The irony here is that the people who set off these bombs most likely drove to get the supplies and to plant the bombs.

I find it more troubling than ironic, although it is possible to create explosives with similar results at home, just MUCH MUCH more dangerous.

I would rather someone blow up some metal than blow up an office building.

The irony that this person(s) is bombing pipelines complaining about what the oil fields are doing, then driving around in a vehicle. Everyone hates the oil fields and what they do yet at the same time complain about the price of gas. If this person never drives a car, never buys goods from a large retail store, and only buys locally than he/she(s) has the rights to be mad.

My understanding is that these gas lines, if ruptured, can flow into low lying areas and kill on masse (which is not what he is trying to do, he just wants them to pack up and go home). He probably feels that if he pressures them enough they will magically change how the pipelines affect his community. I think his main gripe is not that they are pulling gas and oil out of the ground but that they are doing it near where he lives.
