I wonder if it s a sign that I m getting older that I m not as enad with Mike Davis style as when I was red eyed collegiate trying to keep up with whatever the cool smart kids liked to read The thing that s beginning to exasperate me is his assumption of my cultural historical knowledge the way he ll drop countless terms historical events and references without describing what they were Sure I m supposed to be historically literate I get it that s my obligation and I can use Wikipedia to instantly look up just about anything And I understand that you want to write a book about interesting things without having to over fatten it with summaries of events that may have been better described elsewhere But would it kill you shove in a uick description How bad could it be to just tack on a subordinate or parenthetical clause Minor example he says on page 79 that Hezbollah fighters in Beruit in the early 1980s had an obvious understanding of Viet Cong tactics in the Battle of Saigon Cool But um I don t Could you throw me a bone Mister Davis What were the relevant Viet Cong tactics in the Battle of Saigon that Hezbollah understood Or am I just being a lazy whiny readerWhen Planet of Slums came out a few years ago I eagerly bought the first copy I could get my hands on But as I tried to fight my way through the first chapter the notecard on which I write down unfamiliar words or events that I need to look up filled up frighteningly uickly Battered by bindonvilles and chawls alongside jargon and theoretical references I could barely penetrate I gave up Buda s Wagon seemed a little manageable a mere 200 pages about shit that blows up how hard could it beAnd there is something darkly evilly fun about this book You can almost imagine Ramzi Yousef as some sort of inverted James Bond reimagined for this nightmare world we inhabit He travels the planet s exotic locales Manhattan Bangkok the Phillippines Pakistan s impenetrable mountains wreaking havoc on an unsuspecting world Instead of specially prepared BMWs or Audis paid for by car companies buying product placements he pulls up in Nissan refrigerator trucks or Toyota delivery vans stuffed with villainous concoctions of fuel oil fertilizer and aluminum dust The corpse of the stolen truck s driver stuffed in the cargo area with the cleverly designed bomb stands in for the henchman s lackey that Bond would so casually take outI like the book s coverage of what are in the US media usually such obscure fighting groups be they the French Algerians of the OAS the Black Tigers of Tamil Sri Lanka the Senderistas of Peru or the Stern Gang and its offshoots in Palestine It does hop around from conflict to conflict in service of its theme of talking about car bombs but I don t particularly mind that Some of the interesting uotesContrasting Green Zones like the one in Baghdad and other specially secured installations in the world s cities Davis writes The vast majority of us will continue to live in the Red Zones vulnerable to sinister Fiats and Ryder vans As Rhiannon Talbot points out in a reflection on the IRA s Bishopsgate bombing No matter how many police officers are on duty or how many special constables and auxiliary police officers are drafted we cannot guard every building of significance in the country nor every street where hundreds could die if a devastating bomb were to be detonated Such common sense of course must be pounded into the heads of politicians and police officials besotted with fantasies of beating the terrorists with panoptical surveillance ion detection technology roadblocks and that sine ua non the permanent suspension of civil liberties p 194He also uotes Irish journalist Tim Pat Coogan who says the need to decommission the IRA arsenal so fetishized by Loyalist and British politicians was actively debunked not by an Irish spokesperson as one might have imagined but by a senior RUC Royal Ulster Constabulary officer who also offered a remarkable assessment of the role of car bombs in the Troubles This is not a military issue it is a political issue The major portion of damage and death caused over the entire period of the troubles did not come from hand guns and rifles from home made mortars or even from Semtex explosive It was caused by the fertilizer bombs which can be made up by anyone with a schoolboy knowledge of chemistry Two men with shovels can make up a thousand pound bomb in a Fermanagh cowshed and if for some reason the operation has to be aborted they can decommission it again all within twelve hours You can t decommission shovels It s minds which have to be decommissioned pp 194 195This uote is from Milt Bearden one key CIA official who channeled arms money and know how to the Afghan mujaheddin in the mid 1980s that is to say he is no starry eyed peacenik I saw him talk at a conference put on by Sandia National Labs here in Albuuerue I think in 2002 or late 2001 He wrote in the New York Times in 2003 that There are two stark lessons in the history of the 20th century no nation that launched a war against another sovereign country ever won And every nationalist based insurgency against a foreign occupation ultimately succeeded p 179Referring to the broad mix of bombers who emerged in the 1990s In contrast to the old unitary menace of the Soviet Union Washington now faced a chaotic spectrum of enemies spontaneously generated by the contradictions of globalization as well as the blowback of past policies rogue assets like Sheik Rahman megalomaniac bomb school graduates like Ramzi Yousef hometown militiamen like McVeigh self organized Islamists like the Riyadh bombers super Capones like Pablo Escobar and remnant Maoists like Sendero Luminoso and then there was the enduring spectre of Hezbollah s Imad Mugniyah the General Giap of urban guerrilla warfare Calling them all terrorists a playground epithet in the serious business of geopolitics hardly advanced anyone s understanding of the post Cold War world p 149 I really like that phrase a playground epithet in the serious world of geopolitics It really captures the lethally childish state of my country s political scene and political thinking Here s an awesomely phrased death threat sent out by Pablo Escobar s cronies We are friends of Pablo Escobar and we are ready to do anything for him We are capable of executing you at any place on this planetin the meantime you will see the fall one by one of all the members of your familyFor calling Mr Escobar to trial you will remain without forebears or descendants in your genealogical tree p 110 Theatrical and ghoulish indeedReagan era CIA director William Casey I learned on page 92 was a fervent Franco supporter during his college days in the 1930s I often forget about the unashamedly pro fascist community that thrives in the US right But every time you see that or Thomas Frank s recounting of international festivals that Jack Abramoff organized on behalf of Jonas Fucking Savimbi it makes my mental jaw drop Shouldn t college students in the 1930s been dreaming of running off to fight in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade But no Ultimately the most powerful people in the world end up being the ones who rooted for the annihilation of the anti fascist fighters the destruction of Spanish democracy or stable African independenceBut again and again the Cheneyite philosophy of dealing with the dark side proves counter productive Casey in 1980s sends support to the Afghan anti Soviets by way of Pakistani dictator Muhammed Zia and his Islamist intelligence chief at the Inter Services Intelligence agency The ISI vetted the selection of trainees and generally restricted the flow of arms and explosives to the four most extreme Islamist groups fatally weakening the moderate and modern factions By the late 1980s writes Steve Coll the ISI had effectively eliminated all the secular leftist and royalist political parties that had first formed when Afghan refugees fled Communist rule p 93Casey who saw political Islam and the Catholic Church as natural allies against the Kremlin was delighted with the carnage in Kabul and Afghanistan It was the greatest transfer of terrorist technology in history there was no need for angry Islamists to take car bomb extension courses from Hezbollah when they could matriculate in a CIA supported urban sabotage course in Pakistan s frontier provinces pp 94 95Finally I want to write down a uote from Robert Pape s celebrated study showing that most suicide terrorists are actually local patriots responding to collective injustice above all the humiliation of foreign occupation especially when the occupier is seen as seeking to impose an alien religion or value system Few suicide attackers are social misfits criminally insane or professional losers Most fit a nearly opposite profile typically they are psychologically normal have better than average economic prospects for their communities are deeply integrated into social networks and emotionally attached to their national communities They see themselves as sacrificing their lives for the nation s goodhe bottom line then is that suicide terrorism is mainly a response to foreign occupation Ghosts of East Texas and the Pineywoods process exposing the role of state intelligence agencies The Ultimate Submission particularly those of the United States Israel India and Pakistan in globalizing urban terrorist techniues Dav.

Buda s Wagon details the sordid history of the car bomb from its first incarnation as a wagon bomb parked on Wall Street to the current horror that is US occupied Ira It also sheds light on a subject I had no knowledge of which is the terrorist campaign fought by the Israelis against the British The Stern Gang introduced the car bomb to the troubled area while fighting their colonial masters but they soon turned their sadistic weapon on the Arab populace who of course retaliated in kind We all know how that story never ends so I ll not bore you with further details and neither does Davis though he does bore us with further details of other conflicts Normally I love his books but this one fell flat for me it takes too much time to discuss the details of individual bombings and the thousands of people who are killed by them and not enough time discussing the broader significance Essentially it could have been shorter though it is already uite short I just didn t find myself being particularly interested in the details of bombing campaigns and found the brief descriptions of the overall political atmosphere and the conditions leading up to the terrorist attacks to be too light and sometimes confusing Chapters are generally under twenty pages and the vast majority of those pages are dedicated to the describing the impact of the bombs in a literal and physical way I found myself not following the non bomb related events but wanting to know about the individual struggles Too often Davis also assumes the reader has knowledge about the struggles than I think most people have at least that was the case with me I do enjoy reading his prose though so I struggled through the sometimes tedious parts and found the book to be on the whole enjoyable but not nearly as packed with intriguing information as his other efforts Many of the pages devoted to details of a given bomb how it was made how it was set how much damage it did snuck by with me zoning out thinking of other books by Mike Davis all of which are great and should be read by everybody

characters Buda's Wagon A Brief History of the Car Bomb ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Mike Davis ñ 9 characters Read & Download Buda's Wagon A Brief History of the Car Bomb On a September day in 1920 an angry Italian anarchist named Mario Buda exploded a horse drawn wagon filled with dynamite and iron scrap near New York’s Wall Street killing 40 people Since Buda’s prototype the car bomb has evolved into a “poor man’s air force” a generic weapon of mass destruction that n. Buda s wagon truly has become the hot rod of the apocalypse Davis concludes uips like that offer some ironic relief in this relentless genealogy of vehicle borne terrorism At his worst Davis has the favorite vice of American pundits left or right of simply channel surfing the misery of everyone but us in advancing a unified theory whose coherence depends much on its superficiality That said this is the same Mike Davis whose City of uartz I read somewhere around 15 years ago and found to be the most astute urban history of Los Angeles I d ever read There is definitely some continuity between these works and also with his inbetween works which read like Foucault on global capitalism At it s best Buda s Wagon is an insightful parody of military histories that demonstrate the irresistable might of the mighty by virtue of their ever expensive toys Through copious historical example beginning with the first car bomb exploded not in the Middle East nor any other part of the third world nor in mafialand but on Wall Street in 1920 by a socialist sympathizer to Sacco and Vanzetti culminating in the current situation in Ira Davis argues that the poor man s air force poses a far pervasive and elusive threat than that of nuclear weapons or any other high tech weaponry The ubiuity of such components as ammonium nitrate fertilizer combined with the impossibility of screening weapons that can inflict casualties from an ordinary vehicle located hundreds of yards from its target make car bombs perennially attractive to the bad guys The politics of the book are not by the way overtly leftist He has no sympathy for Hezbollah Escobar the Tamil tigers and the Sicilian mob Nor for the socialist who started it all At the same time it s hard not to come out of the book stunnned at how much the tactic of the car bomb exceeds the usual assumptions For example the first use of car bombs in the Holy Land was by Jews A militant wing of the Zionist movement who commit what we would now call terrorist acts against government and civilian targets in British Palestine seeking to provoke civil unrest that could be used to their benefit Similar tactics were employed in Algiers by militant representatives of the European settler population hoping to provoke the native Algerians to violence that the French military would be compelled to suppress Yes counter to that oft heard right wing conventional wisdom it s not just something about Islam In the past century there have been Jews Christians Hindus and Buddhists perfectly willing to kill civilians indiscriminately Once one shifts perspective to the tactic of car bombing and why the hell not given how long we ve spent obsessed with the tactic of terrorism as if it stands for a political ideology it is difficult to imagine how any kind of surge or surveillance technology or military strategy could possibly make the world safe If there is any message to be gleaned from Davis s book surely it is that our only hope lies in working to undermine the underlying conditions that produce terrorists in the first place Because we are not capable of taking away their ability to hurt us
