Does President Obama care more for Indian victims of terrorist attacks than he does Pakistanis? According to this editorial from Pakistan's The Nation, President Obama's quick offer of investigative help after the latest terrorist bombing of Mumbai on Wednesday shows that he seeks to 'curry favor' with India and he is 'indifferent' toward Pakistanis.
The Nation editorial says in part:
"President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani condemned the attacks, which should make clear to Indians that we are a peace loving nation that doesn't believe in using terrorism as a tool of state policy - something in fact that their own country is doing with impunity in occupied Kashmir.
"At the same time, President Obama, dreadfully indifferent to the more numerous and even more ghastly bombing attacks in Pakistan, didn't fail to take the opportunity to curry favor with India, promising them assistance in investigating the attack.
"While there's no harm in expressing grief over the loss of innocent lives, President Obama’s double-standards with respect to ignoring Pakistan's victims of terror are shameful to say the least."
