TEC: Chapter 42: The Details
This chapter comprises barely two pages, and seems to be a response to the idea that…well, perhaps this terrorist attack wasn’t very well thought out.
Can’t imagine why anyone would think that!
So we learn that Asim and Najjar are our Moar Arabs. Much like Norm and Jim, they have the same job and background, and thus we learn nothing about what differentiates the from each other. Except that Asim will drive his bomb-containing truck to the middle of the bridge on the top level, and Najjar will do the same but on the bottom level.
Talon had convinced his Arab crew that this attack would dwarf 9/11 and would go down as one of the greatest single attacks in history.
Still not sure why two Arab terrorists (from Arabistan or some such place, I suppose) would take the word (or the orders) of a white South African, but whatever.
So, the two Moar Arabs are getting ready to disable their trucks at the middle of the bridge. They’re hoping the simultaneous detonations will destroy the bridge, though how that would help in the dispersal of the radiation, I don’t know. Still, though, it is a plan, right?
Well, it’s…part of a plan.
