Ending the bloodshed

September 13, 2006

The BBC reports:

Colombian gangsters face sex ban
Wives and girlfriends of gang members in one of Colombia’s most violent cities have called a sex ban in a bid to get their men to give up the gun…Studies found that local gang members were drawn to criminality by the desire for status, power, and sexual attractiveness, not economic necessity, Colombian radio reported.”

Could this, I wonder, be the solution to the seemingly intractable problems in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Southern Thailand and elsewhere? Come on ladies, give it a go! (Whether it would work in controlling the outbreak of violence within the Labour party, however, I very much doubt).
