US warns of 'imminent' attacks in India

The United States has warned its citizens of possible "imminent" attacks by militants on New Delhi, as the Indian police are put on high alert.

Press TV, 1 May 2010

"There are increased indications that terrorists are planning imminent attacks in New Delhi," said a statement on the US embassy's website.

On Saturday, the Canadian and Australian missions in India followed similar warnings, cautioning their nationals against visiting certain parts of the country and avoid crowded shopping areas.

The new warnings suggest that a terrorist attack could be carried out in busy market places within the coming days or weeks.

The Indian Home Ministry says it is aware of the threats while the government has put its police force on high alert.

New Delhi has often blamed Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for aiding militant groups carrying out attacks in India. Islamabad has denied the charges.

The old rivals have a history of mistrust and have fought three wars since their independence from Britain in 1947.

And it surely knows what it is talking about, at it most likely footed the bill for the Israeli Mossad attack like the one in Mumbai!

Did you follow the development of the attacks on the Mumbai hotels as shown by CNN and its anchor person Becky Anderson?

You can probably find the coverage on U Tube.  It was like straight out of the absurd play "The Bald Soprano" by Eugene Ionesco.  In this play a fire brigade officer rings the bell of an elderly couple to ask whether they have a fire developing in their apartment.  As this is not the case the officer is visibly disappointed and asks whether they do not have a fire, just a little one?

Becky Anderson follows the absurd Ionesco script and insists for 20 minutes or more that there must be hostages in Mumbai, and she is visibly disappointed when the spokesman for the Indian government in a telephone interview tells her that there is no indication of any hostage taking!

In Ionesco's absurd play there is no happy end for the fire brigade officer as there is no fire in the appartment, big or small, but Becky did better than that, and her hard efforts were richly rewarded when eventually there were reports of hostages! 

She was in the category of first class media whores who in their efforts were just too far ahead of their script, just like BBC in its reporting of the collapse of Building Seven.

So better take care, they know what they are talking about because the produced the script and they paid the bills to make it all happen!
