It is weird that a terrorist network like al-Qaeda would not have their work known. In Spain there were no suicide bombers from what has been assumed a charactaristic trait, and now this bomb is found by itself without a moblie-blow-up-friend.

Could al-Qaeda be changing their tactics to avoid linking?

Since when does a terrorist care for self-charity?

This is a copycat terrorist, some just want attention, market demand and supply

Proof positive that terrorist cannot be appeased. France has been one of the most outspoken proponents of restraint against Iraq and has done everything in its power to keep the US out. Yet terrorist still threaten them.

Aggressive proactive action against terrorist is the best strategy. Keep them on the defensive. While nobody will ever be able to stop a small group from committing an isolated act of terrorism, aggressive action can keep groups like Al Qaeda from organizing the devastating attacks like WTC.

On the humorous side, Rush Limbaugh just said, the threat level in France has been raised from RUN to HIDE in response to this discovery.

Bear in mind a group called AZF said they'd plant 10 bombs on the French rain network. They wanted a ransome, not Islamic political objectives.

The point of terrorism is not to be appeased, terrorism is just an upgrade of the random bully with a dash of violence. The point is to coerce fear, that is all they care for, they get a hard-on for people screaming and crying and bleeding. Sadly, killing them only inspires more of them to kill. While I agree we somewhat cannot get every little dirty tom, dick and harry, we must work to eliminate the future threat via education. Basically pull them off the track that leads them into 'evil thoughts': prevent poverty which leads to human isolation and paranoia (which is what many have refered to as jealousy and hatred) causes terrorism.

Sadly, that mindset may actually support small-business terrorist groups since we are putting all our resources on something like 9/11 to happen once again. That is like getting all jumpy about the next asteroid impact...I'd care more about those washing machine sized ones that could take out a city block!

While I'd never [intentionally] say anything in defense of France...

...keep in mind that they've recently made a lot of Muslim enemies due to the no-religious-symbol policy; particularly relative to banning hijabs for young women in schools.
