    Bear kills militants in Kashmir

    Bear kills militants in Kashmir

    A bear killed two militants after discovering them in its den in Indian-administered Kashmir, police say.

    Two other militants escaped, one of them badly wounded, after the attack in Kulgam district, south of Srinagar.

    The militants were armed with AK-46s but were taken by surprise - police found the remains of pudding they had made to eat when the bear attacked.

    It is thought to be the first such incident since Muslim separatists took up arms against Indian rule in 1989.
    I wasn't sure if to post this here or in the Weird section, but don't think that this is as much weird as just a long shot.

    So basically the fact that since guns had to be handed to the officials, the wild animals have been able to flourish and breed more and their numbers have started to increase. It's almost like an unintended anti-insurgency strategy, making the wilderness less safe to hide in. Ok, so the tally so far is 2 dead and 2 wounded in several several years, so maybe not the most effective strategy...
    ...we honor leaders for what they achieve, but we often prefer to close our eyes to the way they achieve it...

    In the real world, politics is compromise and democracy is politics. Anyone who would be a statesman has to be a successful politician first. Also, a leader has to deal with people and nations as they are, not as they should be. As a result, the qualities required for leadership are not necessary those that we would want our children to emulate - unless we wanted them to be leaders.

    This bear deserves a medal and a promotion.

    An intrepid journalist caught this photo of the Ursine Amphibious Assault unit:

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
