Terrorists specialize in those things not "Muslims." And when you get some evidence, let us know. Random speculation doesn't help a situation like this.

Maybe some sympathy for the victims, instead of just exploiting their suffering?

For all we know the controls were tampered with. What engineer in his right mind would travel that fast "knowing" the curve was coming-up, and "why" didn't "central control" contact the engineer prior to the crash?

Goes to show Obama's high-speed rail project [via tornado and hurricane alley] might not be a really good idea.

Hardly terrorism. Spain updated its old tracks and then added new tracks for high speed trains. Those high speed trains are typically controled by computers so they know when to slow down.

To save $$, spain decided to merge the slow old tracks with the high speed new tracks. Meaning that you now have a person rather than computer whom is responsible for slowing the train down when merging onto older tracks.

Where the crash happened, the train was going 190 KM/H when the speed on those old tracks was around90 KM/H.

Here is a vid from the crash:

For all you know, they WEREN'T. And Spain has high speed trains which work very well, but this wasn't one.

Leave it to certan posters to drag Obama into every single thread, though..

Obama has his nose into everything. Look at everything...threads leading to Obama are there.

Still and all I did not see in your comical comment any reference "you" support Obama's high-speed rail system.

Yes, we feel sorry for the victims and their families, without a doubt. It was a great tragedy.

But ......
.... Muslims/Islam have become synonymous with worldwide terrorism !!!
When people (except for liberals) think of one, they automatically think of the other.
It's a fact of life since 9/11.
