    What happened at that hotel sounds horrorfying, some say it's India's 911.

    No one saw it coming, but who would suspect something that fukced up was on the way

    I really, really feel for that mom in Virginia who lost her husband and 13 year old daughter in this madness...

    And that poor 2-year old baby who lost his parents (the rabbi and his wife).

    Though I feel someone should give that cook who saved him a medal or something... when the gunmen attacked she barricaded herself in the kitchen, picked up the boy and ran. She should feel proud, she saved the baby's life even if she couldnt save the parents.

    this was a tough story to track and because of all the choas it was very difficult to keep all the numbers up to date before we went over the air. these stories allways make me feel a little sick when im working on them. its hard to creativly tell their story and at the same time give these people the respect they deserve for what they are going through. that group that held the attack is made up of disgustingly sick people

    well that's kinda the point. The more Terrorists that are killed by western troops; the more outrage it causes more outrage in the countries these troops occupy combine that with the propaganda made by these groups and hey presto you have a perfect atmosphere for extremists to get people over to their side.

    but isn't contained to just western countries or countries occupied by western forces.

    The target is any place where any underworld cabal of well financed men of power think they can gain by attacking.

    Sorry, but no. Terrorists arent always people who are against the West. There are civil wars going on around the world right now that dont involve the West at all.

    Case in point: the few decades old war between the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan government. The Tigers are a recognized terrorist organization and they have no conflict at all with the Western world. I know this one personally. Its just a war between two races.
