*** As tragic as the loss of innocent lives and destruction of 
property involved in this quarter century
old conflict is, I never fail to be confounded by the mindless 
reactions  of those who could be  otherwise considered Assam's best, 
every time it erupts, again and again. I would argue that it is such 
inability and/or unwillingness of Assam's intelligentsia to raise 
their voices in support of finding a political solution to the 
never-ending conflict that has helped keep it alive and indirectly 
help  sustain it.

*** I will be very interested in hearing from the great Chidambaram 
who declared all-out war against ULFA and no-negotiation, when, a 
couple of months or so back, wasn't it?  I presume the intent was to 
bring the conflict to an end with his war machine.  If so, are our 
highly intelligent netters and
Assam 's intelligentsia asking Chidu for any explanation?  Is his 
no-talk policy paying dividends finally?

But I should know! That would be an intellectually monumental hurdle 
to overcome  for  the self-righteous, besides being too easy.

>Those who are supporting these terrorists acts are no lesser evil.

*** Famous last words!
