can't make sense of this madness...

each day as i talk to people as young (or old) as me or younger or older than me...

the country they hail is israel "we really need to go the israel way..no one cares for their citizens the way they do..you bomb one school of theirs...they will bomb ten schools of yours"
the leader they seek is a dictator.even a fascist. "we don't like modi..but we think we need someone like him right now"
the government they seek is one that will equal in terror. "We are too soft"
all this even as the media dedicates paeans to the mumbai spirit..well.. there is this other side too...

``they'' don't realise that a `strong'' state only provides the basis for a more violent reaction. ``they'' must realise that such violence can be rooted out only when the idea of violence is illegitimised in the mindset of a people and this can be achieved by turning sensitive to the aspirations of the people. do they ``wonder'' about the non-violent protests that are not even taken note of by the articulate, the media and those who matter!!!

well, even while saying all this, i am clear that violence is not the answer.

I think that if people were kept busier..i.e.they had more to do, they wouldn't come up with wierd ideas like bombing trains or praising dictators.We all know who's workshop an idle mind is..

I wonder if the boy/man who became a terrorist would have in fact not become one had he a secure and reasonably well-paying job. If more well-paying and secure jobs were created in say J&K, would that prevent at least some of the youth from taking up a jehadi vow?

in the fields lay bodies burning
As the war machine keeps burning

politicians hide away
they are the ones who started the war
why should they enroll
when they can leave this role to the poor

The War of the Middle East has begun

The Israeli way is SO not right. Whether you go by the principle of "the greatest good for the greatest number" or upholding rights, their actions cannot by justified. There is one incident where the Israeli army kidnapped one of the Hezbollah terrorists to get back one of their own soldiers and since there was no killing involved, it was fair. This time however, with the war against Lebanon, they just went overboard.
