General, you wrote:

>>... what are you going on about this time?

i used to believe in the tooth fairy until i turned 7 and realized its a myth.<<

The tooth fairy seems to have done a good job on you during those seven years. Now you seem unable to separate fact from myth.

>>Your words are also a myth --and Mombai attacks were an inside job by BJP right-wing hindu nationalists who have gained a lot from this attack (not the first time they have done such attacks and definately not the last)<<

This is a tactic that has been perfected by Muslims all over the world, i.e. creating myths out of inconvenient facts. If you can't digest the fact that Muslims have behaved atrociously just turn the whole incident around and blame the victims for what has happened to them. Let us start with your prophet's actions. How many tribes did he get rid of from Madina by using just such tactics. The Banu Nadir and the Banu quraiza were got rid of by alleging they were conspiring to attack the Muslims. The constant raids on caravans for booty are all considered defensive by Muslim historians with the peaceful caravans portrayed as the offenders.

Muslim think that the New York Trade Centre attack was an elaborate Israeli plot to damage the peaceful image of Muslims. The moderate Muslims seem to forget that Muslims danced in the streets in celebration of this Zionist atrocity.

General, your inversion of blame for the Mumbai attack is the result of your following the sunnah of Muhammad. As a tactic to defame the victim it is a tired one. As a lieutenant general I would have expected you to have come up with something more original than this 1400 years old tactic.

>>a.) Interpol was shocked by indias lack of cooperation in handing over evidence<<

India has had some ‘good' experience with Intepol with regards to Dawood Ibrahim, why should they expect it to be different with the Mumbai terror suspects?

"It seems that even the Interpol is helpless when it comes to the fugitive Don Dawood Ibrahim.

Addressing a press conference in Mumbai, the Interpol chief Ronald Nobel said there is little they can do.

Mafia boss Dawood Ibrahim is a man wanted by India for 15 years. A tug of war between Interpol, the world's premier intelligence agency and Pakistan, where the fugitive gangster allegedly enjoys sanctuary.

It is a standoff that boils down to Dawood's Karachi residence.

In a special notice issued in April 2006, Dawood's address listed on the Interpol website was Karachi. And though Pakistan has asked the agency to delete the address, Interpol clearly hasn't.

Instead, Interpol chief Ronald Nobel throws the ball back in Pakistan's court.

"If sovereign countries like this do something, this man would have been caught," said Ronald Nobel, Secretary-General, Interpol.

>>b.) it took almost 1 month for india to fabricate..AHEM -- hand over the evidence to Pakistan. 1 month!! Why are Pakistani investigators being denied access to the crime scene?<<

You except that India rush the investigation so that many loose ends remain and then you can crow that you have been given no evidence. Pakistan is doing it even now despite the US, the UK also pointing out that there is sufficient evidence for it to act against the terror groups.

>>strange indians....same people whose intelligence RAW has been secretly arming Taliban (same people who attack international forces in Afghanistan) in an effort to de-stabilize nuclear Pakistan. Tsk tsk<<

You excel yourself as a strategic thinker, General.

Here in India we see our intelligence agencies as inefficient and ridden with political appointees. But reading your post I think we Indians have been fooled by RAW into thinking that. They seem to have done a marvelous job in Kabul in having the Taliban/Al Qaeda bomb our embassy. They also did a nice job at the Marriot Hotel in Pakistan, not to speak of getting rid of Benazir. Another believer on this blog, bayezid, seems think that HuJI-B is the brainchild of India. You have woken us up to the fact that Indian intelligence agencies are doing a great job protecting us by bombing our embassy, bombing our trains, bombing our cities…..

Now I am beginning to suspect the ISI is an offshoot of RAW. Intelligence is all about wheels within wheels within wheels…… LOL

Regards,

Plato
