"Something was bound to come out somewhere, sometime" [LINK]

More bad karma, this in a letter from a Montreal resident to the Boston Globe:

Kudos to Derrick Jackson for his July 8 column ''A look in the mirror" and to the Globe for publishing it.

Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, ''an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere." The Bible teaches that ''you reap what you sow"; Hinduism (and others) speak of the law of Karma. Now, with all the death, destruction, and mayhem that Bush-Blair have given our world recently, something was bound to come out somewhere, sometime.

It is horrible and horrendously unjust that this something had to happen to innocent Londoners going about their daily business. There is no justification for attacking civilians in such a callous manner, irrespective of any argument that the US-UK invasion of Iraq has killed thousands of innocent civilians. As we all know, two wrongs do not make a right.

The problem is that the West is one of those two wrongs.

As yet, no comments:
