The same old face of terrorism

From CNN:

Now imagine if India took an approach to terrorism similar to that of the U.S.: i.e. "making Kashmir safe for democracy." I wonder what the results of that would be. Of course, the situation isn't exactly analogous because Kashmir actually is a security threat to India, unlike the previous relationship between Iraq and the United States.

So make of it what you will. The basic point is that when you see incidents like this and the continuation of problems in Israel and Palestine over four years after the event that "changed everything," it makes you wonder why we're not actually doing what we can to solve problems rather than create more of them.
