Its just news. Not a news flash. Can't be THAT important.
 
2007-02-19 03:45:13 AM
was the train pissed off about the current union contract or something?
 
2007-02-19 03:46:44 AM
Authorities said two suitcases packed with unexploded crude bombs and bottles of gasoline were found in cars not hit in the attack, leading them to suspect the fire was set off by an identical explosive device.

"This is an act of sabotage," Railway Minister Laloo Prasad told reporters in Patna, India.


You think?

That's a terrible tragedy. I couldn't sleep, decided to check what was happening and man, this is depressing.

My heart goes to the victims and their families, whoever they are

FTFA: "This is an act of sabotage," Railway Minister Laloo Prasad told reporters in Patna, India. "This is an attempt to derail the improving relationship between India and Pakistan."


This is exactly what I was wondering If had happened or not.
As far as I know there havent been any major (or even minor) skirmishes between Pakistan and India for quite a while. If that's the case, then there may be a remote possibility of some sort of stability and complete ceasing of hostility in that area. Plus I think with the history, and in some cases actual blood relations, that these two countries share coming from the same country, could possibly aid in stabilizing the region. It is a Long-shot, but it could happen.


If that happened, well it wouldnt exactly be a mortal blow to the terrorists, but it would make life a lot more difficult for them since India and Pakistan wouldnt be guarding against each other, but against terrorists in the area. Which essentially would mean another possible battle ground for them.
.....That is if they continued with these attacks in preference to laying low for a while.

Sure, we did, at least until the marsh-mellow stealing ferret chase into the garbage disposal.
You know you wouldnt think a garbage disposal would do anything to a soul now would you.

Oh yeah, alphabetical. India loses again.

Rule of thumb.....
When things start making sense it means you need to drink more.

Obviously the problem.

some of whom became trapped when a train door was fused shut by the heat of the flames.

You really are a attention-deficit 'tard. Hundreds are killed in Kashmir every single week.

Pakistan is terror central and provides military, logistical, financial and moral support to all kinds of Islamic terrorists.

The entire reason they create the Taliban in the first place was to better wage jihad against India.

Wow, I always knew that they rode on top of trains but I've never seen one with so many people. Crazy bastards.

Something is rotten in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan :

Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is taking good care of its "guests" - 1993 Mumbai blasts's prime accused Ibrahim Abdul Razzaq Memon, better known as Tiger Memon, and Patel Javed Dawood alias Javed Chikna. The agency spends a whopping $300,000 (Rs 1.32 crore) per annum on Chikna's "maintenance", according to top Dawood aide Abdul Qayyum Shaikh, who was recently deported and is in the custody of the Crime Branch.

Seriously folks, WTF is wrong with people??? That had to be the most awful way to die, trapped in a crowded farkin raging inferno! A special place in hell is reserved for people that do that shiat... They should have that done to them, every day over and over for eternity!

Make all the jokes you like about overcrowded trains in India (this stereotype is partly true), but this is terrible. I can't imagine being one of the people who were trapped in the burning car with the sealed door. I feel sadness for the families of the victims, and hope they get the perps.

/loved train travel in southern India despite the squishing
//met lots of interesting people

In China there are hundreds of mirrions of people riding trains to visit family for Chinese New Year and you don't see accidents reported. Chinese are just better than Indians.

Damn sectarian and ethnic violence.

Talk about the moron calling the kettle stoopid.
First off the Taliban was formed in Afghanistan by a group of multi-national "mujahideen" who were originally there under Al-Qaedas direction fighting Russia.
The Taliban (pops).


And where in the holy hell of all idiocy ever seen on fark that you seem determined to beat, did you get an idea like Pakistan funding Terrorism???
Pakistans problem, and the USA's issue with Pakistan stem from Pakistans inability to get rid of terrorist that are knowingly hiding in their border. This doesnt mean they are supporting terrorist, it means they are either not able to remove them, or are unwilling to start a conflict with the terrorist groups there in an attempt to remove them.

Or are you gonna try to tell me we're living in crazy world where terrorist bomb the terrorist state (pops) thats supposedly supporting them.
Oh, and in reality Pakistan has been, and currently is fighting directly against islamic terrorist groups.

And whats all this mean?
Well basically that your an ignorant know nothing dumbass trying to pass himself off as a life-form slightly above a jellyfish.

/In the future....before telling someone that they're wrong you may want to actually know what the hell your talking about.
//Who knows, it might even save you from looking like a complete and total Dumbfuk.

Yup. 3 non-brown people trump 67 brown ones on the other side of the world. Welcome to America. I'd post a screenshot but everyone can see it for themselves.

It seems that ugly racism and hypernationalism are not uniquely american traits after all.

This is very sad. The tensions between India and Pakistan are needless.

One would have to be a drooling retard to think racism and nationalism were uniquely American traits.
