This is not what we want to see.
IUDs or Improvised Explosive Devices have been part of life for our soldiers in Iraq, but now one has been found under a bridge in the US.
Initial reports confirm this is a serious and devastating bomb. Had it gone off, it would have been carnage.

The McLennan County Sheriff’s office and a bomb squad used a water cannon to breach a suspicious device found under a bridge Tuesday night.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives blasted water on the container found just outside Rosebud off Farm to Market Road 1963.
Flammable liquid and shotgun shells were found inside the container, according to Sheriff Parnell McNamara. He said the IED was designed to blow shrapnel and would have been “extremely dangerous” had it gone off.
Rosebud, about 40 miles southeast of Waco, is home to about 1,400 people.
