Terror , Government & Media

"If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience."   - George Bernard Shaw

So, again it happened.. One more round of blasts in Mumbai..  As I'm abroad now, I'm somewhat away from the 24 hour sensational / breaking news culture of Indian news channels.

Yes, the Government should put in better counter terror mechanisms in place, better intelligence or whatsoever.. But I don't think they can eliminate this scourge altogether.. If some stupid wants to blast some area, there is very little that a Government can do about it..  even a well funded & efficient organization like Mossad has not been able to eliminate terror completely..   Eliminating these, if at all possible, is a political & societal solution rather than a military or intelligence one.

And I think I buy some of the comments made by police officers quoted in media.. You may prevent a lot of these ..But one fault , entire world blames you.
