Terrorist attack busted

Bombay Addict alerts me via email to a terror attack that's been averted with the arrest of a couple of terrorists in Mysore. DNA says that the terrorists "were trying to attack the Infosys campus" in Bangalore, while NDTV reports that it was a plot "to attack Karnataka's Assembly, the Vidhan Soudha and the adjoining Vikas Soudha." It wouldn't be unusual if they had mutiple targets in the same city -- there is a precedent for that, after all.

Meanwhile, Manmohan Singh says about terrorism that "[f]rom an occasional footnote, it has become a hydra-headed monster." Hmm. The poor man's efforts at fighting it will, thus, be unsuccessful as long as he restricts himself to lobbing off heads. Gotta get to the heart of the monster.

And where is that?
