Now India has had its own 9/11. We note in the coverage that, at the last count, 10 people were responsible for the mess.

Can someone explain to me how 10 people are able to tyrannize hundreds, killing almost 200 and injuring another 200, without incurring a mass uprising? Even the police or SWAT or commandos or whatever they are called were refusing to shoot the perpetrators. Perhaps the advice given in India is the same as here – do not resist! Give them what they want! Except that what they seem to want these days is your death…

How in the world a large crowd of people can be manhandled by a very small group is stunning. I guess it is a sign of the times.
