Below is an interesting analysis of the Mumbai attacks. I am still forming not sure about what went down there. Read and reflect us with your opinion.

5 Points That Destroy India's Latest Fairytale5 Points That Destroy India's Latest Fairytale

PESHAWAR, Pakistan—In 1988, Indian Navy and commandos took only 24 hours to storm Mamoon Abdul Quyum's palace in the Maldives when it was taken over by rebels and eliminated the rebels within another 24 hours.

But in Mumbai, it took India 60 hours to eliminate ten terrorists equipped only with KKs. The entire drama seems to be well scripted like Bollywood/Hollywood movies. On one side they blame ISI for planning, executing the whole episode and on the other hand they blame ISI for committing silly mistakes and leaving behind incriminating evidence to be picked up by the Indian intelligence so it could find easy links to Karachi/Pakistan.

Some other Indian lies include:
1.. Indians failed to detect movement of the alleged merchant ship from Karachi and then its off loading of passengers at high sea.
2.. These 10 daredevils traveled in rubber dinghies up to Bombay shores unnoticed. Was the Indian coastal defense system asleep?
3.. The terrorists waded through the marshes of Bombay coastline, reached the road network, hijacked police vehicles, divided themselves in three groups and then headed for their targets in the posh localities of Bombay, and EVERYTHING GOES UNNOTICED.
4.. Like precision guided missiles these terrorists reach their targets and take over heavily guarded two 5-star hotels, dodging the security system of the entire city of Bombay and the internal security system of these 5-star hotels and the Jewish center also.
5.. They fight it out with Indian commandos for 3 days and all but one is killed. The Indians claim that he is ISI sponsored. If we believe the Indian storyline, it defies logic. How can a professional spy agency like ISI commit the following mistakes:
1.. Sailing the terrorist off from Karachi. Why not Dubai, Chittagong or Eden for better deception?
2.. Credit cards of Pakistani origin in their pockets. Do the suicide bombers carry the IDs in their pockets?
3.. Their Pakistani Punjabi ascent. The first lesson given to intelligence operators is to adapt to local environments. If such an operation was planned by Pakistan and ISI, the operatives would have known that they would have to communicate/ negotiate with the hostages and others and hence would have concealed this giveaway sign.
I leave to the readers to decide if Indian lies are white or black.

AS an open, diverse and at times chaotic democracy, India has long been a target for terrorism. From the assassination of Mohandas Gandhi in 1948 to the recent attacks in Mumbai, it has faced attempts to change its national character by force. None has yet succeeded. Despite its manifest social failings, India remains the developing world’s most successful experiment in free, plural, large-scale political collaboration.

I am quite certain that these well-planned attacks were not homegrown, and almost certainly originated from Pakistan.

The prime solution to the present crisis is to force the closing of terrorist training outfits in Pakistan, and apply the law to those who organize and finance operations like the Mumbai massacres. Hafiz Saeed and other suspects should be sent to India to stand trial. The remark by Pakistan’s president, Asif Ali Zardari (a man whose history of shady business dealing makes him demonstrably unfit for high, or even low, office), that he did not think the terrorists came from Pakistan would be funny if it were not tragic.

The United States gives around $1 billion a year in military aid to Islamabad; that is leverage. It does the people of Pakistan no favors for its leadership to continue with the strategy of perpetual diversion, asking India to be patient while denying the true nature of the immediate terrorist threat.

I received this e-mail message recently from a friend in Karachi: “Nowhere does it get more depressing than Pakistan these days — barring some African failed states and Afghanistan.”

So you guys over here believe that if not Pakistan, then India did it itself, eh?

And why can't ISI make mistakes?? Aren't they human?

Who do you think is responsible then for burning NATO convoy trucks ? Hmm.. ?

I may not agree with your point of view, but I will defend to death, your right to say it.

You are added, purely for political reasons

i believe that these acts were horrible as horrible as the terrorism that occurs daily in Pakistan.

ISI is a bogeyman for the Indians..The thing is , as i had mentioned in the post before - the terrorism Gennie which was created by us with the consent of the Americans is out of control..

Pakistan is struggling with the terrorism here..This was done to draw Pakistan and India into a war with each other..

ISI is a boogeyman for the Indians..


Thats the most serious thing I have ever heard in past 10 years. All I would like to say is - Boye ped babool ka, to aam kahan se hoye?
Pakistan is reaping what General Zia starting sowing decades ago. Enjoy the harvest of poison.

Mustafa said...

Luscious, I agree with you that Pakistan is as much a victim as India.

The fact however remains that Rebel's each and every word rings true.

We have nobody to blame but ourselves. Until such time that we acknowledge this fact, as a nation, and dismantle all corrupted agencies such as ISI and exterminate all militant sympathisers within the Government and the Military, we will not be able to get ourselves out of this quicksand.

I am certain that the Pakistan leadership did not sanction or were even aware of the Mumbai attacks. They however had given free reign to those who planned this attack. In my opinion, that makes us as guilty as having had done it ourselves.

We need to stop harboring terrorists if we want to claim innocemce.

Remember why Mohammed Bin Qasim invaded Sindh. It is because the local Hindu Rajah was harboring pirates. Our habit of continuing to "finger" India will one day have terrible consequences for us as a nation.

we should stop deluding ourselves that we are in the same league with India. We are not even close and every day we lag further behind -- closer to becoming a failed state. Is that what we wish for our children?

It is true that we have to eliminate this poison but we would need good neighbors for that. What India has been doing in Afghanistan since it got a foothold there post 9/11 has made things only worse.

India will not remain unaffected as the current events show.

Mustafa said...

The questions is who will "tame" the ISI. Zardari's government does not have the public mandate or the political mandate or the muscle to act against ISI. This is assuming that it wants to do so -- a highly suspect assumption.

So, if the Government will not act and if the Military will not act, then I believe we Pakistanis better be prepared for someone else to come and do it for us.

It will not be pretty though.

On 21st January, when Obama takes over, we should brace ourselves for the silk glove to come off the iron fist. Crippling economic sanctions followed by surgical military strikes will happen in quick succession unless we weed out completely all the rogue elements from the Armed Forces and the Government and eradicate all militant organisations.

Maybe this cancer that is afflicting our nation needs such radical surgery as what will be performed by DC and New Delhi.
