It’s good he’s been “chummy” with BHO for our sake- unfortunately he will be the president in January- he damn well better get a reality check between now and then.

North Korea is going to ratchet up pressure on South Korea, too, maybe even instigate an incident.

This is all in response to perceived Western weakness in electing Obama, and it is also his test he will get, just as Biden predicted. I think the next big attacks are coming in the United States itself.

52% of the American people can in part be thanked for this dire global situation.

Sometimes Bengalis or Assamese can look more East Asian than Indians from other parts of India. And of course the Muslims in Bangladesh used to be Indian (and Hindu, a long time ago).

I really could not believe that there are self-styled “terrorism experts” who believe such crap, but there they were on CNN.

There are "experts". And, then, there are "media experts". They're two different things.

All it takes to qualify as a "media expert" is to a.) have a glib knowledge of certain names and places and b.) voice the propaganda desired by the host media.

An "expert", however, actually has to know something about his subject.

It's not enough for the networks to lie via paid staff. They also hire contract liars.

Yes, why would a locally based group choose to assault in boats? They would have so many more options on land, unless the water routes/access points were just a lot more vulnerable,
~~~
My best guess is that part of the force just came from the

(AQ)training camps,,,(by sea),,,

CNN had a map that showed attack points from one end of

the city to the other,,,so,,,

Some were already there,,,drove/walked from a safe-house,,,

IIRC the attacks started about the same time,,,(9:30 pm),,,

They all seemed to carry their ammo/etc. in backpacks,,,

Weapons too ,,,

Nobody would look twice at a guy with a pack...

Cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine, also known as RDX, cyclonite, hexogen, and T4, is an explosive nitroamine widely used in military and industrial applications. Nomenclature variants include cyclotrimethylene-trinitramine and cyclotrimethylene trinitramine.

In its pure, synthesized state RDX is a white, crystalline solid. As an explosive it is usually used in mixtures with other explosives and plasticizers, phlegmatizers or desensitizers. It is stable in storage and is considered one of the most powerful and brisant of the military high explosives.[1]

RDX forms the base for a number of common military explosives: Composition A (wax-coated, granular explosive consisting of RDX and plasticizing wax), composition A5 (mixed with 1.5% stearic acid), Composition B (castable mixtures of RDX and TNT), Composition C (a plastic demolition explosive consisting of RDX, other explosives, and plasticizers), Composition D, HBX (castable mixtures of RDX, TNT, powdered aluminium, and D-2 wax with calcium chloride), H-6, and C-4.

RDX is also used as a major component of many plastic bonded explosives used in nuclear weapons.

Maybe the exact composition of the RDX found may help with tracing source(s) of support for the terrorists?

Aren’t there usually clues to the point of origin from studying the exact chemical composition?

“Turns out, this is still a very dangerous world. How about a do-over on that election we just held?”

Well, that’s the nut of all this, isn’t it? Not only can we not have a do-over, but with Obama overstepping his current role, and the cowardly “global community” fawning over his every step, we are now at our most vulnerable.

On the upside, this knocks the economy off the front page, and may distract congress from trying to “save” it.

But the fact remains we are stuck with a future CiC who is now being tested. If nothing else, the events of tonight (and likely future events) may prevent this country from making the mistake of electing an Obamaesque president ever again. It’s going to be a long four years in the mean time.

New info:

New Delhi: Ten people reportedly sneaked into Mumbai via the sea route from Karachi and carried out a pre-planned and well-orchestrated strike in India under the aegis of the dreaded Lashkar-e-Taiba militant outfit.

A report on Times Now quoted intelligence agencies as saying that the timing of the terror attack coincided with efforts at peace talks between the newly elected regime in Pakistan and the authorities in India.

The militants reportedly used speed-boats to get from the coast of Karachi to Mumbai and then spread out into the southern part of the city and spread mayhem around the central business district by storming two major hotels and opening indiscriminate fire at several places.

The report quoted the intelligence agencies as saying that this information came from one of the captured terrorists after last night's heist in India's financial capital that saw more than 87 people lose their lives and 200 being injured with a few hostage dramas continuing for nearly 12 hours.

The report also said that there was no group called the Deccan Mujahideen and the e-mail has been traced back to a fictitious IP address in Russia. It said that the hawkish elements in Pakistan stage-managed this terror attacks to coincide with the visit of Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who was to visit Chandigarh today in the company of his Indian counterpart Pranab Mukherjee, a trip that has since been cancelled.
