Vandalize and Terrorize in the Name of What?

A few days ago I posted a few lines concerning the assassination of Benazir Bhutto to point readers to an online television site DawnTV that offers Pakistan-related news up-to-date, quite often before any other online source (audio, video and/or text). Dawn is famous for welcoming more and more innovative technologies.

I was in the middle of a voice over Internet teleconference (participants using Gizmo Project, FWD, Truphone, and more) a few days, and one participant mentioned some thought-provoking pictures of young Pakistanis' vandalism and you may call it... terrorism against their own fellow citizens. Why do people do this? Do the victims appear anonymous and not real, like those in a video game? Is it because there is no one stopping the "bullies?" Do the "terrorists" feel it is their right? Is this a form of frustration release? Why this form of release?

You can participate in a conversation of questions, hope and search for positive action at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6645203399. Maybe listen to U2's Bono and Pavarotti's words and please don't be silent.

That is exactly what I referred to in the discussion of Taimur's picture at http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1959859&op=1&o=all&view=all&subj=6645203399&aid=-1&id=749520724 regarding the direct aftermath of Hurricane Ivan in Pensacola, Florida.
