Concrete Was Stripped From Reinforcing Steel  A key indication of the force of the main blast is found in photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts of damage to a reinforced concrete building that was 50 feet from ground zero.
In a nation where [state terror] and rice are two of life's staples, Indonesians [don't[ appear to be changing their habits. You can still get rice with your Kentucky Fried, but the [noble cause corruption and general corruption] is easy to find, at least as far as the [CIA false flag] Bali bombings are concerned.
In the days and weeks after Bali, the CIA, the Indonesian armed forces (TNI) and unidentified foreigners were all accused of planning and executing the attacks. While Western governments immediately blamed Muslim extremists, many Indonesians were deeply sceptical.
"The CIA did it" was always the favoured alternative view. For a while it was everywhere, on the streets, peppered through the media, heavy in the tabloid press and in the pro-Muslim Jakarta broadsheet Republica.
Evidence that Howard was complicit in CIA, false flag, call to arms, Bali bombings
While Howard remembered those who gave their lives in war, he said he believes the Australian people will understand if there are casualties in any military conflict against
Australia's Terrorism Wake Up Call  The horrific bombings of the Sari Club and Paddy's Bar in Bali, on October 12, 2002, considerably strengthened the hand of the CoW [Coaltion of the Killing] in pursuing the War on Terror [War on Resouces in the Middle East.] Here was an opportunity to harden the hearts of the Australian and US public against Islamic fundamentalists [scapegoats.] It was also a chance for the Indonesian government to justify harsh measures in the war against terrorists and secessionists, such at those in the province of Aceh.
On Monday, October 14, barely a day after the blasts, the popular tabloid Rakyat Merdeka ran a page one headline: "Scenario - America behind Bali attack".
Nuclear Demolition Munitions - An Evil Madness Continues 
The design and construction of nuclear munitions does not qualify as 'science' or 'technology'. It is insanity. Daniel Quinn has shown that the absolute need to conquer and exterminate all possible rivals, the need to 'conquer' the land, and to bend nature to the rule of man, all derive from core taker thinking. Takers always fear attack because their own philosophy is one of growing rich and powerful through attacks, whether military or economic. Takers progress by either killing or enslaving 'them', 'the ones who are not with us.'
Conversely, takers live is constant fear of attack from competitors for the scarce energy and resources of planet Earth. They build vast armouries of increasingly dreadful weapons to deploy against 'the other side'. When there are no evident enemies to fear - no 'other side' - taker states and their media machines will quickly invent some. Takers then use such contrived 'threats' to justify their own growing stockpiles of WMDs.
A page one story from Republica on the same day quoted a man portrayed as an intelligence expert, A. C. Manullang said, "It's simply impossible for Indonesians to make such a big plan. Only a superpower country is capable of making such a plan."
Even Vice-President Hamzah Haz jumped into the issue assuring his countrymen: "The Bali bomb blast I'm sure was not an act of Muslims."
The sceptics reasoned that the United States had been frustrated with its inability to prove its claims that Indonesia was harbouring terrorists. By blowing up Bali nightclubs it would be proved right and thereby help ensure a crackdown on Indonesian Islamic groups while also building support for its war on terrorism.
[Other sceptics from the west reasoned that the blasts were a USA call to arms, to bolster support and quell dissent for the Coalition of the Killing's illegal and degrading resource wars in the Middle East.]
With [lots of] tangible evidence [see photos and links here], even airing [the truth] might seem [propaganda] to the West. But in a country that has long held a deep suspicion of the US, and especially the CIA's involvement in Soeharto's coup of 1965, people have learned it usually pays to distrust official versions of events.
In the 30 years of Soeharto's dictatorship, Indonesians also learnt the wisdom of suspecting the military when blood was spilled.
Police 'had role in' Bali blasts
INDONESIAN [politicians], police or military officers may have played a role in the 2002 Bali bombing, the country's former president, Abdurrahman Wahid has said.
Within days of the bombings an air force officer became the first person accused. After his innocence was [allegedly] quickly established there was a new flurry of excitement when it was revealed two army generals had been in Bali suspiciously close to the time the bombs went off.
And then there was the bomb itself, which has been analysed obsessively. Numerous Indonesian experts concluded locals could not have made it because it was either too big or too sophisticated. Indonesian police confused things further with their doubtful finding that the bomb was made of RDX, an explosive they said was "usually used by foreign military".
When police arrested their first suspect, Amrozi, and accused him of the bombings, the scepticism seemed to grow. How could a normally bungling police force catch a bomber so soon? Why would he admit to his crimes so quickly? Why would he have returned to his home town in Java if he was a suspect?
And then, within weeks, the alleged organiser of the mission, Imam Samudra, was arrested on a bus to Sumatra. When he appeared in chains, stared hard at the cameras, and cried "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great) did he blow a hole in the conspiracy theory balloon? I don't think so!
Alleged bombers have been picked up across the country to deceive the Muslims because the bombings were planned and executed by a group of extremists, mainly TNI Indonesian army, paid by the CIA, or nameless foreigners.

The Truth About Bali Bombings Part 1 REMIX Part One + Two: Que Bono. Who Benefited? The Bali Bombings were a direct US-Israeli response to the growing Peace marches and Anti War Movement in Australia that was ballooning at an alarming rate after 9-11 and after Bush announced he was waging illegal invasions.
