We watched the blood-strewn carnage and screaming on TV and listened to the words of the leaders of the major powers' automatic and usual reaction to yet another example of people driven by a crazed willingness to indiscriminately kill the ordinary citizens of the nation whose armies and air forces have blown away their families and friends.

What good is going through the motions of official condemnation of criminal insanity? Anyone and everyone can condemn the twin women suicide bombers for taking so many lives, along with their own. But they are dead, and those that sent them are probably also willing to die, rather than desist.

After ad infinitum similar responses to suicide bombing in Sri Lanka, Israel, the United States (9/11 and sundry subsequent attempts), Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere, it's time for the public to question the absence of addressing the causes that make a person willing to end his or her life in order to call attention to the injustice of the human slaughter of equally innocent people.

In this case, the obvious is compounded by the fact that with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, so many ethnic nations gained independent status - even the Russian minorities of the toponym Rus or Ruthenia (Belarus) and the Kievan Rus (Ukraine) gained independence. Yet the new Russia could not, or would not, arrange to deal with a similar Chechnyan ethnic drive for independence except by the most clumsy and indiscriminate use of military firepower within a civilian population. And the so-called community of nations have largely looked away, thus giving tacit support.

Amazingly, there has been little public outcry that governments, whose citizens have been murdered, simply announce determination to continue to meet illegal terrorism with the same military solution that has brought about this self-repeating and unceasing calamity in the first place.

Those more than forty unfortunate Moscow subway riders and their grieving families deserve more than official condolences and promises to bring to justice those who were behind this particularly horrendous example of urban warfare. The two equally unfortunate women who turned themselves into walking bombs are free and beyond the fine words of righteous, but meaninglessly posturing, elected officials. Words and phrases are ultimately a silent defense of the homicidal activities of the armed forces of militarily strong, but morally weak, nations in a capitalist-governed world.
