Boston Bombers - Captured or Killed

The two sick Islamist terrorists who are allegedly the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon Bombings are now in the custody of the law enforcement. Swift work and great job by the American law enforcement officials. That shows not only the hard working nature of the police officers here but also the political will and corruption free atmosphere the people here enjoy. When it comes to anti-American activities there is simply no pardon, everything is set aside and people work together as one nation. To say that I am impressed would be an understatement. I definitely salute the law enforcement and politicians who gave them unfettered power to go after the culprits and bring them in.

The Scenario in Bengaluru which also experienced serious blasts is quite the opposite, politicians are playing the blame game, people are back in their routines, media has forgotten the incident and now it occupies the inside pages of the newspapers. Police probably are just adding pages to the case and doing some paper pushing. Terrorists are probably laughing and partying away and planning their next attack. That is the pathetic state of affairs in the world's most populous democracy.

If I was in India reading this very post, I would be enraged and say what does the writer know, he is living in the comfort of America. One thing those in India must understand, we maybe far away from the country but we still love India and feel frustrated when such events take place and people just sit around and twiddle their thumbs. I want to see those involved in the recent Terrorist attacks in Bengaluru brought in front of the law and killed like the Mumbai terrorist. Same goes with every single anti-India person who wants to commit treason. This can only happen when the common people in India take action and do something - voting for the right candidate would be a good start. Getting actively involved in the community/ social well being by setting aside narrow political, caste wars aside would be even better. This will defeat the anti-National forces easily.

Phrase Mocking Asians on NJ CVS Photo Tix - Yahoo! Finance

Despite decades of protests and living together as one nation, some sections of America continues to be racist. An obvious example comes out in this news report. I don't think racism is going to end as long mankind is alive on this earth. We just have to live with it and face it when it happens and continue to work towards creating a race-less society.

Great Response to Terror Attack in Boston

'Cowards' Billboard Lights Up Boston Skyline in Wake of Blasts | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo!
Great Idea to intimidate the terrorists... wish the idea were implemented elsewhere in the world. The sick people who decided to commit such a heinous act are currently laughing but will be seething in anger when they see this billboard.

I am quite impressed by the thought behind the billboard as it clearly conveys the message that we maybe temporarily hurt and facing a setback but we will not bow down to cowards like you. Quite good. Boston Rocks.... Terrorism Sucks...

Boston Healing Through Prayers

One thing about America whenever there is a great calamity people gather together in the church and pray. The prayers will comfort the living affected and the relatives of those who succumbed. This kind of religious outlook is good for the society and keeps everyone together. At a time like this people don't think whether he is Jew, protestant, baptist or Methodist or catholic or even whether it is a Hindu or someone else who is hurting... everyone gathers in the Church and prays.

President Obama who visited the memorial and prayer service at Boston was quoted in MSN saying "You will run again!" That is nice, coming from the President.

Looking at the same scenario in Bengaluru, India where blasts rocked the city yesterday, the politicians are still playing the blame game and trying to find the culprits. No mention has been made about the people affected and killed. Nothing at all. It is pathetic to see so much apathy. I know few people directly affected by the blast and they are definitely not being comforted the way people here are doing it. It is business as usual in India because this kind of bombings are common and have been happening for the past three decades.

Wonder when these sick minded cowards who perpetrate such attacks will be eliminated from the face of the earth.

Boston to Bangalore - Suffering Terrorism

The Boston Marathon suffered some serious calamities due to bomb blasts. Now it is the turn of Bangalore, one of the most peaceful cities in India until recently. Not anymore. It is becoming a hotbed of terrorism and other nefarious activities, thanks to indiscriminate population growth and development secondary to the IT boom.

This time the blast was politically motivated, targeted at the only political party that somewhat sympathizes with the majority community of the nation. Cowardice of the perpetrators comes to fore once again in the modus operandi of the entire operation. The similar pattern of keeping explosives in a motorcycle and abandoning it in some populated location. This is primarily to strike fear in the minds of public and destroying their property.

All that I can say is that these people whoever perpetrated the crimes are simply cowards, even to show their faces. They don't have the courage to stand up and fight so they indulge in covert warfare. It is time the good people of this world take matters into their hands and punish such people severely.

Boston Carnage - America Under Attack

America is under attack from terrorists - internal and external - bent on destroying the freedom that the people of this country have enjoyed for a long time. The country's premium sporting event The Boston Marathon came under attack during the past 48 hrs. This attack on a sporting event has left 170 people injured a few dead. This cowardly attack resembles that of terrorism. Sick people who are not brave enough to declare war but covertly attack innocent public. It is a wonder that this attack comes at a time when Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law is set to appear in a civilian court in New York. Is this attack an Islamic response to that? I don't know, nothing has been revealed at this point in time. I sure hope that the truth comes out and whoever perpetrated this attack is suitably punished.
