Mumbai Attacks

Lately I've read a lot of blogs and heard a lot of people talk about this as precision attack, and I'm dumbfounded.  The terrorists did a crappy job and I'm glad, but thanks to airheaded media they were successful.  Kill foreigners to get it on CNN and the BBC, and suddenly india is one of the most dangerous places in the world, congratulations assholes with guns, terror achieved.

This wasn't a crack team acting with surgical precision, it was a bunch of yahoos with weapons that'd make your average nutjob survivalist chuckle.  The violence was little better than random otherwise many more than 200 would have died.  The fact that only 200 died suggests that the security response was actually pretty damn effective. I'm just sad that stuff like this makes people comfortable with giving up civil liberties for cleverly named "safety measures" like the patriot act.
