Mumbai Terrorists Used Drugs

None of this surprises me. Neither do the asinine remarks that people have made that there has to be a reason that people would be so angry. I have a simple message to those who try and excuse this sort of behavior.

If you think that murder and wanton destruction is justified than you are a jackass. You deserve my size 12 boot in your ass. How can you begin to try and justify this behavior. Life may not always be black and white, but some things are. Simple concept, murder is wrong.
The captured terrorist in the Mumbai (formerly Bombay) attacks, Azam Amir Qasab, has told interrogators that his father forced him to join Lashkar-e-Taibat (LeT) so that the family could earn more money.

Qusab's father Amir, a carpenter in the Pakistani town of Faridkot, made initial contact with the leading LeT commander Zakiur Rehman who promised the family a £2,000 payment, according to the Daily News and Analysis newspaper.

Rehman was known to Qusab as Chacha, or uncle.

The 21 year old who was captured after a mob set on him after he took part in a killing spree at Mumbai's main train station on Wednesday had been involved in minor crimes before his recruitment.

After teaming up with Rehman, he was recruited for the Mumbai mission. Rehman was reported to have personally delivered the main orders for the 10-man group.

"Around 45 days before the terror strike Chacha called the ten and briefed them about the mission," an official told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the Mumbai terrorists who battled Indian commandos for 60-hours last week relied on cocaine and other stimulants to stay awake for the duration of the fight.

Officials said drug paraphernalia, including syringes, was recovered from the scene of the attacks, which killed almost 200 people.

The heavily built men, who had undergone training at a special marine camp established by the Lashkar-e-Taibat (LeT) terrorist group in Pakistan, had also used steroids to build a tougher physique."
