#1 ...I've known several missionaries - all of them good, decent, and intelligent people who would never have pulled a stunt like this.

#2 Friendly fire? An Englishman warns after the fact? What exactly is the Denis Giles connection? Is the May Government still transporting people to the Andamans? Are the Sentinelese actually indigenous prison guards?

Could it be that the incident had nothing to with Johnny Chau or his religion at all? Could the Sentinelese actually be Pacific island environmentalists, fighting to keep plastics and man-made resins (kayaks) off their beaches.

These issues and others, must be run to ground. I recommend the budgeting of a UN Special Commission on the Andamans, and the appointment of a High Commissioner with headquarters at the Grand Millennium Hotel Kuala Lumpur. The candidate should be someone well versed in separatists movements and people who generally wish to be left the fok alone.

A ten year study should just about do it. I forgot to mention the float plane and pilot.

#3 bad day to quit sniffing glue, but whether ‘savages’ or grizzly bears, invading their space to better ‘understand’ them usually results in a Darwin award

But dude, you can't judge us by our actions. It's our *intentions* that matter. Admittedly, explaining this to grizzly bears is a bit problematic. OK, savages too.

#6 I remember reading about them after the Boxing Day Tsunami(2004): the Indian Navy flew a helicopter over in a look-see and supposedly got pelted with "poison" arrows. It is interesting that there are still pockets resisting Modernity out there...

#7 I remember reading about them after the Boxing Day Tsunami(2004): the Indian Navy flew a helicopter over in a look-see and supposedly got pelted with "poison" arrows.

More "interesting" yet, the helicopter pilot reportedly refused to drop below 5,000 feet AGL.

#10 Good Dim Sum at the 'Lai Ching Yuen' and what appears to be an awesome Breakfast Buffet at 'The Mill Cafe', B.

Ten years there might not be enough.

#11 Islanders asserting their traditional sovereignty. Must be racis or something like that.

#13 Still wondering how this fool would have communicated with them, but that's just me.
