“These people … They’re sworn to destroy us. Forget peace for now. We have to show them we’re strong.
We have laws, we represent civilization. Some people say we can’t afford to be civilized. I’ve always resisted such people. But I don’t know who these maniacs are or where they come from… …Every civilization finds it necessary to negotiate compromises with its own values. I have made a decision.” – Golda Meir before ordering assassinations as retribution for Black September as quoted in Munich.
‘All this blood comes back to us.’ – Robert. A member of the assassination squad.
Munich was definitely the movie to watch at the end of a day where I heard conspiracy theories without being able to respond. – ‘The govt is not telling us but the death toll from the attacks is over a 1000. CST was the site of the worst carnage. Public bol rahi hai ki wahan pe cheh sau se zyaada log mare hain. ‘
The evidence to support this claim… the shooting happened on platform 11 – 14 just before the departure time of 3 major outstation trains. Whoever heard of CST being less than crowded at 8:30 on a weekday night… The police never releases 100% of the death toll…. only ever state 50% of it.
Solutions suggested included bombing pakistan and targeted assassinations. And admiration for the rally (I heard more anger and intolerance on the soundbytes… but that is another thing entirely)
Sigh. What a world we live in.
