I just watched my daily CNN News headlines and was hoping to catch an update on the blasts in Bangladesh. The strange thing is – it wasn’t even mentioned in the headlines! I thought I had perhaps read the earlier piece wrongly and checked the BBC News site. And its not even in the main news – the breaking news is about the football friendlies (The Brits disastrously lost to the Danes BTW, so I don’t know why BBC is excited about it). I had to search for “Bangladesh” before I found it in the South Asia section.
393 bombs exploded in 63 districts out of 64 districts of Bangladesh.
Is it just me or doesn’t this sound like important news to anyone else?
The Acorn writes on the Bangladesh bombings and their possible motives.
The terrorists who set off explosions all over Bangladesh warned the American president and the British prime minister to get out of Muslim countries, asserting that â€˜their days of ruling over Muslim countries are overâ€™. The terrorists think that setting of explosions in an already impoverished Muslim country, terrorising innocent people, a majority of who are Muslims anyway, will strike fear in the hearts of the United States and Britain.
Given the news interest that it generated, I would say, ‘What were they thinking!?!”
