Hat Tip: BC via Sig94. Sig has a great take on this as well over at his digs too: The Land Mine Pixies Are At It Again

Ahh, what’s this? Oh just another item from Iraq or Afghanistan with the splodeyating, goat-molesting, assholes-for-allah seeding some more IEDs right?

WRONG– do read on as the story was only carried by a few local news outlets.

Landmines Found In Creek

This mine, likely an anti-vehicle model, experts said, was found by two teens out with their mother and dog for a walk Friday. A bomb-disposal team found another nearby yesterday.

STRATHROY — A country creek where children swim, fish and frolic was instead swarmed by police yesterday as Canadian Forces explosives experts detonated two live landmines.

Strathroy? A quick consultation of a map determined it’s just a bit west of London, Ontario. That’s rather odd, I didn’t think the Boy Scouts have a merit badge for the care, feeding and planting of landmines. Two, Live, Anti-Tank landmines.

The mines, found in a culvert that runs under Inadale Drive between Strathroy and Mt. Brydges, appeared to have timers and were likely the type used to blow up tanks, Strathroy-Caradoc police say.

One mine was discovered by two girls Friday. They called police, and a second mine was found yesterday morning, only one metre away from the first.

Now you have my attention. Anti-Armor mines with timers planted in a stream bed in Ontario. It’s not like somebody just misplaced them and I don’t recall seeing any of those little bad-boys on sale recently at my favorite arms dealer either. Let’s just read on, but the smell-o-meter is rising.

Unsure if more mines are hidden nearby, Strathroy police asked the OPP to conduct a sweep. It was to have been done by dusk yesterday.

The creek is popular with families, so police suspect the mines were put there to maim and kill, or in callous disregard of that possibility.

“The senseless loss of life or grievous bodily harm that could have taken place at this creek — it’s reprehensible,” Strathroy-Caradoc police Sgt. Mike Overdulve said.

Live mines with timers, planted in an area frequented by families. Gee, I wonder what malignant, murderous bastard or bastards would do something like that. It couldn’t be terrorists right? The left assures us the only terrorists are the ones being created in Iraq, due to the occupation by the eeevil US and coalition forces. “Everybody” knows the airtight security in North America would never allow them here.

The potential for devastation was evident yesterday as a military team detonated the mines from a safe distance.

The force of the blast ripped bark and limbs from a tree and sprayed water so high it could be seen by observers a kilometre away.

“I could feel the percussive force,” Overdulve said, “It was 100 times louder than any fireworks you ever heard.”

Seven centimetres thick and 25 centimetres in diameter, the mines appear to be the kind used to disable tanks.

One brilliant j-school graduate in another piece on this story, described them as ’suspected’ mines. Let’s have a peek shall we at what a suspected mine looks like:

Land Mine

“We can’t definitively prove that, but that is the direction we are leaning,” Overdulve said.

Well it does look at bit like this M15 U.S. Anti-Tank Mine:

But then I’m not a highly-trained professional explosives expert. Maybe it’s just a coinky-dink.

After the detonation, the explosives experts found debris “consistent with timers,” he said.

Timers? Maybe to splodeyate the splodeyating device during a time when there would likely be innocents about.

The first mine was found Friday afternoon by nearby resident Lynn Denning, who walked to the creek with her two teenage daughters so that their yellow lab, Jesse, could enjoy the cold water.

“It’s upsetting,” she said.

While Inadale is a two-lane country road, many residents cross the culvert to commute to London, Denning said.

“There’s quite a lot of traffic during the week,” said Denning, who commutes to work at London Health Sciences Centre.

So, the placement could also take out the bridge at a convenient time, perhaps during the morning rush-hour with a school bus or two nearby.

The family called Strathroy-Caradoc police, who sought help from the OPP, who called in the explosive ordinance disposal team from CFB Base Borden. The explosives team left its base 100 kilometres north of Toronto at 6:20 a.m. yesterday. “We responded quickly — we take this matter quite seriously,” said Capt. Cheryl Swarbrick, a base spokesperson. Their presence was soon felt and heard on a normally quiet, tree-lined road. “I’ve seen hand grenades and ammunition, but I never encountered anything like this,” Overdulve said. Until a year ago, Overdulve lived near the creek, taking his three kids there to fish so often, they called it “crayfish creek.”

“This area is typically occupied by children, who come here to play,” he said.

Take you pick of scenarios, kids or commuters.

POLICE SEEK WITNESSES

Anyone who has recently been to the creek beneath Inadale Road between Strathroy and Mt. Brydges, or has seen anyone acting suspiciously near the creek, is asked to call Strathroy-Caradoc police at 519-245-1250.

Inquiring minds want to know. For whatever it’s worth, this area is only a 90 minute drive from Mecca West™, otherwise known as Detroit, Michigan, USA. Perhaps the FBI should start shaking the bushes, trees and knocking on a few mosque doors, but we wouldn’t want to offend the Religion of Pieces inhabitants now would we? Why that would be profiling, can’t have that.

I let this one sit overnight, actually expecting a bit of a ripple on the national level MSM. Not a single peep. The few articles I located were all local Canadian news outlets and nadda, zip, nothing dated today.

Nothing to see here….move along folks. We can’t make a bid deal out of this, the unwashed masses might jump to conclusions.

    Mindy-

    but how do we know it’s muslim terrorists. I am not dismissing that possiblility, how can we be sure it’s not some local nutcase?

    We don’t, but when investigating a case like this, you start with circumstantial evidence. Those were military ordnance with timers, not home-made pipe bombs. Having spent my hitch in the military, I’m well aware that those devices aren’t just left lying around unsecured. That implies some conspiracy to steal them, making it unlikely that a lone individual could accomplish that. They were placed in an area frequented by civilians, primarily children. Add in proximity to Detroit, a known breeding-ground for domestic, muslim terror cells and you’ve got a decent start on where to begin looking. Moreover, it’s across the border and just far enough away to seed some doubt into the location of the actual perps.

    If you’re in the woods and hear hoofbeats, most people think horses, not Zebras.

    Who gives a hoot-in-hell if it’s a local nutcase, it’s still a terrorist.

    The real story, behind the story is, why it’s not being blasted across every major media-outlet in North America.

    “The senseless loss of life or grievous bodily harm that could have taken place at this creek — it’s reprehensible,” Strathroy-Caradoc police Sgt. Mike Overdulve said.

    Volcanoes are senseless. Lunatics- real ones- are senseless. Hurricanes are senseless. They have no sense. They are insensate.

    Those buried by jihad are not “senseless victims” of “mindless violence.” They are killed to make a rational, deliberate point: that they were infidels, and their lives had no value except to be destroyed as a warning to non-Muslims.

    It is the refusal to acknowledge this basic truth which increasingly is becoming one of the most relevant facts in world news that is senseless.

    to wit: Bush and Rove managed to hack into the CIA spy satellites, thus being able to manipulate the weather so that it would hit NOLA and drown all the blacks.

    Let’s see…Bush can manipulate spy satellites; he can control hurricanes; he’s powerful enough that lack of HIS signature alone causes tsunamis; he masterminded 9-11…and the left calls him stupid! ROFL.

    Because of the size of the explosion, it is also effective at LZ clearance and mine and beach obstacle clearance. Injury or death to persons will be primarily caused by blast or fragmentation. It is expected that the weapon will have a substantial psychological effect on those who witness its use.

The thing is, the Russkies liked designs with bigger pressure plates with raised edges and butt-ugly “ridges” on them (if I remember correctly), but it could be a really old design I suppose.

    What I do know is that if it is an EastBloc design, then I need to go hang my head in shame for quite some time, because I should remember those nasty shits down to the last detail. Somebody with a better memory than mine please help us out here.

    I’m pretty sure you’re not full of shit. I’ve got the distinct feeling that I’ve seen this design before and it’s not been in movies or games. I’m rather sure it was during Bundeswehr armor training.

    So, this one is either a WaPa AP mine or an old NATO design. The WaPa is thoroughly possible since my battalion at the time was descended from an old Eastern German armor battalion, so it is possible that they kept the old, inert training equipment.

    I’ve never consciously seen a British model, so I can neither confirm nor deny this. But the thing definitely doesn’t look like it’s WW2 vintage, a bit too well preserved…

    Have done some quick research. The image of the mine would seem to indicate WWII vintage or maybe later date Chinese origin. Also, the cannister is quite corroded. Many moons ago (early 70’s) I recall seeing a landmine ID chart for armies of the world. Have not been able to locate it. Probably from Janes or similar. Maybe someone can do some more digging and post more details. Am really curious how they end up in Canada. Not exactly what your modern immigrant brings in his luggage, is it?

    I live near Detroit and use to work contract for GM, all my suppliers were in Canada so I was crossing the border 3-4 times a week.

    Crossing into Canada was so simple and easy, all I needed was a drivers license. They asked 1-3 questions and I was on my way, sometimes they didn’t even look at my license. I crossed at both Detroit and Port Huron, both were the same way.

    Coming back into the US was another matter all together. The first time going over with just my license (this was just 1 year ago) trying to get into the US without my birth certificate involved many tears (involunatry) and promises of never doing that again. They almost held me until someone would bring my birth certificate.

    Each time coming back they ask dozens of questions, look you in the eyes while asking and being very serious about the whole thing.

    And I am just a little white girl.

    I see it as a waste of money to have the canadian boarder crossing guards there.
