Senseless Deaths

Every so often one is left in a state of bewilderment at the escapades of Muslim fanatics. A group of mountain climbers were working their way up Mt. Nanga parbat in nothern Pakistan when a group of Islamic militants entered their camp and blasted away until nine men from China and the Ukraine were dead. These individuals were not linked in any way, shape or form with “the West” and had absolutely no connection to the CIA unless there was  interest in Washington about mountains in Pakistan. The Islamists simply shot up some people and made certain few would ever visit Pakistan in order to enjoy a mountain climbing vacation.

There must be a reason for this attack. Then again, when reason and  logic are involved it is difficult encountering this aspect of human thinking among those connected with the Taliban, with al-Qaeda or any group that  has goals connected to human life.
