Disgusting is what i can say! the government of Indian and the Indian politicians need to be blamed here!
for me more then punishing the culprits, the people who suffered need to be given all help! and ofcourse the company needs to pay up for all this!
and also make sure such accidents dont repeat!
the politicians who made money out of all this should be "hanged"!
politicians are the dirtiest/worst creatures on this earth!

The current indian mindset is best explained by an eminent journalist
Anita Pratap, the former South Asia BureauChief of CNN in an interview
"The last five years saw India make enormous strides economically. Many people have prospered and they don’t want to be held back by old wars. Indian middle class and intelligentsia have also become terribly insensitive and selfish. The average Indian is currently obsessed about making money. That’s also because the media in India – like in most other countries – is completely controlled by the corporates and so focus only on trivial issues and pursuits - on cricket, films, celebrity lifestyles and sensex. As far as the media is concerned, they are addressing consumers, not citizens"

Like I said earlier, anderson should have been caught and stopped 25 years ago and not let out on bail :( Maybe India can try for his extradition again or more monetary compensation..
As for Iraq, it wasn't about oil..well not in the way everyone believes it to be. Read a book called "America's Secret War" by George Frieman. The reasons for the Iraq war are given in there. Bassically in a nut shell the US invaded Iraq to control Saudia Arabia because at that time and still for the most part, the funding for al Qadea and other terrorist groups comes from or through Saudia Arabia. We needed a way to control or freak the Saudis out without invading them first. Iraq was the best and only option. So no, it wasn't about greed, it was about national security. The WMDs were just a ruse to hang the whole invasion on. Obviously the world couldn't know or understand the real reason.
So before everyone harps on all the bad stuff America does, go back and read the history. There is a reason for EVERY foreign policy decision taken by each administration. Sure, it may look bad to me or you, and indeed a lot of them were bad and led to the deaths of people, whether they were innocent or not, but they were done for specific reasons, some of which are still classified and may never be revealed.
Coming back to Bhopal, even if Anderson is extradited, convicted, and sent to jail the guy is like almost 90 years old now. It wouldn't be true justice, just symbolic :(. He prolly would only live for a few years in jail. Anyways, I do think an effort should be made to make him stand trial somewhere at least.

I am assuming Saudis got really freaked out due to Iraqis getting killed for their fault and all support to AlQaeda has stopped and things are great.
Since we in India know for sure that Pakistan is behind the terrorist attacks on Indian soil via the ISI, it is a matter of our national security and so I guess by your "logic", we can go ahead and bomb them out of existence. Wonder why the US does not agree with this logic that they themselves formulated.
