Same same but different


John Miller, at the Corner, sees the parallels and the perpendicular.

UPDATE

Obama has certainly brought change more of the same to Washington.

When President-elect Barack Obama introduces his national security team on Monday, it will include two veteran cold warriors and a political rival whose records are all more hawkish than that of the new president who will face them in the White House Situation Room.

Sweeping shift of priorities (next paragraph in link – be bothered to read it), but. Yep. OK. Whatever.

NEWSBREAK! Old man changes outlook!!! Oooooookay.

The irony is, of course, is that this is actually a good thing and Team Obama is starting to seem OK.

India: we are with you


Our fates were first sealed with a handshake. Now they are sealed in blood.

UPDATE

Now get trained up.

UPDATE II

Bush assures help.

UPDATE III

It’s war.

Lataan blames Blair


Over 500 people have been tortured, killed and/or injured, yet Damian Lataan sees fault in Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt.

In cold blood


”It was apparent that most of the dead were tortured.”

In cold blood? Or are these islamofascists passionate about their work?

Killer fears death


Coward.

The only terrorist captured alive after the Mumbai massacre has given police the first full account of the extraordinary events that led to it – revealing he was ordered to ‘kill until the last breath’.

Once inside Nair Hospital, Kasab, who suffered only minor injuries, told medical staff: ‘I do not want to die. Please put me on saline.’

One doubts India will show much mercy, though. They’re furious.

UPDATE

The cricket’s off.

UPDATE II

An image problem?

The only good thing…



Live Earth concert in Mumbai cancelled.

Well, at least the AGW crusaders have some decency.

It’s over


With almost 500 people killed or wounded, and 11 terrorists dead, finally, after 60 hours, the Mumbai attacks have ceased.

A total of 195 people are confirmed to have been killed and 295 others wounded. Twenty-two foreigners were killed, included the Israelis, five Americans, two French nationals, two Australians, two Canadians, a German, a Japanese, a British Cypriot, an Italian, a Singaporean and a Thai.

An attack on the West, and on us all indeed.

Of course, Anthony Loewenstein might have a different take on this.
