ndtv is reporting that Pakistani intelligence has contacted Indian intelligence...
and emphasized the need to establish a hotline between Indian and Pakistani intelligence agencies, citing the need to cooperate against a "common enemy."

2. ndtv is also asserting that the operation was carried out
by some element referred to as the "Mujahadeen of Southern India."

3. Apparently the Pakistani foreign minister offered an expression of
outrage against the attacks, and it was the Pakistani foreign minister who suggested the hotline between top intelligence officials of India and Pakistan.

4. I thought this was an 'unknown' group that attacked
They seem to be fronting themselves as the NEW BOOGEYMEN.

Whats with the 'conversation'?





PS - Take the RED PILL.

9. I still don't get it, however,...
I am nothing if not obtuse... but if it's meant to be an insult, just spit it out in plain language.

12. I'm with you on the "red pill" thing.
It someone is zinging you, they should do it in your "language". It reminds me of the time I lived in the Philippines. When I was mad, I could cuss in English and most people knew enough English to understand what you were saying, but it had not "emotional content" to them after translation. Or I could cuss in Tagalog, which wasn't as satisfying for me since it had little "emotional content", but see a big reaction from Filipinos. (Obviously, the latter approach could get a little culturally sensitive at times.)

Here are some updates from the BBC:

1137 The president of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, has spoken of the need for strong measures to eradicate terrorism and extremism following the Mumbai attacks. His Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, has meanwhile called for concerted efforts to make the region a peaceful place to live. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said the attacks showed that terrorists were trying to destabilise democracy by targeting an important centre of the Indian economy.

1145 Jason Burke, a Pakistan-based journalist and expert on Islamist militants, tells BBC World News that its "too early" to tell whether the attacks were carried out by a foreign group, as India's prime minister has said. "It's not uncommon after such attacks that the Indian government blames terrorists from Pakistan," he says. "Pakistan is likely to respond and we could see a very nasty diplomatic crisis coming out of this which is what the group behind the attacks wanted to provoke."

14. Thanks pampango...
for the updates. The history of the region certainly escalates the potential backlash, and I'm hoping cooler heads prevail.

As for the insults...I figured that's what was meant, but I don't take my cues from popular film culture, so the jabs missed their mark. :hi:

15. That is certainly my hope Mari333...
earlier threads were opining about the possible relationship between Pakistan and the attacks. I just thought it a hopeful sign that Pakistan was condemning them outright so quickly, and suggesting some way of cooperating on opening another form of communication with India.

17. I believe this is a good step, I also believe the terrorists and their sympathizers are most afraid
of a solution to the issue of Kashmir being resolved.

Thanks for the thread, adsoletter.
