Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for answering the question about Laura Bush.
What is going on with India? Obviously it’s a terrorist attack. but any correlation with pakistan or al queda? What’s next for India?
I didn’t feel it was Al Queda, never did. And, not being an expert on the whole world of terrorism didn’t know about all the other groups out there. I watched MSNBC today (maybe it was CNN) first there was an interview with Kissinger, yawn. And then with two actual experts on India. The first thought there was some domestic involvement, the second thought it had all the hallmarks of some group that was a terrorist group born, breed and trained in Pakistan.
My gut told me the second guy was right. I’m sure the terrorists knew the lay of the land, had been to Mumbai before many times planning everything out. They were not Indian. And I’m sure they were Muslim extremists. I’m sure of that for so many reasons, as I’m sure the rest of the world is 100% sure of it, too. I’m not going to go into how angry I am about this, how anti-spiritual all forms of terrorism are, whether its Islamic, or Christians blowing up abortion clinics, or the ancient Jews murdering the Goddess worshippers (notice a theme, they all believe in the same God, and yet they all fight over details about Him? Hmmm, people didn’t do that before Jehovah, what’s up with that? But I digress.)
The other interesting thing the second expert said was that India had developed some sort of nuclear based laser system to take out terrorist camps in Pakistan if something like this were to happen to them. He claimed India wouldn’t start there, but that the people of India would demand the government do something.
All of this lead me to believe that those aspects coming up made even more sense. Perhaps India will try to get Pakistan to offer an apology. It won’t be either good enough or they won’t do it. India will either as retaliation, or as a means of defense hit Pakistan with its new weapons system to try, and take out what they see as the next potential threat.
After 9/11 I think we as Americans know how it feels to be attacked, and not only do we feel for the people of India, but we can understand their outrage, and pain. It is natural they will want to strike back. And, unfortunately, I get the feeling from Pakistan they are indifferent, or cold to the pain of their neighbor, and this will exacerbate the wound.
I don’t think Obama will be able to stop this, nor do I think its in our best interest that he does. I don’t have a feeling this war would escalate to the point of getting totally out of control. I feel it will be more strategic. And perhaps even help us to bond with India in an attempt to rid Pakistan of their compliance with terrorist groups.
I will spend the next couple of posts answering questions about the stock market.
Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving weekend. And again we pray for the Indian victims, and their families. May they cross into the light without fear, without pain, without sorrow, without regret and may those they left behind be given solace, protection, and remember their loved ones will always be with them.
Wishing for this world compassion and love. If we could only have that — we would have everything.
