Our thoughts are with all those who've lost loved ones and suffered new wounds in these brutal terrorist attacks in Mumbai. The damage, of course, cannot be undone.But we can still forestall future violence. The Economistmakes a good point:"...this attack on its people and landmarks represents an enormous test of Mumbai's civic temperament. Its assailants may have wished to provoke a backlash against Muslim inhabitants-which in turn would help to radicalize India's vast Muslim minority. Even after the last of the terrorists have been killed or captured, that is how they could still hope to win."And, conversely, the terrorists lose if India and Pakistan avoid the course of greatest belligerence.
