Terrible tragedy! My prayers are with those who are living through this as we speak.

I heard that - SO messed up.
That's the thing with terrorism...it knows no bounds.

Remember the tragedy in the Russian school... horrific.

Default This is not a tragedy

This is Barbarism: Cruel, Malicious, and Evil.

A tragedy is an accident or Act of God where no human action is to blame, and no person can be faulted.

Please call it a massacre, butchery, or carnage, but please don't call it a tragedy. That word has the effect of relieving the perpetrators of their guilt, and over time has the tendency to diminish the righteous outrage decent people should feel over the crime these killers have committed.

No need to smuggle anything. They`re `Home grown`..This is not unusual either for the area. Because Westerners seem to have been targeted on this occasion the world is taking an interest...

This is such a tragedy and so sad. My husband has stayed at the Taj Mahal Hotel in the past when he had business with Kingfisher Airlines. He came home shaken up last night because he had been on the phone with the Seattle office VP who was in India at the time, but fortunately opted to stay at the Grand Hyatt this time instead of the Taj. He has been on the phone today to make sure the guy is still ok.

My prayers are with the families of the injured and dead and for a quick resolution to this.
