The Bollywood Mermaids.

I do not know what has come over me. I just finished a post on Geishas and now am on the topic of Mermaids...Must be some Bionic woman in the air.

But these mermaids are not just ordinary mermaids, they are male mermaids, with beards and machine guns, well at least according to the Mumbai police commissioner.

Seriously now, could not let this story go by just like that.

I was about to log off when I spotted this latest piece of news from AP. You can read it HERE. It is hilarious.

Let's have a laugh, shall we ?

Paragraph 1 reads : "The gunmen who attacked Mumbai set out by boat from the Pakistani port of Karachi, then later hijacked an Indian fishing trawler that carried them toward this financial capital on their suicide mission, a top police official said Tuesday."

OK, so a dozen mermaids took a boat from Karachi...and in the middle of the sea, hijacked an Indian fishing trawler, undetected by radars, marine patrols and check points...They must have hijacked the boat and propelled it underwater all the way to Mumbai, uncaught. Even Walt Disney could not come up with this one.

Paragraph 2 reads : "As evidence of the militants' links to Pakistan mounted, Mumbai police commissioner Hasan Ghafoor said ex-Pakistani army officers trained the group —some for up to 18 months — and denied reports the men had been planning to escape the city"

OK so these mermaids not only managed to swim through the vast Indian ocean but they were also trained by Pakistani army officers and for 18 months. Like what did the ex-army officers do, train them to hold their breath in deep waters ? And check out the rest - "and denied reports the men had been planning to escape". So, not only they swam all the way from Karachi, but they were also intending to take up residence in Mumbai - like what exactly ? Plant a tent in the middle of the city ?

Wait it gets better.

Paragraph 3 reads : "It appears that it was a suicide attack," Ghafoor said, providing no other details about when the gunmen left Karachi, or when they hijacked the trawler."

Wait a minute here ! If it was a suicide attack why did it not happen ? Why did the mermaid hijackers move from one target to another, covering 5 altogether, and engage in gun battle for 48 hours, when all they wanted to do was blow themselves up ? What made them change their minds if they were trained to be suicide bombers ? Maybe they realized that they would rather take up residence in Mumbai and start an acting career in Bollywood.

And now Paragraph 4: This is when the plot becomes REALLY INTERESTING. When did the Indian police discover all of that ? When - "the revelations came as a senior U.S. official said India received a warning from the United States that militants were plotting a waterborne assault on Mumbai. The Bush administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of intelligence information, would not elaborate on the timing or details of the U.S. warning."

Oh so India received a high intelligence warning from the US itself, about a waterborne mermaid attack but did not pay any notice. India brushed it off, just like that. What's 20 mermaids or so attacking the financial capital ? Nah, nothing, no cause for concern.

Now look at paragraph 7 : "India stepped up the pressure on its neighbor after interrogating the only surviving attacker, who told police that he and the other nine gunmen had trained for months in camps in Pakistan operated by the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba. On Tuesday, U.S. officials also pointed the finger at Pakistani-based groups, although they did not specifically mention Lashkar"

Let me get this right. 12 mermaids hijacked an Indian fisherman's boat on a suicide mission, but then changed their minds and engaged in gun battles for 3 days, and they were all killed except one, who admitted he was trained in Pakistan. Come on now, even Alert in Malibu staring Pam Anderson, has better plots than this one.

And the rest of the script - read that:

"India's foreign intelligence agency also had warnings as recently as September that Pakistan-based terrorists were plotting attacks on Mumbai, according to a government intelligence official familiar with the matter.
The information, intercepted from telephone conversations apparently coming out of Pakistan, indicated that hotels might be targeted but did not specify which ones, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about the details.
The information was relayed to domestic security authorities, but it was unclear whether the government acted on the intelligence."

So Indian authorities were warned by high American "Intelligence", and were aware of an impending attack since September, plus they intercepted information from telephone conversations, and this information was relayed to domestic security authorities but "It was unclear whether the government acted on the intelligence" ?
Does that not sound of a duplicate of a 9/11 set up ???

And look at the rest....this one beats them all.

"The Taj Mahal hotel, scene of much of the bloodshed, had tightened security with metal detectors and other measures in the weeks before the attacks, after being warned of a possible threat. But the precautions "could not have stopped what took place, Ratan Tata, chairman of the company that owns the hotel, told CNN. "They (the gunmen) didn't come through that entrance. They came from somewhere in the back."

Hahahahahaha. So the hotel had all the security measures as my Indian friend confirmed (see my post Framing Pakistan) but we are told, that all these security measures plus all the aforehand intelligence information could not stop the mermaids, because they swam "from somewhere in the back"... hahahahahaha.

I will let you read the rest ...Pakistan's ex-army officers is mentioned more than twice, the mermaid that was interrogated admitted to all the script, was trained to scuba dive in Pakistan and handle explosives simultaneously...bla bla bla...

But this bit is not funny at all.

"Nobody is talking about military action," Mukherjee said Tuesday, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.
However, he later appeared to backtrack, telling the NDTV news channel that "every sovereign country has the right to protect its territorial integrity and take appropriate action."

And Pakistan replied by stating : "We are examining it, we are considering it, and after consultation we will give a reply," Qureshi said of the list. "We do not want to do anything which could fan tension. We want to de-escalate matters."
He said he had told India, "We will fully cooperate with you, so that we can reach the bottom."

I'll tell you what the bottom is -- a badly directed Bollywood trash with a third class Producer in Washington D.C.

I agree with you to some extent, however maintaining a little objectivity is necessary in my opinion. Otherwise how would one see the bigger plan ?

"Divide and Conquer", the problem with "democracy" in American, Pakistan and India is that it exposes too mcuh corruption by giveing too much power to the people - "Shock Doctorine" is a great book, it shows how to use terrorists and other shocks to greatly reduce democracy and give back power to the most corrupt - and it proven to evryone that it works fine in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The thing is that what happened to Ahwaz, Palastine, Afghanistan and Iraq is very easy to do, easy to copy and easy to spread - the corruption ruling America needs terrorism to limit their exposure and to stay in power and distract people from going after their corruption, it's trillions of dollars worth in corruption and they are not going to lose it for the sake of "democracy".

America, Saudi, Israel and Iran need to spread terrorism, it fules the fear and hate that keeps them in power and it also makes lots of money for them - it does not matter if you hate them, the more you hate any of their members they all make money and gain more power - they feed on your hate and fear, and the more terrorism the more hate and fear.

Mumbai bombing, the murder of Binazir Buto, 9-11 - endless list of things that make people fear and hate one another, this increases insurance rates, increases security and militery budgets, Oil control - every type of corruption gets a big boost from terrorisim. Iran's Mullas and Israel's Rabbis both get the same increase in power, and their politicans get lots more wealth - and the crime helps keep their death squads well armed and well trained.

Chose between a Red pill or a Blue pill? Both pills are exactly the same, if you hate India or hate Pakistan you are helping the corruption in American, Israel, Saudi, Iran and the corruption will thank you for the hate and fear as it makes more money and gains more territory and more power.

Pqakistan's corruption needs a major invasion or bombing to "improve" it's democracy and make it more like the democracy in Afghanistan and Iraq - the American type of democracy, Shia vs Sunni or tribe against tribe - as long as the American ariforce and American army is their to "protect" their deomcracy everyting will be just as nice as Iraq and Afghanistan.

I place not bets on Pakistan, the zionist corrupted there is much too deep, but India is a lot stronger and smarter - they have been teaching Indian kids about "divide and rule" since the Ghandi days and this has served them well since the Mumbai bombings.

As usual your writing is in poor taste and lacks intelligent analysis. Stop defending terrorists be it Saddam or your fellow Saudi sponsor Pakistani ISI who is terrorising its neighbours for years.

Yes Layla the bollywood scenes you are describing are lauhgable.

This is called predictive programming. The West has had predictive programming since day 1 TV and films were introduced.

I want to give you a compliment on your excellent choise about the art you put above your articles and the music. Awesome music I love very much.

stay strong

yes, i have my own theories about this bombing. it starts with the murder of the top anti terror cop and his squad an hr or so into the attack. they pounced out from behind a tree while they were in a moving vehicle and targeted them. what a coincidence the same cop had just recieved a death threat and had cracked open the case of the hindu extremeists who had been responsible for the attacks the month before, and in september. they were associated w/the bjp

The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Thursday invoked the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against the ten accused arrested so far in the September 29 Malegaon blast case.

One more suspect would be arrested soon, ATS chief Hemant Karkare said at a press conference.
Rebutting senior BJP leader L K Advani's charge, Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad said there was no political pressure on it in handling the Malegaon blast probe nor was there any substance in the charge that accused Lt Col P S Purohit was tortured in custody.

"There is zero political pressure and we are working professionally. Purohit has said in open court that ATS has not ill treated him," ATS head Hemant Karkare said.

Two days ago Karkare received death threats:

The Pune cyber cell officer on Tuesday received a call from an unknown caller who issued death threat to Mumbai's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare, TV channels reported.

so isn't that lucky for the hindu extremists who he arrested and their affiliates that the 'pakistan terrorists' killed their rival.

so silly me the first thing i think of is how i know the US is ever so hankering to go apeshit in pak due to baluchistan and they really want to break away that region, the pipeline and all that so i think to myself 'exactly how is this going to be used to get the american public to think it is the right move to escalate in pak.

check this out

US sets stage for strikes if Pak does not act

gee, ya think.

i also wonder about this reuters story from the 28th

Police said at least seven attackers were killed and nine suspects taken into custody. Twelve policemen were killed, including the chief of Mumbai's anti-terrorist squad.

9? where did they go?

then there's this from rediff

the bodies of the terrorists were beyond recognition. “Their faces were beyond recognition.”

There was no way of identifying them

that's convenient. here's more convenience times of india

US, UK, Israel ramp up intelligence aid to India

WASHINGTON: Unprecedented intelligence cooperation involving investigating agencies and spy outfits of India, United States, United Kingdom and Israel has got underway to crack the method and motive behind the Mumbai terrorist massacre, now widely blamed on Islamist radicals who appeared to have all four countries on their hit list when they arrived on the shores of India.

Investigators, forensic analysts, counter-terrorism experts and spymasters from agencies the four countries are converging in New Delhi and Mumbai to put their heads, resources, and skills together to understand the evolving nature of the beast.

check out 03 strange bedfellows more rediff.

The BJP, and more broadly, the Sangh Parivar, has an acute and long-standing Israel obsession. Establishing full relations with Israel was always a distinctive part of the Jana Sangh-BJP's agenda. Indeed, when RSS chief Balasaheb Deoras was asked in late 1991 -- after India's turn towards economic neoliberalism -- what's the one thing he wanted from the soft-on-the-BJP Narasimha Rao government, he unhesitatingly answered: full-scale relations with Israel.

There are three reasons for the BJP's fascination with Israel and Zionism. First, a desire to toady up to the US through its most important strategic ally outside Europe, and thus isolate Pakistan, which cannot possibly ally with Israel as an "Islamic" state. Second, the BJP shares Likud's Islamophobia and anti-Arabism. The third reason is hyper-nationalism. The BJP is fascinated by the highly militarised, tough-as-nails nature of Israeli society and by its state's willingness to use massive force against the Palestinians whom it treats as terrorists and sub-human vermin, pure and simple. This closely parallels what some people in the Parivar would like to do to India's own religious minorities.

it is also an election season. i imagine the arrest of the hindu guys w/ties to the bjp was a lead weight around the party.

also, the timelines don't mention the top cop for anti terror getting wiped out at the beginning. i imagine they might have put a dent on the plan. and they alleged news the US told them about the threat

layla, re: hats off, you might say i am obsessed. there is a lot more where that comes from. note the source in the US sets stage for strikes if Pak does not act link, kagan. neocon top dogs. this vermin has been creating not only the MO but the lying narrative for the entire 'WOT'. bottom line? cheneyco has less than 2 months @ the pentagon to call the shots. they want to fast track the plan, shove it into highgear before mr 'negotiation' takes over.

from that link..(remember kagan's ilk are masterminds of double speak)

''Rather than simply begging the Indians to show restraint, a better option could be to internationalise the response. Have the international community declare that parts of Pakistan have become ungovernable and a menace to international security,'' Robert Kagan, an influential analyst with the Carnegie Endowment, said.

''Would such an action (strikes) violate Pakistan's sovereignty?'' Kagan asked in an op-ed, and answered, ''Yes, but nations should not be able to claim sovereign rights when they cannot control territory from which terrorist attacks are launched.''

IOW, neocons want to break up pakistan, they do NOT want india to be restrained..they want A COALITION beyond just IS/US/UK (meaning w/india who is already their ally in afghanistan)..they want a justification/reason. and this give it to them. we go from a few terrorists to a nation not having sovereign rights if they can't control terrorists in their midst.

this sets a whole new escalated precedence. the old one was 'we can attack terrorists operating in your country if we think they are a threat even tho it offends your sovereignty' vs the new 'you have no right to sovereignty anymore since you cannot control terrorists' morphing into the future MO of:

'as an international entity we are stripping you of your sovereignty and this is not to be confused w/war because we are simply the international governing representatives carrying out the international logic.'

prior to doing something the neocons always like to present the narrative, which of course is prepared prior to the 'event' for a fast roll out when people are 'in shock'. the narrative is accepted and all goes according to plan.

accept it may not. in the other timesofindia garbage, also written by the water carrier of the neocons (i presume) Chidanand Rajghatta inserts this morsel..The Bush administration is also keeping President-elect Barack Obama up-to-speed on the fast moving developments.

up to speed? let's hope the O team has some thoughts of it's own lest they get hooked into a track w/no backdoor other than fasttrack neocon all the way.

Anonymous said…
one more thing..the author Chidanand Rajghatta, her new article..Pak on track to being named terrorist state

read the whole thing..

it now appears that the ISI has cranked up its policy from mere infiltration and support to outright commando style attacks.

Despite a soft-line adopted by Bush administration in public to the benefit of doubt to Pakistan's civilian government and spur it into action, Washington has little doubt that the terrorist attack on Mumbai was sponsored and planned with state support, US officials are saying privately. One things is certain; this was not a run-of-the mill LeT operation.

"I think this event looks a lot more like a classical Special Forces or commando-style raid than it does like any terrorist attack we've seen before," David Kilcullen, a counter insurgency military analyst who served as an advisor to Gen. Davis Petraeus tells Fareed Zakaria in the upcoming edition of his program GPS, articulating what US officials are saying in private. "No al-Qaida-linked terrorist group and certainly never Lashkar-e-Taiba has mounted a maritime raid of this type or complexity."

now it is the ISI, which everyone is supposed to forget the cia invented.

plot thickens.

SRINAGAR, India – One of the two Indian men arrested for illegally buying mobile phone cards used by the gunmen in the Mumbai attacks was a counterinsurgency police officer who may have been on an undercover mission, security officials said Saturday, demanding his release.

The arrests, announced in the eastern city of Calcutta, were the first since the bloody siege ended. But what was touted as a rare success for India's beleaguered law enforcement agencies, quickly turned sour as police in two Indian regions squared off against one another.

Senior police officers in Indian Kashmir, which has been at the heart of tensions between India and Pakistan, demanded the release of the officer, Mukhtar Ahmed, saying he was one of their own and had been involved in infiltrating Kashmiri militant groups.


The implications of Ahmed's involvement — that Indian agents may have been in touch with the militants and perhaps supplied the SIM cards used in the attacks — added to the growing list of questions over India's ill-trained security forces, which are widely blamed for not thwarting the attacks.

might be a touch embarrassing if india discovered their agents were involved in supporting the operation.

As far as I am concerned, I will never forgive these
so called Islamic brothers in Wahhab Saudi dominated Sunni Islam and Iran dominated Shia Islam for murdering Saddam. Why? because he was a socialist to the bone and a true warrior for the Western dominated century.

When I see these jihadists and their pathetic excuse for resistance, I am reminded of the antics of children who haven't the ability to think outside the square.

Najubullah of Afghanistan and Saddam were true non-western warriors. We sold them to our tormentors for a few worthless coins.

Our children will live to curse us.
