Another crazy extemist and his bomb blew up today. Apparently it was at a gathering around a Muslim shrine.


"An AP photographer at the shrine counted at least 20 bodies, many of them in pieces scattered over about 50 yards, making it hard to give an exact figure. An intelligence official who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of his position said at least 20 people were killed and 150 were wounded.

"None of the bodies was intact," said Dr. Wahid Abbas, who helped treat the wounded. "Some had legs blown off. Some had their hands blown off."

Mukhtar Kazmi, running a free clinic at the shrine for the five-day annual festival, said it treated about 200 people.

"It was like hell," said worshipper Syed Muktar Hussain Shah, 40. "I fell down ... when I woke up I saw dead bodies around me."

I can't help but wonder what the motive here is. I understand the bombings geared toward Americans and their troops, but this? The article also stated that nobody has claimed responsibility as of yet. This is tragic to say the least. The article does state a possible motive being a difference in religious views.

Now this is a war crime! Will we ever see justice for this? i doubt it. It seems possible that the reporter knew of the attack and stood by so he could get some photos. They both should be charged with war crimes.

This is final proof pro-US suicide bombers exist, just what we've been discussing in the other threads :




...
Shiite worshippers, weeping and moaning, beat their chests in grief. Some clashed with police after officers charged the crowd with their batons to clear the way for ambulances.

Many also chanted, "Down with America!"
...


Which prompts the reinterpretation of terrorist bombings in Iraq, commonly attributed by the pentagon to the iraqi resistance.

Supposedly this kind of thing goes on all the time. I wouldn't rule out anything at this point! The article states, however:

"Sectarian attacks are common in Pakistan. Sunnis make up about 80 percent of its 150 million people, and Shiites about 17 percent. Most live peacefully together, but extremist elements on both sides have a violent agenda. The schism dates back to a 7th century dispute over who was the true heir to the Prophet Mohammed."

Still, it's really only a guess at this point.

I fail to see how such an action can be construed as favorable to the US.

...and how precisely does not 'reinterpet' a terrorist bombing?

Various MUSLIM groups are bent on the destruction of others vying for influence, former Baathists wish the subjugation of all of them in favor of a secular Iraq as under Saddam.... foreign elements from throughout the peaceful world of ISLAM stream into Iraq to kill westerners

Again, what is favorable to the US in any of this?

the reason they blame America for the bombing is because America didnt protect the Shiites.

It's all America's fault.....We're responsible for every bad thing that happens in the world.....Its even Americas fault when there are solar flares, we are trying to cause skin cancer and kill off everyone else. Never mind when the tste flies bite.....those are all controlled by the evil BUSH and Co.

I realize that the ATS forums are for people to express their ideals, but when it comes to certain topics, like the above example, people are very naive and stupid.

Funny
Maybe people blame America for a lot more than they should. In fact, I'm sure they do. Of course, America has its hands in a lot of "cookie jars." I'm not certain America is responsible for this bombing. I do feel it was a horrible thing for someone to do but aside from the fact that it happened, the rest is speculation.
