Our condolence for Pakistan

THE death toll from a deadliest terrorist attacks in Islamabad on Sunday has risen to 70, according to a diplomat at the Pakistan High Commission in Kuala Lumpur.

Rescuers were still pulling more bodies from the shell of the Marriott Hotel. The dead included the Czech ambassador and a second American. At least 250 were wounded when a truck full of explosives was rammed into the hotel gates. “There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came hours after Pakistan's new president, Asif Ali Zardari, delivered his first speech to lawmakers. Islamic militants have vowed to destabilise Zardari's government, which is faced with deepening economic gloom and growing public anger over Pakistan's alliance with the US, especially over American military operations against the Taliban and other Islamic extremists who have set up base in Pakistan,” he said.

Western anti-terrorist officials were fast to point at Al-Qaeda and fundamentalist groups, including Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi of Afghanistan, said to be stepping up their coordination to attack the Pakistan government in retaliation for efforts to combat extremism in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.

My grandparents hail from Pakistan and I'm always saddened by the long unending bloodshed and sufferings of the people.

As you can see, every time the US touches anything, or dips it filthy hands in the politics of any nation, we have these consequences. And alway quick to point the fingers are these so-called "terrorism experts". To hell with them.

Destabilization of Pakistan (using the worn-out Al-Qaeda boogeyman...kesian dah tak de modal lain) is a chance for them to tighten their stranglehold on Pakistan's balls for their own strategic purposes.

These American dalangs sit there in their comfortable, "civilised" surroundings on Capitol Hill or the White House or SATAN'S abode in some plush suite and discuss how to cause havoc and mayhem the world over to meet their own objectives.

For them Allah has reserved a special kind of hell. So they can continue to enjoy their wine and "civilised" surroundings while they can.

i think it was a warning to zardari not to allign himself with the americans. he must introduce a policy that keeps pakistan in a group of 'non-american tools' nations. otherwise, the anti-US terrorist may come back with more damage.

this is how i see the situation in pakistan now

those innocent victims, regardless of race and religion, could have been spared should the local authorities and the hotel management pay more attention towards the security aspect.

knowing there was a transition of government, all measures should have been taken to safagueard the city, inlcuding that of common public and tourists interests.

i am sad by this development as i frequent islamabad once a month for business.

bang,
keganasan ada di mana-mana. di negara kita pun ada macam2 keganasan, termasuklah rumahtangga, di sekolah dan di lokap polis.

cuma rakyat kita masih memiliki sikap saling mengasihi dan tidak sanggup berbuat sesuatu yang ekstrim seperti dipakistan

terrorism is an act of coward. killing innocent people for the sake of wanting to get the message accross the world, should be condemned internationally.

malaysia is lucky to be away from such elements.

however, we must be at guard all the times as we cannot take any chances.

in this manner, we should support ISA..


ISA! ISA! ISA!
