Something I didn't know about Mumbai (Bombay).

Says Matt Savinar at LATOC Breaking News page today:

It's still Thanksgiving weekend and my guess is most folks - including the most dedicated and/or well-prepped doomers - would like to forget about these things for at least a few days. (This includes me) Unfortunately, global events have conspired to produce some very nasty and potentially catastrophic developments the last couple of days, the effects of which are not yet widely understood by the American mainstream media. In a post published at his blog late last night, Mike Ruppert dissects the implications of the attacks in Mumbai as follows:

I do not know how many other corporations are affected; but they will be many, if not most of the Dow 30 and the Fortune 500. And I can tell you that on Friday morning, any customer or client of Citigroup, Symantec or Hewlett-Packard will be unable to get customer assistance over the phone. Warranty service for these corporations will stop. I know that because I have been through that horrible grind with all of them in the last year or so. All of their calls are taken in Mumbai, by Indians. Nothing is working in Mumbai and there can be no certainty when anything will be working. Because the attacks included the premier hotels in the financial district, no multi-national will ever trust the city again. The risk is too great. I can almost bet that the multinationals are all well prepared for attacks on their own facilities, but were totally unprepared for an attack that pulled the city out from under them.

I think many corporations also have data processing and IT centers there are well.

The Achilles tendon of globalization has just been severed.

Ordinarily, I would go out and start researching to see how bad the exposure is but I already know that it is catastrophic. The markets will do all our research and reporting very quickly for us.

The UK Telegraph explains the financial ramifications of the attacks as follows:
Whoever designed the operations had another important Islamic tactic in mind: tabarra or exoneration.

This consists of separating the "outsider", in this case the British and American "infidel", from the community with the intent of blaming them for the ills of the world before sacrificing them. It was no accident that one of the places attacked was a Jewish centre, where gunmen seized a rabbi and several members of the congregation as hostages.

The loud message was that a small group of individuals could turn a megalopolis of almost 15 million inhabitants into a battlefield for at least a day. Source

In a separate article, the UK Telegraph explains why the Taj Hotel was targeted:
To have pictures of burning Taj Hotel broadcast around the world will have a deeper impact than even perhaps the terrorists intended, striking a blow against a symbol of Indian wealth and progress and sending shivers down the spine of some of the richest and most powerful people on the planet. Source

Well, that explains a few things, although I think we all knew this was Islamic terrorism, the target did seem strange - because most of us ordinary Americans simply aren't aware of or don't know the extent of the importance of various international cities in the globalization scam. Terrorists don't have to hit anyplace in America to destroy American interests, in other words. They can do it right there in their own third world homelands, because that's where the Robber Barons have moved their operations.

If it weren't for the hostages and massacre at the Chabad House, most of us would not have given a second glance to the news of the terrorist attack in Mumbai. We think things that happen in those far away places have nothing to do with us, but that is a serious mistake we cannot continue to make.

In the meantime, little Moshe and his family are in our prayers, both his parents who died simply because they were Jewish and his living grandparents who will have to pick up the pieces of this tragedy.

Blessed are you, Adonai, the true judge.
