Just one day

Can the world go for one whole day without a suicide attack on someone?

I asked myself after the Russian subway bombings 2 days ago and the answer seems to be emphatically no.

Since then, there have been attacks in the usual places (pakistan, Afganistan and Iraq), but we also got freebies in southern Thailand and another 2 attacks in Russia today.

It's 1:50pm on wednesday right now. Can we make it a whole 24 hours without a bombing?

No, these bombings are just going to encourage the rest of the terrorists around the world trying to make a name for themselves.

Just be thankful we don't live with this sort of violence in the U.S. We have homicides, gun violence, but you don't have to worry about being blown to bits when you ride the bus or metro.

No, but you do have to worry about operator error.

To be fair, there's also computer failure/lack of maintenance.

When the leaders of Hamas and al quiada start strapping bombs to themsleves and marching into our ranks then I will believe they have no other option.

One of my friends told a friend of his from London: "I don't know how you can live with all of these bombings, how do you do it?". This was during the height of the "Troubles", when the IRA was really ratcheting up its assault on the Brits. The Londoner replied: "Well, how do you live everyday not knowing whether or not you'll step out your doorstep and end up a shooting victim?".

In Northern Ireland, and then England, the violence was all about bombings. Here it's all about drivebys, and other shootings (Precisely what you said).

I had a British friend of mine ask me a few years ago how I felt about, or dealt with the gun violence in this country, and I told him that quite frankly, it does affect how I deal with individuals, and how I judge situations, but that it's such a part of growing up I simply see it as life.
