Pakistan has no positive reasons for grabbing world attention - terrorism is their only offering to the world. 

They attack not just India but a fellow-Muslim Afghanistan and kill US troops there as well.

Glad to see the American ambassador’s statement of solidarity. 

Thoughts and prayers for the deceased personnel and their families.

More Muslims have died because of terrorism than any other demographic. This is the hateful nature of terrorism.

It's not as simplistic as some people like to make out.

Not sure what Afghanistan and US troops have to do with this particular incident, though.

Of course the differences in beliefs are a fundamental part of the dispute, but perhaps more importantly is greater rights to the Indus River.

Typical of conflicts time immemorial, it's a battle of conflicting beliefs and control of resources.

They do this at each other in the past 70 years and they were carry on ! Britian's tactic of divide and let them kill each other is still working!

The U.S. ambassador to India, Ken Juster, condemned the attack, saying in a tweet that Washington stands alongside India in confronting terror and defeating it

What kind of moral standard is like this? Iran has an explosion occurred earlier!

As elephant200 points out, strikingly similar to the latest Iran attack in several ways. Rival groups operating out of Pakistan...

RIP the poor guys who lost their lives for fighting a war of politics for dirty politicians on both side of the border.

As usual, right away blame any country that ends with "tan" even before the investigator can reach the area. I don't understand how a cash deprived small country can create problems for much rich and large countries across the globe.

Maybe India, the world and most of the arm chair warriors should also look into atrocities committed by Indian military in Kashmir before commenting and blaming another country. For a total population of 14.5 Million, India has 750,000 troops in Kashmir infamous for their brutal use of pallet guns, rapes and mass murders and this brutality is ongoing for over 70 years now, so instead of blaming it on Pakistan to get some anti Pakistan sentiment before the elections, the Indian government should start giving basic human rights to people of Kashmir to avoid deaths of people from both side.

in mountainous Kashmir since an armed revolt in 1989 in which tens of thousands were killed..

The usual narrative based disinformation, Kashmir is a mostly a valley and not mountainous, that Pakistani armed revolt was to kill and expel the Hindus out of Kashmir Valley, no wonder this jihadi aligned Fayaz Bukhari omitted this bit of fact.

He's a journalist. Just because his reporting doesn't match up to your own views doesn't make him a jihadist sympathiser.

The military in that country is very well financed when it comes to creating and managing the terrorism industry across the planet, India only gets a small subset of those terrorist.

The usual paid troll comment, right along the lines of deceit and subterfuge. The military in that country is very well financed when it comes to creating and managing the terrorism industry across the planet, India only gets a small subset of those terrorist.

Well, I have right to my opinion the way you have to yours, anything that doesn't align with your version of truth isn't a paid troll comment.

It was a genuine question and I will change my position if I can see some factual proof that links all this back to the guy somewhere sitting in some cave in Pakistan and then the links between the all mighty military you mentioned and the guy sitting in cave before pointing fingers.

However a quick google search did helped me with information about the death sentence of an Indian terrorist (a naval officer) who actually admitted of being involved in espionage activities in Pakistan including bombings and killings of innocent civilians. This means India on state level support terrorism across its borders as well.

no wonder this jihadi aligned Fayaz Bukhari omitted this bit of fact.

You also missed that fact, the armed revolt which was a result of continuous oppression of people of Kashmir by Indian forces against their will and against the UN resolutions.

Why can't both India and Pakistan let people of Kashmir decide what they want for themselves?

Sorry, but he is bit more than just a jihadist sympathizer, do your homework, you have no idea what kind journalism you are dealing with here,

Definitely a troll styled comment.. that armed revolt was to kill and drive out the Hindus and nothing else.
