  •  I don't want to denigrate this awful act. (6+ / 0-)

    But Mumbai in Boston would be more like blowing up Copley Plaza, wouldn't it?

    •  Actually, more like blowing it up 12 times. (9+ / 0-)
      The 2008 Mumbai attacks were twelve coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai, India's largest city [6][7] by members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based militant organisation.[8]
      Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident,[12] the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower,[12] Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital (a women and children's hospital),[12] the Nariman House Jewish community centre,[13] the Metro Cinema,[14] and a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College.[12] There was also an explosion at Mazagaon, in Mumbai's port area, and in a taxi at Vile Parle.[15]

    •  Much worse than that (6+ / 0-)

      there was a significant concern of nuclear war between India and Pakistan as a result of Mumbai.
