Carnage in Karachi

A suicide bombing killed at least 124 people and injured more than 320 around midnight Thursday in Karachi, Pakistan, near the motorcade of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, according to hospital and police sources.
The pattern is so painfully familiar that no one even asks a simple question: why should so many innocent people die because of political squabble? Why had mass murder become so acceptable in some areas of this world?
