There was a couple of exchange of small arms fire and even ROCKETS a couple of days ago on the India-Pakistan border... tensions were high...

And now this...

So let's hope this is not the work of Pakistan-backed terrorists like Mumbai otherwise things are gonna get ugly... and fast... after Mumbai, many Indian politicians wanted war with Pakistan...

Great.

Watch tensions rise as the Indians accuse the ISI (Probabley correctly) of involvement in this attack.

So we have this, N and S Korean threats of war, an apparent war coming up in the Middle East over the summer between Israel and any combination of their mulititude of enemies.

Unstable times.

Also... Katla might go off. Oil spill + hurricanes. Economy going down the drain.

2010 looks even more crappier than 2009... nice.

That's weird. Why wouldn't someone just blow themselves up on the train.

Maybe you're right. Who knows? They probably wanted to get away somehow.

Yeah ... Is it me or is there a strange cluster of disasters occurring? Kinda like the world is getting backed into a corner and not being given a chance to recover?

Terrorist attack? Guess we will have to wait and see.

Heres a link to the BBC's

Story:news.bbc.co.uk...

*Off topic* but I'm watching BBC at the moment and they just claimed that hurricane season is going to be the worst on record.

Off the top of my head I'd say that by derailing the trains the lines are shut down for longer.

A suicide blast would damage a train and be a mess, but derailing a train causes WAY more damage and disruption to services. Not only does the wreckage need to be cleaned up, but then they have to rebuild a section of the line as well.

It wasn't long ago that Maoist rebels blew up a bus full of police reinforcements & civilians in India.

Blowing up a train track sounds like a similar MO, so maybe its nothing to do with Pakistan.

So, BBC Radio 5 Live have just reported the death toll is now 30 & expected to rise as there are thought to be people trapped in 3 crushed carriages. They also added that Maoists have blown up sections of track in that area (W Bengal) before.
Pretty stupid for a populist movement to destroy a passenger train...

It was derailed by Naxalites. It was a internal problem. 30 people killed and about 150 injured. The government of India is not taking proper action because it is leaded by Sonia Gandhi a.k.a Antonia Maino . She is a former K.G.B agent and now the leader of ruling party. She has all the powers. So India as well is headed for doom. She is an Italian and infiltrated Indian politics by marrying a important member from the biggest political family. Her husband was assasinated and it is also suspected her involvement in this. But with government in her hands nobody can do anything against her and people who know this cant do anything. So it is unavoidable and can expect more acts of such internal and external terrorism in the coming days.

Forty dead after 'sabotage' derails Indian train


At least 40 people have died in a rail crash in a Maoist area of India which was blamed on an act of sabotage.

A passenger train derailed in West Bengal's West Midnapore district because of a broken plate connecting the ends of two rails, a rail official said.

It then came into the path of another train coming in the opposite direction.

The area is known to be a stronghold of Maoist rebels.

Early reports spoke of an explosion derailing the passenger train.

The rebels have called for observance of a "black week" from Friday to Wednesday in the five states, including West Bengal, where they wield considerable influence.

But officials say it is too early to say if the Maoists are to blame.

The number of dead was expected to rise after the incident early on Friday. Nearly 150 passengers have been injured.


Doesn't look good, especially if these rebels get backing from Pakistan tribal areas.
