Afghan Terror bombing at Indian Embassy [krakatoa]

Tragic news, it goes without saying, every time these sub-human dead-enders carry off another of their barbaric acts. Even more so when innocent civilians are targetted.

A suicide car bomb exploded outside the Indian Embassy in central Kabul on Monday, killing 40 people in the deadliest attack this year in Afghanistan's capital, officials said...

Shortly after the attack, a woman ran out of a Kabul hospital screaming, crying and hitting her face with both of her hands. Her two children, a girl named Lima and a boy named Mirwais, had been killed.

"Oh my God!" the woman screamed. "They are both dead."

If anything positive can come from this sort of thing, it is that the terrorists in Afghanistan are making the same mistakes that doomed their ideological brethren in Iraq: Indiscriminately killing those they ultimately need the tacit or open support of.

The point that the MSM always misses in their relativistic moral certitude is that "winning the hearts & minds" of a populace is hard to do when "winning" involves blowing the hearts & minds of one's countrymen all over a public square with a ton of explosives.

Indeed, the depth of the MSM's moral certitude is mirrored in that which is found in the soul of the Terrorists.

Facts on the ground have little sway with the true believer. The MSM will spin every U.S. setback as a major loss, every minor victory as pyrhhic, and ignore every major victory until it is no longer politically relevant, or can at least be spun as such.

As is the case with the Terrorists, the MSM's tunnel-vision is self-defeating. Ace reported the great flushing noise from Newspapers just last week, a story that is almost as satisfying a spectacle as watching 7th century thugs meeting 21st century martial reality.

Buried in today's article is a factoid that cloaks a very large and relevant truth in a throwaway statistic (emphasis mine):

The embassy attack was the sixth suicide bombing in Kabul this year. Insurgent violence has killed more than 2,200 people — mostly militants — in Afghanistan this year, according to an Associated Press count of official figures.
