U.S. warns of terror attacks in India

The U.S. Embassy warned Americans on Saturday about the possibility of terror attacks in India.

"There are increased indications that terrorists are planning imminent attacks in New Delhi," the alert said. "Terrorists have targeted places in the past where U.S. citizens or Westerners are known to congregate or visit."

The alert said markets in India's capital could be a target.

"Markets, such as those located in Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Greater Kailash, Karol Bagh, Mehrauli and Sarojini Nagar, can be especially attractive targets for terrorist groups," the alert said.

Two weeks ago, the embassy issued another alert on the same subject.

    I can't wait to buy an all electric vehicle. I'd much rather fuel my transportation with domestically produced electricity from wind, solar, hydro, coal, natural gas, nuclear, or geothermal than buying oil from people whose deepest held religious beliefs make them hate us and want to destroy us.

    Reply: sorry to burst your bubble, All wind you speak of enters the USA from the east.
    The Arabs will tax the wind my friend. You still need lubricants to run the eltrical car my friend– this will be taxed also. Coal is to dirty and will pollute the USA into something terrible. Hydro- States like Nevada, California is already running out of water.
    Natural gas will be sucked up in 40 years. You need to bow to Arabs (hold hands with them like Bush) for they have 400 years worth oil my friend.

    to jeff that posted"To American Indian:" sorry jeff but you must not have a clue as to the history of christianity and the horrible things they have done in the past. Ever hear of the crusades? Do you know how the christian spaniards enslaved the peoples of southwest america, branded their faces with "owners" name? The list goes on and on how these so called christians went to different countries, killed and enslaved the people there and all in the name of jesus. Those that point finger have not turned hand over to see the 3 pointing back

    Most of you who insult muslims and islam are just simple idiots, one day you people would just regret every word you guys are saying, and i wonder how your comments are being published, this is so disrespectfull to all of us.
    Another thing, whenever i see a bad word about my religion which Islam, it tells me more about how strong we are, and how great is our religion, it makes it more great and powefull into my eyes;
    Even though you keep trying hard to disgrace us, but it just makes us much more powerfull, then strong, and gets some other people damn angry, which isn't so nice.
    Islam will never die nomatter what you try, so either you accept it and live with it or just go and commit suicide, if you're not happy with it. We're too many around the world, too many jealous for our religion, too many in love with God and our religion, so whatever you do, we'll always be there. Always will be there, nomatter what you try, we're so determined.
    And enough is enough, everyone got to stop talking bad about muslims and Islam, we're so quiet now, but this is so dangerous, and any time, this hate towards us would create a real war, today what's happening is more of politics than religion, but these insults towards us are not acceptable to a normal sensative human being.
    This is so disgusting, and i'm saying to the sponsor of this website, please you don't get such stupid comments published, this is unfair towards all muslim nation, this is so disrespectfull, there should be a legal law that'll punish each person that would disgrace, disrespect, or insult any muslim or Islam or any other religion, this way, i think there gonna be less suicide bombers, and less problems in the world....

    Plus filthy dirty people that eats with rats and those who drink all kind of dirt,urine and other staff, and those who pray to donkeys, and other animals, they shouldn't dare to speak the word religion, cause they don't know it at all, they got nothing to do with it, only religious people could discuss religion, what's religion, why and how?
    Why some cheap low class dirt would get to the level of a whole clean and holly religion, it is not normal, everyone got to know his own level, and the religions i know are only three, islam, christianity, judaism, that's it, don't come and tell me abt some religion called gays or some animal religion or whatever, just guess a name, then call it a religion, philosophie is far away from religion, so let's get real and keep it down, let's not forget our origins please.This is so cheap when all of you talk and insult a whole religion, so so so so cheap.
    Most of you are racisists, most of you are full of trouble, most of you are confused, most of got issues in life, most of you are sick, most of you do all dirt, most of you aren't angels, most of you are a bad thing, asking about freedom of speech, freedom in life in street, well freedom got a limitation, freedom needs a guidance, when you cross the limit then you disrespect the other, and it is a scandal, it is non sense, it is not human when you cross the limit.
    We people need a limit to our freedom, all problems we got into today is because the much freedom we got, so all humans are going just mad, they forgot manners, respect the other, they forgot their pain, they forgot their filth, they forgot what they suffered, here comes the problem, and there we need to go. Let's not talk about anything Holy please unless we're sure we know something about it.

    The bloody pakistanis like Hafiz Saeed who has been recommended by the ISI as the legal weapon against India. the main culprit in the Mumbai blasts. the ISI should be damaged by drone attacks by U.S. and India and all the countries of the world. The people of the world should understand and recognize that ISI is the creator of terrorists organizations to sabotage the progress of the world. the ISI is using this weapon to rule the world led by muslims. The bloody muslims should be curbed forever

    With every jihadist getting 72 virgins, by now the Jihadist heaven must be running out of the virgins... May be the Madras's should have more realistic preaching that now a days they may be getting only 58 virgins when they blow themselves up to their heaven......

    Jokes aside, obviously the frustration and charged feelings equally exist on both sides causing all kinds of accusations. But let us focus on the article, its about imminent terror attack on Indian soil .... and nobody can argue that ISI or some version of it, is not going to be the one behind it. So if all good Muslims agree ISI is bad, can we just get them all to join others to wipe out ISI? Can we not get rid of terrorism by cleaning up the terror preaching and terror sponsoring BAD guys? So, any good Muslim willing to stand up and denounce ISI publicly and be vocal in their support of India, US and Pakistan Govt in their attempt to wipe out ISI? I am sure if ISI is made an example, others like Al Queda and all its brother organizations are going to get a message.

    So any good muslim there ready to do it or are we all just going to stick our heads in sand and keep debating about how not all muslims are bad and how everybody else is equally bad as well .........................
