Im sure everyone has heard about the triple bombing earlier today that killed 21 and injured over 100. Now it seems that many Indians are blaming Pakistani militants with possible ISI relations.

In Mumbai’s shattered streets, enraged Indians blamed Pakistani-linked Islamic jihadists.

If, as many suspect, Wednesday’s attackers are eventually linked to Pakistan, it will plunge South Asia into a new and dangerous crisis

Islamabad’s shaky government was already reeling from internal strife and outside accusations that its security services continue to play a double game – giving clandestine support to violent Islamic extremists even as they claim to be at the forefront of the war against terrorism.

Pakistan is already in a pretty serious turmoil right now, then this happens.

There already is some suspicion of who is involved.

Still much early suspicion fell on Lashkar-e-Taiba, the extremist group with ties to Pakistan’s shadowy and powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

ISI related?

Here's a few recent articles about the ISI relations to terrorist activities

Pakistan intelligence services 'aided Mumbai terror attacks'

Pakistan's powerful intelligence services were heavily involved in preparations for the Mumbai terrorist attacks of November 2008, according to classified Indian government documents obtained by the Guardian

US Links Pakistan's ISI to Journalist's Murder

The US has obtained classified intelligence that shows that Pakistan’s ISI spy agency ordered the killing of journalist Saleem Shahzad, senior administration officials tell the New York Times. Several officials say the intelligence is reliable and conclusive, with one calling the ISI’s actions “barbaric and unacceptable.”

US cables likened ISI to Taliban, al-Qaeda: Wikileaks

US authorities described Pakistan's ISI intelligence agency as a "terrorist" organisation, according to a leaked US document.

Last week, the US military's top officer, Adm Mike Mullen, accused the ISI of having links with the Taliban

With what the ISI has been doing, I would believe they were behind todays attacks

So India, who is backed by NATO, retaliates against Pakistan, who is backed by China, right as Pakistan is in the process of kicking the US out. timing is everything

Nice link. This is indeed truly frightening. The whole region is a fire just waiting to happen... India hates Pakistan and vice versa. Pakistan was behind the previous attacks as well as the ISI. I wonder honestly if this attack somehow has something to do with the 800 million the US is now not handing over to Pakistan (which was announced earlier this week). Keep in mind these are two nuclear states.. this has the potential to get very ugly. I have seen various predictions over the years that these will be the countries/states that do indeed use Nukes on each other. I pray that is not the case.

Ya this could get bad real fast if they doo indeed find out Pakistan is responsible. With tensions so high already it wouldn't surprise me if Pakistan is blamed regardless. All we can really do is see if diplomacy has a chance of resolving this, but I think that point has already passed.

False Flag attack bombing......staging this attack at the right time to get India involved with Pakistan in conflict and hopefully drag China into the foray....

Sit back and think for a second who has the most to gain from such a predicament?

You dont have to be Einstein to work it out

Look on the bright side, if they get into a knock down drag out the next support person you hear on the phone may not have an Indian accent and we can save a few billion in military aid to Pakistan.

On the other hand if they start lobbing nukes at each other:

It may be good for the economy of who ever supplies arms to either side.

We could roll into Pakistan to clean out the terrorists and the remnants of their military and ISI.

Since India is so densely populated it's a good start on depopulation.

We could get drawn into an Asian war and forget about our problems as the country moves to a war footing and mobilization for the war effort much like it did in WW2. Heck, we may even get to see some of the new fancy technology we think the government is hiding.

The timing certainly is interesting. Drag India back into the game of brinkmanship, and it will force the US to take action.

This looks like a buildup for something larger.

The last attack on India about triggered a war.

I don't believe this is a false flag. No country in their right mind would gamble with these two nuclear armed neighbors going nuclear on each other.

Pakistan and India are rivals since their split from the British empire. Pakistan military is long known to have elements sympathetic to a more rigid form of Islam. And as it was previously stated, India itself believes Pakistani intelligence was complicit if not outright responsible in the Mumbai hotel assault.

There will be tremendous pressure for the Indian government to act, perhaps militarily.
