Blind violence

On Monday in Athens a police officer was shot by unidentified persons using a Kalashnikov. Only a couple of days previously shots were aimed at a police bus and a regional train. Now there are fears that the "Revolutionary Struggle" terrorist organisation could be behind the attacks. The daily Ta Nea asks what will be the outcome of this new wave of terror. "What will be the next step in this tango of violence? It doesn't take much imagination to see that a new episode in the 'terrorism' series has begun - with different features, of course. ... In the 1980s professional attacks were made against certain targets, de facto without any support from the young generation. Today this seems to have changed. ... We are facing a scattered form of violence that is all the more dangerous because it is blind. ... In the 1980s and 1990s the political system and bipartisanship created stability. Today there is widespread contempt for institutions and politics ... which is only compounded by the economic crisis."
