Islama-very-bad, Pakistan

Posted by redsatellite on September 22, 2008

Not only were scores of innocent people murdered and injured, but if you can believe this report, it could’ve been FAR worse.

Pakistan’s president, prime minister and other Cabinet members were supposed to have been at the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad when a massive truck bomb detonated outside, killing 57 and injuring 266, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik said Monday.

The Speaker of the House, Fahmida Mirza, had planned the event for ministers, the president, their guests and various foreign dignitaries.

But at the last minute, President
Asif Ali Zardari asked that the event be transferred to the Prime Minister’s compound, Malik told reporters during a handover service for Czech Ambassador Ivo Zdarek, who died in the blast.

British Airways temporarily suspended its flights to Islamabad Sunday as a result of the security situation, according to an airline spokeswoman who did not want to be named.

Can you imagine what would’ve happened? Are you kidding me? All of Pakistan would’ve gone into COMPLETE CHAOS.

No arrests have been made in connection with the attack. But Malik said suspicion is falling on militants in Pakistan‘s tribal regions. “I am not in a position to tell you who has done it, but (in) all the previous investigations, all the roads have gone to South Waziristan,” he said Sunday.

South Waziristan is one of seven agencies of Pakistan’s tribal areas where
Taliban and al Qaeda militants are active.

The poison in this area of the world is not only incomprehensible- but unending.
