As we're doing quite some ebusiness with balinese
hotels, the blast really hit us. I am usually going to bali at least once a year (next trip planned for February) and know the area where it happened quite well.
It is just horrible. Bali is such a peaceful island and people there are depending on tourism which is now drastically reduced. I can imagine the consequences...
"Terrorism cannot be overcome by the use of force because it does not address the complex underlying problems. In fact, the use of force may not only fail to solve the problems, it may exacerbate them and frequently leave destruction and suffering in its wake."
