Terrorists have struck the commuter trains in Mumbai, a city in which Iive at least 200 people that I am related to. The attacks are very similar to the Madrid and London attacks.
This is also the third attack by terrorists in India, after the Dec. 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament and the attack on a Delhi market on October 29, 2005.
It is vital for America to act quickly and re-affirm our support for India as an ally in the War on Terror. Of all the world's countries, this is the most valuable alliance for the US to cultivate in the 21st century. India is already the most pro-US country in the world, and is the only country where George W. Bush is more highly regarded than in the US.
The fifth-column in the US will try everything to undermine the War on Terror and help the terrorists. This includes trying to prevent a tighter Indo-US alliance. If this event helps draw America and India closer, we will have scored a victory against the enemies of freedom and democracy, both in terrorist organizations and in the US itself.
