Liquid Explosives

There were reports suggesting that the latest Heathrow-centered airline bomber plot involves liquid explosives. If anyone doubts that liquid explosives are real, here is an example of one. I believe that the Pentagon looked into making this a standard kit item for infantrymen in the 1960's. It could be poured directly into soil and detonated to make instant "improvised foxholes" or rigged with a trip mechanism create a landmine. I think stability or storage problems hampered its widespread use, however.
