Mumbai under attack - The Big Picture - Boston.com: "Late Wednesday night, Mumbai, India found itself the target of a ferocious terrorist attack, and the situation remains unresolved even now, three days later. According to reports, upwards of 60 young men entered Mumbai in small inflatable boats on Wednesday night, carrying bags filled with weapons and ammunition, and spread out to nine locations to begin their attacks. Lobbing grenades and firing their weapons, they entered hotels, a railway station and several other buildings, killing scores and wounding even more. As of this moment, the identity of the attackers has yet to be definitively determined, though there are reports indicating some of the gunmen were Pakistani - at least nine of them have been killed, nine more arrested. As of this writing, there were a reported 151 people killed from 11 different countries - though nearly 100 were Indian. More than 300 injuries have also been reported - those numbers may yet rise as several hostage situations still exist in the city."As you know, most of the war pictures we see are scrubbed - we never see really horrible images anymore.
If you follow the link you'll see the some extremely graphic pictures from the attacks in Mumbai. The really bloody pictures have a "click to see" cover so you can pass over those if you want.
I read that 2300 people had been killed in terror attacks in India in the past year. 2300!
Here's a paradigm shifter - terror attacks aren't made for political reasons - it's just gangs of hoodlums banding together because they have nothing else to do and no other identity except as destroyers.
