From Somalia to Mumbai - in one explosive lesson

What's the difference betwee the Somali pirates, Bonnie and Clyde and John Dillinger on the one hand and Al-Qaeda the Lashkar group that carried out the terror attack in India? A very big difference in some respects. Nobody lionized Somali pirates, and nobody marches in the streets with portraits of their leaders. No dialog groups call for understanding the "deap reasons" for piracy, bank robbery and bootlegging, as long as they are not furnished with religious or ideological motives. No Somali pirate supporting NGOs will be invited to the Durban II Racism conference either.
There is another big difference. The pirates don't kill people for no reason.
Other than that, there is no difference.
