    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- A car bomb detonated Saturday night in the heart of Islamabad, killing at least 34 people, police said, and shattering windows more than two miles away.

    At least 200 people were injured in the attack in Pakistan's capital, policed said.

    Rescuers pulled bloodied victims from vehicles, and other casualties could be seen in the street. Officials predicted the casualty tolls would rise.

    GEO TV's Hamid Mir, who was at the explosion site, said he saw at least 52 bodies. Most of the dead appeared to be drivers who were waiting with their cars outside the hotel, and hotel staff -- most of them security guards.

    Mir said a witness saw the gates of the hotel rammed open by a small car, followed by an explosive-laden truck that detonated.

    Yikes!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    When are Muslims going to get tired of being blown up by their co-religionists? :mad:

    Not anytime soon.

    Now, here's a question for the isolationists among us. This wasn't a military target or an embassy, it was a privately held US corporation. What happens to all of the property held by US businesses and individuals if we pull out all of our troops, close down our embassies and spend the next few years singing Kumbaya from within our own borders?

    We can well afford to be murders around the world - outside international law, just like the fellows that perpetrated this abomination. We cannot however afford to be the world's policeman, any longer.

    They don't. They believe they're Mohammad's hand, correcting ones that have strayed from the true faith. Reference Salem, Massachusetts and their "witches" to see how far out of hand that can get, then go back 7 centuries to see where these fine examples of the human race preside.

    Great! All this will do is get their own countrymen to turn against them - and that is what we need.

    If you can't see the difference between us and them, then you really have no concept of what goes on in the world.

    It's hard to figure exactly what the results of this will be. 9/11 galvanized us (briefly), but the Madrid bombings cowed the Spanish into running from Iraq. Pakistan has as many factions as there are clans and tribes, and each one has its own agenda. Some will be apalled by this, and some will be thrilled. There's no way of knowing how this will play out.
