Kaboom, again

We Australians seem to feel quite possessive about our little holiday island, Bali. Perhaps we should stake a claim to it and make it a bit of Australia. Get ASIO in there and they will sort those terrorists out. I have not been there, but R has twenty five years ago. He did not like it, but it was quite different then.

I feel sad for those killed, sad for those injured, sad for the natives of Bali, and sad that their livelihoods are probably gone for a long time. It was a bit of a downer to wake up at seven on a Sunday morning after a party and listen to the radio news.

There are many to blame, too many to name, although those f***** ******* (insert religion here) comes to mind.

If only it was so simple that we could just blame a religion and not look at the bigger picture. That it incites such horrible and terrible hatred, the 'west' is going seriously wrong somewhere.

Some serious lateral thinking is needed by western country leaders. Policing type methods is quite obviously not working. Those who died in Bali over the weekend would probably agree with me.

  1. hmmm, but you can't police fanatics that are willing to kill themselves...

    Maybe we could wage war on them all? That sounds like a good idea! ;-)
