Varsha vs Dilip (Round MCXIII). This time on the Ansal Plaza encounter.


... the American people not only endorsed President Bush's war on terrorism and his aggressive foreign policy, but also approved his methods of waging war. Meaning, the American *people* --- and I emphasise "people" to exclude Californians and the dense human rights-walas --- know the implication of the words "war" and "terrorism" ...


... in truth, it is not the murkiness surrounding the Ansal Plaza killing that makes questions inevitable. It is instead the record our "security agencies", and their political masters such as Jaitley, have built for themselves that begs questions; that heaps discredit on them.

I'll let Pastor Niemoller speak for me to Varsha about "dense human-rights walas":

"First They Came for the Jews"
By Pastor Niemoller

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
