Bombay

They've hit Bombay, the bastards. I want to hunt them down, each one of them, and pump bullets into their brain. Fuck the trial, fuck due process, fuck rule of law; these monsters need to be disposed of outside the law.

I'm generally rational, and I try to be reasoble in my responses to situations, but this is one of the few of the occasions where I wish India were a bit like Israel, or Sri Lanka, and that Sukhois would take off from the nearest airbase and suspected terrorist camps, even beyond the LoC, would be pounded to dust, and that all known and suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives would be taken into custody. Fight fire with fire.

I am sincerely hoping that somewhere out there (Police, RAW, whoever) is a bunch of people sitting around a table, going through reams of data and intelligence, and vowing to themselves that every last one of the people responsible for these atrocities will be hunted down and killed.

My heart bleeds for Mumbai. But I know that Mumbai cannot be cowed down by such cowards. Mumbai will show them that their worst is just not bad enough. Srinagar will show them that they can't get away with throwing grenades at vehicles of innocent tourists. Inshallah, justice will be done and these scum will be wiped off the face of the planet. Godspeed to the people sitting around that table.

Why do we have to be caught napping? My rage is directed at the politicians now!! Mumbai is a target, everyone knows but no one in the higher echelons seems to care. It's high time the citizens questioned the government.

i think we should stop saying mumbai is resilient and just hunt down the bastards who did this!

@subotai - hmmm, i guess you're right, and speaking of Israel, what they're doing to Lebanon just CANNOT be right!

@shivani - hmmm, even delhi isn't that secure, the diwali blasts being a case in point, security-wise i guess Chennai would be the best bet

@silverine - i agree with you, but i do wonder, whether the government can really do something to prevent an incident like this one..

@anon - i hope they're doing it!!

As for the bombers, I was equally raged. It's war, and the enemy is hard to find. It's a tough situation.

I digress from the seriousness of your post, and go back to an unfinished conversation many moons ago. I studied in in a school called St.Josephs's in Thrikkakara, till I was 7. I quite like strange possibilities.

Shoot the bastards.
IMHO, nothing of that sort is going to happen. Mumbai's shitty "chalta hai" attitude isn't even worth pissing on.
*sigh*
