    Yes this could happen here, think of any resort area here or in Mexico, think of any big holiday like Christmas or any large unsuspecting gathering like Spring Break or Sundance Film Festival even the world surfing championships in Hawiee. IMHO the terrorists in the west have been given a blueprint for the next attack against the US and it's allies, terrorists work best when faced with defenseless civalians.

    Mexico has always concerned me. Most Americans are woefully uninformed on the dangerous situation down there. All they see are the cutsie resort towns. I suggest anyone who thinks Mexico is quaint little adobe huts with peaceful shopkeepers hocking their wares, needs to spend 2 days in Nuevo Laredo. Just remember, the US no longer has a consulate there, since it was mortar attacked a couple of years ago.

    They are on the brink of all out revolt down there. And I live pretty close to the border.

    Here is a pretty good article from the Brit point of view. ***WARNING****
    There are a couple of graphic photos. Probably not for kiddos.

    In my experience, and wisdom, this was directed at the US. There was a promise of a huge event prior to US transition of power. I do not think this would rank as "huge". I think this was a trial operation. Anyone who has been to India knows that it is an easy society to infiltrate. Masses of poor, a huge country with hundreds of languages and religions, and a rail system that has done away with India's xenophobia. A lot of folks there are just worried about surviving day to day. Now, their "message" was that they attacked Bombay on a US holiday. Bombay is the economic center of India with a thriving middle and affluent class. With all the bedwetting socialists in America, scared of BB guns, and "work their feelings out" with shrinks, something like this would be a serious wakeup call should it happen in a place like San Fran, Boston, or Chicago. Probably would not happen in a place like Dallas or Phoenix. Too many people toting firearms, both legally and illegally, and they are not afraid to return fire.

    I think this is just the beginning for our Indian Bretheren.

    Jesse Jackson now owns the copyright on the rainbow so these guys are in trouble!
    I have been seeing more HKs a PSG-1 and MP-5s. I also saw troops moving into the Taj Hotel lobby packing 50 cal size ammo cans and cases of drinking water. Apparently it has been quite a battle.

    Just a note. Why the heck are thse guys wearing rainbow stickers on their steel pots. Have they not heard of the American "Don't ask, don't tell" policy?

    Very Cool. I see a couple of FAL's, an AK variant of some sort, and I believe in the upper right of the first photo I see either an SVT-40, A Dragunov or possibly an Hakim. I cannot tell. Thanks for the photo!!

    Being a former Brit colony, they use a lot of Brit designed rifles. The FN was the mainstay of the Brit military for a long time. I would suspect that it is an FN variant. In the 70's and 80's the Indians cozied up to the Soviets, so you do see some of the AK's and Dragunov's, but not many.

The upper and lower receivers were quite flat with no detail like a foward assist or AK lever to it. It looked like a Lahti M-26 up dated to the sniper role.
    The Indians have been known to make their own weapons based on others designs. It may be a homegrown variant of the Lahti of some sorts. They even make their own Enfield called the Ishapor. Quality is mediocre at best.

Those PPl need a complete re-equip with new weapons concieved to pack optics from the get-go, several million dollars worth nation wide, as a starter.
    Agreed. From what I am watching, firearms hygene is not a priority amongst our Indian bretheren.

    Again I would say they could do a lot worse then the FAL's, but you are correct. Many of them look like Brit rejects. The Galils I saw looked to be better maintained, and are very decent rifles. I think the fellows with the Enfields are some sort of home guard militia folks.

    If optics were properly installed on the Enfields, they would have an above average long range rifle. They way some of these knuckleheads were holding the FAL's I would also suggest training is in order.
