    First of all, here's how this is going to play out:

    The attack was carried out by 10 terrorists.
    The death toll could exceed 300, making this one of the worst, if not THE worst terrorist attack on Indian soil.
    They received their training in a training camp in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
    India has demanded Pakistan send the head of their intelligence service to New Dehli. Pakistan has decided NOT to do that.
    India is going to want to go into Kashmir and wipe out all of the training camps.

    Why assume 10 terrorists, when it's known there were at least 20? Your point for halving?

    I'm just reporting what these two links are saying. If there were 20, neither of these sources say so.

    Ok, perhaps I'm being nitpicking, but I'm going with CNN and FOX, coins of the same.

    Less people to burn fossil fuel. I think that's a plus these days.

    Maybe this will motivate Pakistan to get more proactive in cleaning up it's own backyard. Or maybe it will inspire a combined effort of different nations to motivate them to do so.
