Life is cheap in the Orient

[This is the nth time I am trying to put this into the post; maybe something is wrong with blogger? After failing (n-1) times with internet explorer, I am now trying with safari]

There is an old quote due to General Westmoreland trying to justify the indiscriminate bombing in Vietnam, where he says that life in the Orient is cheap. I want to use it to `understand' what happened yesterday in Madurai: how else can one understand why someone would throw a petrol bomb into a newspaper office with lots of inflammable material and knowing that there would be many persons inside? How else can one understand setting a bus on fire, knowing that there are some college girls insideas was done in Dharmapuri some years ago? No words can describe such atrocities...
