That slaughter in Sri Lanka was carried out by some

well educated rich guys.

https://www.smh.com.au/world/asia/sri-lanka-bombings-the-wealthy-family-behind-the-suicide-attacks-20190425-p51h0n.html

One of the ringleaders of the Sri Lankan bomb attacks was the son of a spice tycoon who was "brainwashed" by his radical younger brother.

The first images have emerged of Inshaf Ahmed Ibrahim, the suicide bomber and alleged mastermind of the atrocity that killed 359 people.

Security services are understood to be examining his links to Britain after a source confirmed he had travelled to the UK frequently in recent years. Ibrahim, 33, blew himself up at the Cinnamon Grand hotel restaurant just before 9am local time on Easter Sunday.

Separately, one of the bombers is understood to have studied in Australia.

Ibrahim's younger brother Ilham also killed himself when he detonated a suicide bomb at the Shangri-La hotel, also in the capital Colombo, at almost exactly the same time. Their attacks claimed the lives of at least 41 foreigners, including all eight British victims - three of them children.

1. That is in fact the usual pattern.

Osama bin Laden for example was quite wealthy.

One man's terrorist is another man's entitled rich bastard.

It's not the sort of thing desperate poor oppressed people do, despite the rhetoric.

It's people who like the idea of it because they are bored.

3. Otherwise it would be revenge for something else.

Ambrose Bierce :

Some White Christians engaged in driving Chinese Heathens out of an American town found a newspaper published in Peking in the Chinese tongue, and compelled one of their victims to translate an editorial. It turned out to be an appeal to the people of the Province of Pang Ki to drive the foreign devils out of the country and burn their dwellings and churches. At this evidence of Mongolian barbarity the White Christians were so greatly incensed that they carried out their original design.
