The question of how such a small number of militants battled India’s finest commandos for such a long time was answered recently by the Daily Mail.

That’s right, apparently the terrorists were spurred on by narcotics, namely cocaine, mildly believable although probably not recommended or efficient for the task of over fifty hours continual fighting and the real icing on the journalistic cake LSD.

Yes the perpetrators of one of India’s most audacious terrorist attacks were injecting themselves with one of the most potent hallucinogens known to humankind.

This begs a number of questions. Firstly why anybody would think it was a good idea, given the obvious aim of ruthless killing to inject themselves with a mind altering substance. Secondly, if they were tripping how the hell did they manage to reap so much havoc?

Now please take the time to examine this evidence testing precisey the effect of TRYING to fight on the narcotic, especially if one is tempted to trust the Daily Mail:

It does not take a brain surgeon to work out that LSD is illegal, not because of the ruthless, aggressive efficiency it bestowes upon the user but because of the debilitating intoxication it results in.

The Daily Mail quotes an unnamed ‘official’, presumably unnamed because he is an official of nothing more than spouting crap. The article carries on with the ‘official’ explaining that they had ‘dietary training’. How this was gleaned from the wreckage is not stated but shows a fondness of fiction.

If ever there was a need for accurate well researched journalism it is in a time of crisis, a time when tensions soar and fears are heightened. Sadly at this time of grief and shock the rags of a perishing industry serve to humiliate and ridicule the intelligence of the public.
