This is scary news, how much longer are the Balinese authorities going to allow terrorist cells to operate in their country? Taking 6 years to sort out one very serious bombing doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. I, for one, will avoid Bali for quite some time.

I’m actually heartened to see that it’s taken six years to execute the terrorists.  Sounds like demoncracy in action which should demotivate other terrorists. The warning recommends that foreigners reconsider visiting Bali at a different time than the executions.  What more could we ask for? They have to commit crimes before they are punished.
