You're a plainclothes law enforcement officer in a Middle Eastern country rife with terrorism, first on the scene where a crowd has gathered around an apparently abandoned piece of luggage:-
What do you do?
1/. Move the crowd back to a safe distance, and call for assistance then wait for the bomb squad.
2/. Exclaim "fuck this for a game of soldiers" in Arabic, cack your pants and flee the scene in terror.
3/. Stroll over nonchalantly, lean over the potential IED and open it while surrounded by gawping yokels.
Apparently to the Levantine mind,option 3 is the answer. (Warning: fairly graphic content, don't complain we didn't warn you.)
