Terrorist Tension

Imad Mughniyah was active in terrorism all his adult life. He was behind, for instance, the 1983 bombing in Beirut that killed 241 American soldiers. Here's what the LA Times front page article said about his death by car bomb: it's "likely to further aggravate tensions in Lebanon and the rest of the Middle East."

That was in the first sentence. Seemed kind of odd to me. I'd have thought the story would concentrate on the killing--who was killed, how, who's suspected--with a mention of its effect on the situation further down.

It's tough on terrorists these days. There'd be so much less tension around if they could plot their bombings in peace and quiet.
