There's no reason to believe they will come after us, but, given the slightly unpredictable nature or fanatical suicide bombers, who can say they won't?
too true. until our most recent skirmish into the middle east, Irak and indeed London had never before seen backpackers who go pop.
it almost makes you yearn for the good old days of telephone coded warnings from the irish accented balaclava brigade!
mind you, with India claiming a pakistani source of the mumbai terrorists, and with Pakistan getting defensive in response, pakistan will either:
1. be left to accept any western strategies to combat the terrorists who lie wihtin its borders, or
2. india can provoke pakistan to move its troops eastwards, thus allowing coalition troops over the afghani border into pakistan, with a lesser risk of their being detected.
suddenly, those mumbai trouble makers could be seen to CIA trained!
i bet you OBL is found in time for Xmas!
all praise Santa Bush! he stayed the course and secured victory in the end!
motive - check
opportunity - check
evidence -oh no! plausible deniability makes this all tin foil hat time!
