Western car bombs

Western governments and media often feign outrage about the resort to car bombs--when they are directed against their interests and against the interests of their allies--like Husni Mubarak or other Arab potentates loyal to US.  But the US has resorted directly and indirectly to car bombs against their enemies.  The famous car bomb that was aimed at Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah is known because Bob Woodward uncovered it.  But there are many others, I am sure.  Look at Syria today: agents of the US/Saudi Arabia/Qatar/Turkey/France/Germany/UK/UAE are casually resorting to car bombs and yet they receive fawning coverage in the Western press.
