    Blasts at Jakarta Ritz, Marriott kill 9, wound 50

    News From The Associated Press

    Jul 17, 1:27 AM EDT
    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Bombs minutes apart ripped through two luxury hotels in Jakarta Friday, killing nine and wounding at least 50 more, ending a four-year lull in terror attacks in the world's most populous Muslim nation. At least 14 foreigners were among the dead and wounded.

    The blasts at the J.W. Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels, located side-by-side in an upscale business district in the capital, blew out windows and scattered debris and glass across the street, kicking up a thick plume of smoke. Facades of both hotels were reduced to twisted metal.

    Alex Asmasubrata, who was jogging nearby, said he walked into the Marriott before emergency services arrived and "there were bodies on the ground, one of them had no stomach," he said. "It was terrible."

    Why bomb your own nations?

    With local TV reporting that investigators suspect the attackers may have been hotel guests, who smuggled in high explosives it makes me wonder seriously why we haven't been hit here at home. Given the latest explosive technology and the thousands of soft targets available it's almost a miracle their haven't been several, really when you take into consideration the ease at which illegals and smugglers cross over the borders north and south. Although the Canadian Border does not get a lot of coverage and from interviewing a few Canadians the smuggling on that Border if from this side to that. Items like cigarettes and booze are almost free here compared to the extremely high prices there do to taxes.
    The fact that we have been bomb free for so long means someone has been doing their job right contrary to what we hear from so many who are more anti Bush than pro American.
