The only terrorist captured alive after the Mumbai massacre has given police the first full account of the extraordinary events that led to it – revealing he was ordered to ‘kill until the last breath’.
Azam Amir Kasab, 21, from Pakistan, said the attacks were meticulously planned six months ago and were intended to kill 5,000 people.
He revealed that the ten terrorists, who were highly trained in marine assault and crept into the city by boat, had planned to blow up the Taj Mahal Palace hotel after first executing British and American tourists and then taking hostages.
Mercifully, the group, armed with plastic explosives, underestimated the strength of the
105-year-old building’s solid foundations.
As it is, their deadly attacks have left close to 200 confirmed dead, with the toll expected to rise to nearly 300 once the hotel has been fully searched by security forces.

Mumbai attacks: 300 feared dead as full horror of the terrorist attacks emerges
Piles of bodies were found yesterday ...
... after commandos stormed the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the last of three buildings that terrorists had occupied in the city. Three terrorists were killed in the battle.
The Sunday Telegraph was given the details of a secret interrogation report based on an interview with the surviving terrorist. The 19-year-old suspect, who lived near the Pakistani city of Multan, is said to have joined Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the Islamist fundamentalist group, a year ago. He is alleged to have confessed that he received weapons instruction at a training camp in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The plot is said to have been planned from there. A group then made a reconnaissance of Bombay earlier this year.
India believes a Pakistani merchant ship was used to transport some, or all, of the terrorists before they seized control of a fishing trawler to reach Mumbai (Bombay). The final leg of their journey was completed in inflatable boats.

Armed Police Would Not Fire Back
The gunmen were terrifyingly professional, making sure at least one of them was able to fire their rifle while the other reloaded. By the time he managed to capture the killer on camera, Mr D'Souza had already seen two gunmen calmly stroll across the station concourse shooting both civilians and policemen, many of whom, he said, were armed but did not fire back. "I first saw the gunmen outside the station," Mr D'Souza said. "With their rucksacks and Western clothes they looked like backpackers, not terrorists, but they were very heavily armed and clearly knew how to use their rifles.
"Towards the station entrance, there are a number of bookshops and one of the bookstore owners was trying to close his shop," he recalled. "The gunmen opened fire and the shopkeeper fell down."
But what angered Mr D'Souza almost as much were the masses of armed police hiding in the area who simply refused to shoot back. "There were armed policemen hiding all around the station but none of them did anything," he said. "At one point, I ran up to them and told them to use their weapons. I said, 'Shoot them, they're sitting ducks!' but they just didn't shoot back."

As it turns out,Bollywood_Stars_Want_Their_Country_To_Win, unlike so many Hollywood Stars, who just blame there country. Their movie stars want them to take out the Jihadists.
Here's the source article from theCalcutta_NewsNet. And finally,
Here's a couple of related stories about India that might make you feel good. As it turns out, Bollywood_Stars_Want_Their_Country_To_Win, unlike so many Hollywood Stars, who just blame there country. Their movie stars want them to take out the Jihadists. Here's the source article from the Calcutta_NewsNet. I sent these articles to Bosch, Citizen Warrior, And Babbazee. I would have sent them to you as well, but I don't know your email. Things may be bad in India right now, but apparently, at least their movies stars know whose side they should be on.
Now what does that make you think?
Your welcome. I'm glad you liked the articles on Bollywood and the War on Terror.
Typical Indian bluster, full of sound and fury but signifying nothing. Don't get your hopes up that India will back up the tough words with an all-out war. More likely, India will pull its punches. Its gutless politicians have to appease the large Mohammedan minority in its midst in order to stay in power. That will be India's Achille's heel as long as it wants to keep up the pretense of being a democratic nation.
I don't know much about Indian politics, but I'm guessing you're right.
Why should we expect them to be any different than Europe, or from us?
We can no longer ignore or wish away the reality of what it is going to take to wake people up to the fact that we are at war. The near-total silence on the streets and in the shopping malls these past 3 days -- even as the TV endlessly loops the story -- proves that the question on Mr. and Mrs. America's minds this holiday season remains, can we spring for that $500 flat-screen for the kids' room? hell it is on sale if we can get down to Best Buy at 5 am...
Mumbai? Well that's, y'know, India, what do you expect? Can't happen here, the security is too good.
Reports are saying that only ten terrorists were involved in the on-shore attack. Ten. They planned 5,000 deaths, were short by 4,700, but still, 10 jihahists managed to kill 300 people and disrupt a major city for 3 days. On 9/11 there were 19 shaheeds and 3,000 victims. Then intended at least 10 times that many casualities, and if not for circumstance, the skill of the WTC's architect, and the courage and resourcefulness of the New York City first responders, they'd have got it.
Mumbai may represent a change in tactics, but the real change will come when such an attack is staged with a nuclear device involved, and when the body count approximates that of a "real" war. That is the sort of event that will create the "tipping point" where reality overwhelms the "War on Terror" fantasy and people begin to acknowledge what it really is. That should have happened on 9/11/01, or this week, people should be as aware that we are at war as they were in December 1941. But it will take more.
It shouldn't have to happen this way, but what hope is there, realistically, that it won't?
If it had been the no-nonsense Indira Gandhi in charge, I have no doubt that she would have ordered a full-scale war, nukes and all, to settle the score once and for all without any equivocation. But the present crop of meek, careerist Indian politicians? I have great doubts about their courage. Millions of civilians will perish directly and indirectly from the nuclear blasts. Millions more will perish in Hindu-Muslim killing sprees. If things get out of hand, the country will be forced to impose martial law and become a military dictatorship. How willing are they to go down that road? As I write, Indian newspaper columnists are already questioning the will of their politicians to declare war. For effective action to repulse Islam, look to authoritarian countries that don't give a toss about world opinion and do not hesitate to exercise unrestrained brutality, like China and Russia.
Whats wrong with you fuckin people...why dont you just join the kkk you cow fuckers.

We're Racists? Since when? This site has nothing to with race. Islam is not a race, its a religion. We are not trying to murder any race or group of innocent people. We are trying to protect liberty and maybe, just maybe, save the lives of a few innocent people of any race, from Jihadists.
