See I dunno what I think will happen there, you could be right (although
I hope not). Patently you can't 'crush' terrorism, I hope that those
(including me) seeking some sort of justice here will grudgingly come to
realise that, and be a little more realistic about possible responses
(such as NATO 'going in' and probably starting something much bigger
than is currently the case).
I'm waiting to see if the story is still going in two weeks, or two
months. I'm very interested to see what staying power a tragedy of these
proportions has. I think we'll know things have changed gear when CNN
finally has an ad break...
