India: The Latest

You have to sympathize with India. Muslim terrorists kill 200 (so far), wound 800 more, and still Israel-Lebanon-Gaza gets all the press. I thought it was worth checking up on the latest developments on yet another front in the war against Islamofascism. Here's the rundown:

- India delayed scheduled peace talks with Pakistan.
- Mumbai halted for two minutes of silence this morning, exactly one week after the first bomb went off.
- Lashkar-e-Qahhar, the relatively unknown terrorist group that claims it's responsible for the bombings, claimed it would provide audio and video proof of their role in the attacks. And threatened follow-on attacks, of course. Many think that LeQ is just a front for Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
- India hasn't offically fixed-blame on anybody, but the explosive used points to Islamic terrorists out of Kashmir.
- Finally, at least one Congressman, Rep. Pallone, a New Jersey Democrat, is laying the blame squarely on Pakistan, claiming that historically Pakistan's ISI has supported LeT.

I understand why Israel-Lebanon-Gaza is getting all the press: it's a hot war, it's a story with which more people are familar, almost everybody can conceive of how it could spread, and it has been tied to the Iran's campaign for nukes. That being said, we're wise to remember that India and Pakistan already have nukes.
