    Usually I am the LAST one to blame the victim. But in this case...The Sentinelese...have rebuffed all contact with the modern world, firing a shower of arrows at anyone who comes within range.
    The two men killed...were fishing illegally for mud crabs off North Sentinel Island.

    Sentinelese, as in, they live on Sentinel Island. It is illegal to fish for crabs in that area. Because that Island doesn`t belong to you. Trespassers will be shot. With arrows. This would be legal in some U.S. states as defense of property. (In other states it is illegal to use deadly force in defense of property, only in defense of person). So I have no problem with what the primitive tribe did. These fishermen were stealing. It was illegal to go crabbing there. Off limits. So they got killed.

    Well, I`m glad that their autonomy is protected. While I understand that the family of the fishermen may wish to perform a `proper` burial if these people are hostile toward outsiders, why pester them over corpse recovery?

    More like "checks date and sees that this is from 2006". Having been published in February, this was, in fact from before April Fools. 7 years ago. Good work.

    One small step above this neolithic tribe are the devout, hardcore Arabs. Just this past week, they suggested paralyzing a man who was found guilty of paralyzing his friend in a fight. Turns out, the convicted man couldn`t come up with the $200k+ to pay the victim off, so eye-for-an-eye it is.

    Well, the Sentinelese have made their postion clear; the don`t want contact with rest of the world. In my opinion they have made the right choice as contact would almost certainly destroy them.

    So leave them alone and in particular don`t get drunk while poaching on their turf.

    How do you work out that the Saudis are a step above a tribe who just want to be left alone and not robbed, exploited and wiped out by disease?

    The outside world is a real, present and demonstrably lethal threat to their existence; it was self defence.

    So my boredom got the best of me and I decided to look up North Sentinel Island on Google Earth. It`s pretty awesome; not a single picture or road or any other thing. It is simply a jungle island.
