Yes, it's that time again, folks - it's time to imbibe that 'Mumbai Spirit' once more (ie. suffer another terror bombing.) You see, the more time that goes by, the more the ruling govt in New Delhi and its partners in Islamabad get very itchy to have another one. In the previous Mumbai attacks, it took the ruling govt practically no time at all to blame it on 'Hindutva fanatics', with Rajdeep Sardesai and Barking Mutt rushing to claim that Hemant Karkare was a 'sekoolar' hero gunned down by 'saffron militants' for investigating them over the Samjauta train blasts.
A Washington Post blog says that these blasts are in fact occurring on Kasab's birthday.
Meanwhile, Stratfor's Reva Bhalla claims it had to be the handiwork of local 'homegrown' jihadis, because Pakistan's Lashkar-e-Taiba is allegedly 'defunct'. How does she figure that LeT is defunct? Well, because the current bad state of US relations with Pakistan would suffer complications if Pakistan were to be faulted for these blasts. Concerns guiding a conclusion - sounds like backward analysis to me.
