reason being votebank again
I was recently reading a book "Naked Economics" and it actually explained why govt. usually tries to appease the minorities! (mainly because they always vote in bunches). It also explains why a strong government is required to prevent this.



There's a proverb that if you continue to do what you're doing, you'll continue to get what you're getting.

Because they have guts! It was really a wonderful news when Indian Navy had blown up Somalian pirate ship in the Gulf last week. If the govt. allows a free hand to army, the problem will be solved within a month. But rest assured, our respectable politicians won't let it happen.

Every other nation's security forces must be laughing at us.

@Netfreak
Thats good to hear. Any news of an official engage command?
God bless all those who have/are suffering :(
This is India and mostly importantly Mumbai where even a Havaldar with a pot-belly and a stick thinks he is robo cop.

Guys, situation is grim..
Mumbai folks pls do not venture out unless you can confirm that things are safe.. these terrorist morons may be on the loose anywhere and this time things look lot worse than what has happened in the recent past..
I hope the army is able to weed out each of these cowards before they take more innocent lives

We had the history where with the fall of hitler ,nazism almost got eliminated.but for some other bigger cults ,the time period for its destruction will be the destruction of human civilization also(IIIrd world war?) .We cannot expect billions of people into stupid *cult* to leave their habits they got.Many such cults cant allow people in other religion existing in earth.yeah ,India is democracy ,still. :(

It is true. Log on to any news website you will get the same numbers. I think terrorists have really gone on a suicide mission this time!

Hope all our fellow Bhpians and families are ok!

life is so cheap, even terrorists don't care whom they are targetting. this is a careless inhuman massacre, with no objective that can be met with it.

Ha at last some army guys are entering the hotel now.

This would be a learning experience for all the other business people, companies and the hotels so that at least now they should start taking care them self with good security service.

We cannot be dependent on our government for a good service.

People please no police bashing today. They've taken a heavy toll and give them a break.

@ Amien
Most foreign agencies take tips from Cops/BSF/Army for counter insurgency, bomb detection, urban warfare etc.

PLEASE NO COP BASHING AND POLITICS IN THIS THREAD.
