gorgack2000, for people in Canada, two canadians dead IS more important than 100 indians dead. Just like a stranger being killed in a car accident isn`t more important than if it had happened to an immediate family member.

"gorgack2000, they are trying to relate the news to their demographic. Here in Canada CTVnews was going on about two Canadians who were wounded."
It`s generally the fact that they`re making one person dying sound more important than 100 others that gets me. Still, I suppose "BRITON/CANADIAN/AMERICAN/etc. DIES IN TERRORIST ATTACK" gets more readers than "INDIANS DIE IN TERRORIST ATTACK".

I have been watching the ongoing news since this initially occurred...and I can`t believe that there are still "12" terrorists holding down hotels.

Now, there are warnings for NY and cities across the world.

This doesn`t worry me much, but I absolutely cannot believe that national defense decides to "calm" America by saying "Hey, no biggie...all the terrorist groups have been hanging out here for years.

"theres a typo in that article

they spelled "britons" but it`s "britans"
-_-

*sigh*

On topic: I find it interesting how all the news channels over here are reporting about how a Briton has been killed in the violence. Yeah, never mind the other 100 or so people :l

Bombay was the Dutch and British colonial name for the city, and should not be used any more.

The name is not "Mumbay" either. It`s Mumbai.

"Wait...it says `westerners`. That`s not just Americans. Could be Canadians too."

That`s what I was thinking too. But Canada doesn`t have as much an influence on the war as America and the UK do, so I guess we don`t come to mind first.

I really want to go to India though. =(
I guess I`ll be sporting my Polish side while visiting...

brainwashed, if all your ideals come from somewhere other than you, you have been brainwashed

think about what you do because someone else told you to, peer pressure, coercion, the media

ignorance is bliss, 1984 is round the corner

davymid, the people who hate America, will hate it no matter who the president is. When the 9/11 attackers were taking flying lessons, Gore was ahead in the polls.

As for the attack, absolutely despicable. There are rumours running around that the ISI are behind this, if so this could ignite a major conflict between India and Pakistan. Oh joy.

SoCal that was a very ignorant and rude comment. yeah people die all the time but this was different. no one has the right to kill someone else, or to steal their right to live. terroists are dirtbags and pshycopaths who have absoulty no control over themselves. they are brainwashed beyond belief and its so sad. so don`t say that it`s not a big deal that these people died because it is a big deal. i`m indian and i saw the news from india and people were literlly lying on the streets because they were trying to aviod gunshots or were dead. so stop being such a dick and arrogant non-nice individual.

Ok, American government... they`ve just declared that it`s ok to walk into some random hotel/restaurant/train station and start shooting. Let`s do it back, because apparantly that`s acceptable now.

Uh... kmuggee, your statement is inaccurate. When referring to British citizens in the plural, "Britons" is the correct spelling. Look it up if you have to...

"Why would they go for British people? I don`t really think they did anything... And what do they mean by Americans?"

im pretty sure theres a fair amount of racism towards indians/pakistanis in britain..some indian actress complained about it on a celebrity version of big brother britain or whatever its called..

vv "davy--At least you`re not American, even the countries that pretend to like us hate us."

I hear ya perfection. But here`s the good news (looking forward from this tragedy). World opinion about the US is set to swing DRAMATICALLY back in favour of the US now that Obama`s coming in.

You may not be aware of this because the media coverage of course focussed on the election from a US perspective. But wheras opinion in America was divided pretty close to 50-50 between Obama and McCain, the rest of the world were something like 80% for Obama. I mean everyone, from the Middle East, to Asia, to Europe, everyone. SOURCE

There`s an overwhelming surge (I think) of people who want to reach out to America and embrace the US once again as an ally and a force for good, which it`s lost a bit in recent years. I think and hope that the future

Fartacus:

The bali bombers were happily executed; they claim they`ll die as martyrs (riiiight... when did God tell you?). No, the bali bombing tale has reached its end.

Nevertheless, this story is remarkably similar.

I still don`t understand the mentality of these terrorists however. THe more they kill (or fight back), the more they`ll be opposed. This is a tried and true story. They should try something fresh. like sharks with frickin` lazers.

Well, there was the whole Iraq thingammy. You know, the invasion to find the WMDs? Apparently some people in the Muslim world are a bit pissed about that. I can`t travel to many parts of the world on my British passport anymore, it`s just not safe since 2003. As this story proves.

I don`t see what they can gain from this, maybe just some soldiers going into India too, hope not though, America needs to enter an era of peace at least for a while, like they did in the 1920`s, if we wern`t at war all the time we would be way more advaneced, with better technology and what not

With the intent of destabilizing the country? You would need to kill at lot more than 200 people to try and destabilize a place like India. I really don`t see where they were going with the whole thing.
