I don;t get why you are surprised that it was well organized?
My dad is at the Taj at least once a month, and were not sure if his freinds were there or at the restraunt that they hang out at that was also struck. fuck hope those guys are ok.
I agree wiuth everthing you said so far 100%.
You also have to look at the word "terrorist" as its used in each case. There is something like 80+ definitions of the so there really isn't a set definition of what a terrorist is. In a way I guess you could call a terrorist some one who uses terror and other means that are not conventional to try and obtain thier goals, but in reality every government opperates in this kind of manner.
But I am not exacly the most inteligent person or on the ball about these kind of things and I tend to see things from multiple sides. So I am a typical dumbass American.
Stuff like this is always going to happen it's sad and wrong but many oppressed groups feel like it's the only way they can be heard or the only way they can do something about their problems.
The organization that is claiming resposiblity for the attacks is called the Deccan Muhajaden (i beleive). From what I know about India is that there is a sepratist minority in southern India who are the Deccan's, they have lived in southern India since before what are considered modern Indians (Aryans). Modern Deccan's are mostly muslim (though the Deccan people existed before Islam did, so they are recent converts) and their region is one of the poorest in India, thier people have faced centuries and centuries of discrimination at the hands of Hindus and British.
I'm not condoning their slaughter of innocent people but I'd bet that most Deccan's feel hopeless and face hard lives where they are discriminated against and oppressed, many just want autonomy and freedom.
Well cricket is important! Even though we were getting bent over by India.
No on a serious note, shit like this annoys me alot. Fucking terrorists. "picking out British and American tourists". Wankers.
I just want to point out that 7 years later we still haven't found Bin Laden.
i also want to point out that 9-12 we had the whole world behind us, yet somehow that global suport was squandered by the president.
it's funny what you percieve to be a flipflop.
