No shit. Death toll has doubled since I saw it on CNN.

There is strangely a Wiki about it already:

Sure, anyone can edit a Wiki article...but the attack *just* happened.
Coincidence, or.....I dunno, just think it's weird.

Muslim terrorism no doubt. Fuckin ridiculous. They're attack India because of some sort of vendetta against Hindus.

Coincidence, maybe.
We should do some hardcore sleuthing to uncover the truth!

I don't recognize terrorist states, or any that harbor terrorist activities, or engage in such actions that would propagate such terrorist activities. So, Bombay it remains. (Burma too.)

Mumbai is a city in India. It got its independence bloodlessly Cf. the US. I fail to see your point.

They specifically targetted British and American citizens.

I'm Scottish. This has nothing to do with anything.

Don Leone: Does this have anything to do with India being a "terrorist state"?

I agree. If by your definition of what constitutes a terrorist state would hold true, you wouldn't recognize the USA. The USA is engaged in increasing technological advances. By doing this, the USA has propagated people like Ted Kaczynski. The Oklahoma bomber. Etcetera.

Reductio ad absurdum.
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
Not sure of your tone punxtr, the sentence structure makes it sound sort of insincere...but not sure who the insincerity is for...

India is a moderate pro-US, pro-coalition, pro-War on Terror, vaguely anti-Muslim state which has had a number of wars with Pakistan. It earned its independence legitimately and as such the right to revert the names of its cities to their pre-colonial states. It has never funded an insurgency campaign in this century, and sentiments in the country are anti-terrorist. To characterise the nation with respect to these people is tantamount to calling Britain a nation of serial-killing general practitioners because of Harold Shipman.

It makes it sound sarcastic. I argued reductio ad absurdum because his point made no sense nor gave him any reason to misname Mumbai. The man simply posted the wrong name and then tried to cover his own ass. Plain and simple. I'm very sincere.

Mumbai was once called Bombai, notice BOMBay... I think the officials there are messing up, everything taking to long. India has a massive army, just send shitloads of soldiers overthere and crush those terrorists! India wants to be reconned as a world power, but that's hardly believable when you see them "handling" this problem.
Indy
Yeah it was pretty lame, compared to the SAS in London 1980, the Black Commandos were pretty slow.
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
The number of soldiers available doesn't have much to do with how good they are at managing hostage situations.
NCP
No, but even the best terrorist can't handle millions of soldiers searching every building

Perhaps making a mountain out of a molehill, here.

Now India is pointing the finger at Pakistan, maybe this'll end up in a war. It wouldn't be the first time anyway.

They both sort of have nukes now though.
