 fps = 6.62 m/s. The impulse of the force is straightforward: it is the product of mass and change in velocity = 68 kg times 6.62 m/s = 450 newton-seconds in SI units = the product of average force and time applied. To convert to pound force-seconds we divide by 4.448, obtaining 101 lbf.s. Or avoiding SI units altogether we would have:

Force (lbf) * time (secs) = mass (lb) * delta velocity (fps) / 32.17

which gives lbf.s = 150*21.72/32.17 = 101.27 lbf.s

Let's suppose the deceleration takes place over a distance of 0.05 m or about 2 inches. The deceleration time is the distance divided by the mean velocity = 0.05/3.31 = 0.0151 seconds. The deceleration is 6.62/0.0151 = 438 m/s^2. So the mean force required is 68 times 438 which is about 29,800 newtons or 6,700 lbf.

Alternatively, if the deceleration distance is taken as 0.1 m, the deceleration time is 0.1/3.31 = 0.0302 seconds. The deceleration is 6.62/0.0302 = 219 m/s^2, making the mean force around 14,900 N or 3,350 lbf. In either case, the deceleration time times the pound force remains at 101 lbf.s.

If we halve the height to 3.67 feet, the terminal velocity only decreases by a factor of 1/SQR(2), changing the impulse of the force likewise. The mean velocity is also multiplied by 0.7071 which increases the deceleration time SQR(2) or 1.414 times. Given the same deceleration distance, the deceleration has halved to some 110 m/s^2, and the mean force has halved to 7450 N or 1675 lbf. The force relates to m*h*g/d where m is the mass of the convict below the neck and d is the presumed deceleration distance. The deceleration relates to h*g/d. The impulse of the force relates to mass*SQR(2*h*g).

Drop distances of 3 to 4 feet are generally insufficient to break the neck, so 1,675 lbf would probably be too low. The range 3,350 to 6,700 lbf would probably suffice, depending on assumptions of deceleration distance.

The overpressure duration of a TNT detonation above was taken as only 0.005 seconds. In the hanging case we have 101 pound force-seconds. So 101/0.005 suggests a force of 20,200 lbf over 5 ms, which is nearly four times the 5,306 lbf taken as required for the acceleration to 80 mph in 5 ms. 20,200/18 ins^2 would require 1,122 psi. Well over 4,000 psi is available at short range. The force available could easily have averaged more than 5,313 lbf or 138 psi over the blast period. In this case, the head could have detached some way through the 5 ms overpressure duration, and the distance travelled would have been as required. In any case, there would have been a finite delay. This, together with the more rapid acceleration of the bearings, would ensure that the shrapnel impacted the bomber's head and face at very high differential velocity.

As to the work required, the product of around 1,100 foot-pounds relates to joules: 1 ft-lb = 1.356 J. So 1,100 ft-lb is around 1,500 joules. Given that the energy of a 10 kg TNT explosion is around 42 MJ, this suggests that the work involved in breaking a single neck is 1,500/42,000,000 or 1/28,000 of the total energy released by the bomb.
