Apparently there has been 102 deaths from this bomb, in

As Adnan Khan sifted through the rubble in this northwest Pakistani village Saturday, his grief mingled with a sense of disbelief. Of the 102 people killed by a pair of suicide bombers here the day before, 10 were his relatives. Aunts, uncles, cousins — all perished in the deadliest attack in Pakistan this year.

said anti-militant tribal elders were the target, it was dozens of ordinary men and women who bore the brunt of the strike. Many had lined up nearby to pick up donated food and goods such as farm equipment when the blasts occurred.

The attack wounded 168 other people.

These terrorists are getting much better at their "trade" every day. They practice in their home countries and will eventually carry out these extremely deadly attacks in western countries. These bombings are causing a lot of casualties in a small market area. Imagine if these terrorists set off a bomb in a high traffic area of a major city in the U.S. or U.K.

The problem is that some of these terrorists that are attacking Pakistan aren't even from that country. Most of these terrorists are coming from across the border with Afghanistan. Most of these attacks that you hear of in these small Pakistani towns occur when a lot of people are gathered together, like a community gathering. When it occurs at something like that, then yes the casualties will be high. That is why these attacks are happening where they are.

Yes, eventually an attack or attacks like this may start taking place even here in the states or in the United Kingdom. When they do, it is going to cause mass casualties where they occur. Scary part is that these attacks do not have to occur in the major metropolitan areas. For all that we know, it could happen anywhere in the United States. Sorry to say this Jess, it could happen in Detroit or Windsor, it could happen in Charleston, W.Va., or even in Nashville, Tennessee.

The next attack is not too far off from happening.

The question should be.........

Where will it happen?

Suicide bombers improve their skills with practice? Ive heard a few stupid things before ...

Also, this is Pakistan - this is likely related to the issues with Kashmir, and are totally unrelated to anything US - unless the US goes poking their nose in.

That is my question as well.
Just exactly how do suicide bombers perfect their trade through practice? I just don't see how a suicide bomber would have more than one chance to successfully blow themselves and countless other innocent bystanders more than one time.

Fifty fifty chance that this is strictly due to the conflict between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. This could be going on as a means to get Pakistan and India to go to war so that some extremist group could overrun Pakistan, India, or both countries at the same time. If that were to happen, then it could mean serious trouble for the United States, Great Britain, or any one of our Allies.

With that being said, we can only speculate as to when and where the next attack will occur over in here in the States. For all we know, the next attack could already be planned and ready to go.
