Default Pakistan Cricket team shooting

If this was done by extremists, they just did a great job of eliminating any support they may have had. They love their cricket in Pakistan (who knows why, but they do)

Fortunately, none of the cricket players were killed. Unfortunately, 6 police officers and 2 civilians were.

As far as this British referee's comments ...

6 officers dead is not leaving you as 'sitting ducks'

perversely, unless the nationalistic pricks out there are listened to first, this might be a good moment to galvanise those who were once enemies, into teaming up against a common foe.

the attacks in Mumbai were initially alleged to have been sourced from Pakistan. (an associate of mine who was out there at the time, says it was more likely attributable to a local mob boss, whose bidnis benefitted from the local coppers being distracted by internationally note-worthy news events!)

this act of death to cricketers is being touted by some (with hidden agenda) as being Indian based.

both are wrong IMO. of course the worst case scenario would be for the whitehouse to wade in, with claims that everything is iranian (or russian) in origin!

but ultimately i hope that battle lines which were once based on political borders might now be erased and forgotten about, in order to deal with a common 'extremist' entity.

opportunity in adversity and all......

Some have said Tamil Tigers, but I'm not really buying that.
