Sri Lankan cricketers attacked in Pakistan

Digraceful. Obviously Islamists the chief suspects, but remember Madrid/Aznar. And there's already this:

But a Pakistani minister, Sardar Nabil Ahmed Gabol, reportedly told private Geo TV that evidence suggested the attackers came across the border from India. He said the assault came in reaction to the Mumbai attacks, and was a "declaration of open war on Pakistan by India".


The guys affected. I hope they're all ok. Mendis is a phenomenon. Nobody seems to care about the Pakistani policemen killed though.

What could anyone, Islamists included, have against Sri Lankan cricketers?
  • Could it be their govt's foreign policy? (No, but that's what they'd be saying if England had been attacked)
  • Could it be that Islamists hate sport, along with other forms of entertainment like music and cinema? Yes. (Pakistan having scored 600 we can discount irate fans)
  • Could it be that Islamists are nihilist shitheads who hate everyone and want to send them to hell asap? Yes
