Kaos in Karachi – A Disaster In The Making?

Seven bomb blasts rocked the city yesterday. Seven is quite a number!

Over 40 people have been injured and several killed. The intelligence sources claimed that the attacks were targeting a specific language speaking group and aimed to create unrest and rouse ethnic violence. For those who lost their loved ones or had to suffer through the turmoils, it doesn’t matter why this was done. They want those responsible brought down and made an example out of.

But where do we go from here?

Over in Islamabad, news has come in that they have found the head of the suicide bomber! Good for you Islamabad. What’s next?

You don’t know?

Oh wait ok… why am I not surprised? Perhaps because that is the end of our investigating capabilities? The head has been found… the case is closed!

Round of applause everyone… promote a few officers and let’s be done with it!

It’s an irony that in the face of such brutal and frequent terrorism, there is little that has ever come to light about these bomb blasts and suicide bombers themselves ever. If those behind the assassination of a prominent leader such as Benazir Bhutto can not be traced out, what to talk of these recent blasts in Islamabad and Karachi! We are at war with a cunning enemy who lives within our walls and we don’t have the means to counter his moves.

Pakistan WILL crumble from withing if this continues.

Already there are rumors circulating about a possible Pakistani hand in the Indian Embassy bombing in Kabul that killed 40 and left well over a 100 wounded. Is it sheer coincidence that the Karachi blasts came merely 10-15 hours after the Kabul attack? Was this a  back-lash by India or Afghanistan or is there a third group that staged the two bombings to create misunderstandings between the three countries?

The attacks in Islamabad, in Karachi and the one in Kabul must not be ruled out as separate incidents. The frequency and timing of these attacks are all too closely aligned to be dismissed as a potential lead. The seven bombs that ripped through Karachi yesterday clearly were a part of the plan that was put in a hurry. That is why it resulted in more wounded than dead. Here’s your biggest lead!

Try giving the nation something more than ‘look! We found the head!’

You can play football with it for all we care!

    You can not dismiss a foreign hand in this dirty act. Even so it is now known that the bombs were locally made but there are bigger and more evil forces behind the bombings in afghanistana and karachi who will not give peace a chance.

    Also the current running government is absolutely not up to the terrorism challenge. They are constantly switching between talks and military actions and don’t know what to make of the taliban threat. It’s all too simple for taliban really. They know now that pressure tactics work with this new government. And not only them, this is a signal to any one who wants to put pressure on Pakistan. they only have to let their guns do the talking.

    Yup, from the looks of how the attcks in Karachi happened, they seemed to be put together at the eleventh hour. Still, precious lives were lost and thats sad. I think it was also wrong of some people to start pelting stones at police mobiles and stations. I heard there were incidents of firing in some areas too. Thats precisely what they want, to put Pakistanis against each other. Don’t let that happen.

    interesting indeed, it may seem slightly outlandish to claim that outsiders are involved, but hey we shouldn’t rule that out as a possibility!
    1) american journalists for time magazine have in a very smug manner admitted to their govt having helped pakistan’s dissent into it’s recent state of affairs. it’s divide and conquer in all its glory here.

    2) i know i came across some indian writers’ articles stating their predictions that pakistan will not last beyond 2008, it was shocking and upsetting when i read such negative stuff back in 2006 but it’s seems those ‘predictions’ are becoming very true.

    and yet according to some, we’re ‘foolish’ and ‘simplistic’ if we fear there’s an outisde force involved?? are we??
