Would radical islam note the day a Pope ordered the first crusade in the Holy Land? Today’s date?
Looks like the fire at the Taj has now broken through towards the center. Official giving a briefing but not in English.
Read that there are 17 groups of gunman at various locations around the city.
The attackers arrived by boat.
I switch between NDTV and IBN
IBN MS Player stream (in English)
Brit Hume just showed a map of at least 7 sites in Mumbai that have been attacked.
Thanks for the ping fanfan.

yup. scattered cells unleashing havoc.
This ties up the authorities.
Calling for blood donations in Mumbai.
Question was this a head fake...is there a second operation planned.
Good going Tom. Thanks, I did not get a good look at the map when the showed it on tv.
Yes. and designed for maximum anarchy.
There maybe cells that havent come online yet.
I hope it’s not the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade tomorrow. I’m going to be there with my family.
A police van has also been hijacked by gunmen, who are driving around the city, firing wildly. The chief of the Mumbai counterterrorism police and two other senior police officials have been killed during heavy fighting.
16 locations targeted according to the BBC.
I assume the burning hotel will drop.
Maybe not, but AQ plans well.
Yes, the second Monday in October.
Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and all the trimmings.
Have a great one!

You must be exhausted. It’s now past 4.30am.
Is there something else planned.
That hijacked police van that sprayed the crowd...has me thinking something else may be in the works...i.e. a second phase.
Like I said earlier, I think this is just the “warm up” act.
ADDING 1 more link to post no. 558, 559:
Gottcha... NDTV is giving reporting while the other is showing a press conference.
Just heard on CNN that schools and colleges are closed.
You’re welcome Cindy.
A second phase is typical of AQ operations, Though it has never been drawn out this long.
I hope I am wrong
Sigh ! My comp clock is showing 4:40 am and i am really sleepy .
But i am afraid to sleep really .
My TV is on I am watching Headlines Today .
The rest of my family is asleep .
Since the university of mumbai is shut tommorow i dont care about not sleeping .
We will know by dawn east cost if ther will be a second component.
police van...thank you.
My brother-in-law will be there as well.
WHAT IS THE LATEST ON THE BRITISH MP > ?
Let’s hope there is no second wave.
You are right to stay secure this AM and not venture out if it isn’t necessary
This is just terrible.
Didn’t Mumbai get hit by terrorist several years back (if I recall they bombed a train.) Is this the same group???
Yes, it’s awful. Prayers for all.
See its almost 5:00 am and my crazy aunt will go for government milk . I wanna call up her house and tell her to not go today .
Mumbai gets hit often to varying degrees.
Yes the train bombing was there. No it was not the same group.
Muslim/Hindu tension is high in the NW
Now it is Muslim/Christian(or Anglo) tension from the looks of it.
Martha I just thought of Bidens warning.
Saying the terrorist activity at the Taj has ceased. However top floor fire is still very active. Female reporter is at entrance describing extensive damage. Police barricades appear minimal if reporters are allowed at an active gunfire/fire scene.
Tell hee if you would...plead with her to stay away from any kind of gathering of people.
No, but all the American tourists would be there for holiday.
AND, it’s holiday weekend here, timed to make sure everyone saw it.
