Jihad mass murder in Mumbai redux

This week has seen another murderous attack in Mumbai, by Muslims, against non Muslims. The result is yet another pile of dead bodies.

Coordinated bombings in Mumbai, India murdered twenty-one people and wounded well over 100 Wednesday; Indian authorities suspect that Islamic jihadists have struck Mumbai once again. "We infer that this was a coordinated attack by terrorists," said Indian home minister Palaniappan Chidambaram, and other Indian officials reportedly believe that the Indian Mujahideen, which has close ties to the Pakistani jihadist group Lashkar-e-Taiba, was responsible.

So it appears that a terrorist organization, based in (where else) Pakistan, is responsible, again. Is it al Qaeda, or is it Pakistan's intelligence directorate ISI?  Is there a difference?

I wonder what India is prepared to do about yet another outrage springing from their western neighbor. My guess is "not much".
