There are even contradictory statements regarding the actual numbers of attackers and numbers of dead.

Yep , by 'Moderate' and 'Ultra', especially when , a child can understand that there is no 'Ultra' and 'Moderate' Taliban, A Taliban is a Taliban.

but they will be real, Taliban are so stupid to attack a police training center where they gain nothing? a very low level insignificant target.

*At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist.

This attack could have been planned by their ISI also. Makes it look to the world (US and EU) that Pakistan is also a victim of terror, and is losing control. This way the aid to "fight terror" keeps flowing in, and they can buy more HDW Type 209 subs and JF-17s to fight "the Taliban".

I think it was more to show, they can de stable Paksitan and the real intention is to some how take control of Pakistani nukes, what else they are doing this ISI and Paksitani army are providing then safe heavens for them to operate.

that is why it took place around G20 meeting so the world leaders can discuss how much to drop in the begging bowl.

they have succeeded they kept their Taliban and extracted aid from stupid Americans, USA will lose in Afghanistan and leave good taliban behind and Pakistan will have extracted billions in aid and weapons, there is no loss in this equation at all for them thanks to the stupidity of the Americans who they played like a fiddle:Laie_39:

In all it was quite strange that they were able to caputure many of the terrorist alive without much of fight at the roof of building.

If you can see the firing celebration video, one can see few commandos and 7-10 hands up just above the wall of terrace.

It is quite strange that people come prepaired for such a attack surender and allowe to be arrested.

what is puzzling is what is the motive for terrorists to attack a police station?

may be to send message: "dont join police force"!


but, I have serious reservations about the authenticity of the attack, just like the SL team attack. the speed with which the whole episode ended even though about 500-600 cops were under hostage is not quite convincing.

btw, such commando style attacks never took place in pak untill 'mumbai'. that also raises some questions.

exactly!

also, seeing the picture of the captured terrorist, makes one wonder about the authenticity of the whole incident or atleast those supposed captured ones.

Initially attackers were claimed to be 20-25 in numbers, but when the encounter ended, the no. were down to 5, with 3 blew them up, 1 escaped and 1 nabbed.
