From today's paper...

Tegucigalpa, Honduras (AP) - Unknown assailants opened fire this week on a public bus in northern Honduras, killing at least 23 passengers and wounding 16 others ... The assailants left a note that said they represented a revolutionary group that opposes the death penalty...

Beijing (AFP) - The Chinese authorities have sentenced two Hong Kong men to death for smuggling digital player components into the southeastern city of Xiamen...

I don't want to be judgmental or anything, but killing 23 people to protest the death penalty and sentencing to death people for smuggling digital player components both seem a bit extreme to me...


the killing in Honduras does have a strange sort of consistent logic to it..

And if you're interested in compliance, nothing works like the death penalty. Kinda hard to amortize /that/ as a cost of doing business, as long as you get the decision makers and not the foot soldiers.

Maybe you're expecting too much from a band of terrorists and an oppresive, iron-fisted government?

indeed extreme. but extremism is rife in this existence.

I am from Honduras, and I can assure that we live with constant violence. Rebels attack innocent people and all we can do is pray that it won't happen to us. I guess its just the first time you've heard about it.
