“It has been our own, in a sense, 11th of September; it’s a tragedy.”
More than 180 are feared dead in the Bali nightclub bombing. Is this getting any play on foreign news outlets? Here in Australia, it’s being treated like it was domestic terrorism. Bali’s pretty close and to Australians, it’s like the Ibiza of this hemisphere. Everyone goes there for their big vacations. I read an estimate that 75% of the wounded are probably Australian. Several community football teams were there celebrating the end of their season. This will probably end up being the greatest loss of Australian life during peacetime.
I thought we were away from it all here. I thought by avoiding Europe and the U.S. we’d be free from the bombings and the anthrax and the snipers and the threats. Nope. Sometimes it just sucks to be a human.
