14 terrorists....all together in one bus....pull the other one. One smells the pungent whiff of propaganda.

"chances are they all were fanatics. In an operation with a vehicle of this size you are going to need some sort of diversionary tactic or an advance push by a separate force to allow the vehicle to get close enough to blow up the intended object. Use of a large vehicle indicates the target being large. A large target will have security. You need to get past that security to hit the target. Normally the advance force will travel in a separate vehicle because there just isn't room in the vehicle with the explosives. In this case there was no need for a second vehicle. Everyone fit in to the bus. Whatever they planned on hitting you can rest assured that it was a large or important target with a vehicle and force of that size. We got lucky this time. If that bus hadn't prematurely detonated, rest assured you would be reading about something big happening on the front page."
