Rescue operation underway

At this hour, Indian commandoes have raided a Jewish culural center in Mumbai besieged by terrorists. Israelis are believed to be among the hostages and some are reported to be freed.

This dramatic photo from Reuters India shows the rescuers drop into the building from a helicopter.

I need to give my thoughts on attack like this by fundamentalists is almost unheard of. The most similar event I can think of is the 2004 Beslan School Siege in Southern Russia. I have been hearing repeatedly that the terrorists came in from the sea, as if this situation is not disurbing enough.

India is a great country...I trust its brave security forces are doing everything they can to bring this tragedy to a close.

May God protect these brave soldiers.

I wonder if this is the semi-expected attack between our election and Jan 20th? Or is this just another in a long line of terrorist activities not likely to end any time soon? God help us and the world. I hope NObama is up to the task to deal with it, but I have my serious reservations that he will be.

I have my doubts too, AA. Some voters got it in their head that the election of Obama would pacify savages like these, but its only exacerbated the situation. Last week, Al-Qaeda released a video tape filled with racist rants against Obama.
