Deadly India Attacks Showcase Lack of Security

It's finally over after 60 hours.

Just 10 young Muslim men armed with rifles and grenades killed at least 195 people and wounded 295 in one of the deadliest attacks in India's history early Saturday. Among the dead were 18 foreigners, including six Americans.

Early reports are that multiple, well-coordinated attacks were carried out by well-trained terrorists.

As to how they could massacre so many innocent people so quickly -- about the only answer at this point is because they could. There apparently was little or no coordinated security at the tourism sites which bore the brunt of the attacks.

Angelina Jolie's Guns

"Brad [Pitt] and I are not against having a gun in the house and we do have one.  And yes, I'd be able to use it if I had to.  If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them."
