Japan Bombs

The atomic bombings of the Japanese towns Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.

Bombers are, as titled, people who use bombs in their attacks against people and/or locations. Usually, bombers are terrorists and are therefore typically associated with terrorism, but they are not limited to such.

PathologyEdit

Criminal bombers are unlike any other criminals, except poisoners. They plan meticulously, nurse long grudges and retaliate far out of proportion to any injury they feel they've received.

Types of Criminal BombersEdit

  1. Bombers - This simple type of bomber uses one or more bombs, usually large and extremely destructive ones, in only one attack. Examples of bombers are Timothy McVeigh and Anders Behring Breivik.
  2. Suicide bombers - This type of bomber, like the above category, uses at least one bomb to carry out their attacks, but unlike simple bombers, suicide bombers die in the blast to "martyr" themselves, to escape incarceration, commit insurance fraud, mental illness, or to simply end their lives. Suicide bombings are usually utilized by terrorists such as Al Qaeda. Examples of suicide bombers are five of the seven ringleaders behind the 2004 Madrid train bombings, the perpetrators of the four suicide car bombings at Yazidi communities and Andrew Kehoe. Examples of non-terrorist suicide bombings include Thomas Doty and Julian Frank.
  3. Serial bombers - These types of bombers use more than one bomb to carry out their attacks, which sometimes occur between cooling-off periods much like those of serial killers. Examples of serial bombers are Eric Rudolph, George Metesky, and Ted Kaczynski.
  4. Car bombers - These types of bombers, be they just bombers or serial bombers, carry their bombs in a vehicle in their attacks. The bomb detonates inside the vehicle, tearing it to pieces and turning it into shrapnel. Some commit suicide car bombings. Examples of car bombers are Timothy McVeigh, Anders Breivik, and Andrew Kehoe.
