Thailand Wages Peace

Thailand, rocked by continuing violence in its Muslim-dominated provinces, tries to wage peace.

Millions of folded paper cranes fluttered down from warplanes in the skies over southern Thailand Sunday as the air force completed a mission of peace aimed at expressing the nation's hope for an end to separatist violence in the Muslim-dominated region.
Read the whole thing, then answer me this: How many times now have we seen radical Islamist groups try similar "hearts and minds" tactics? Even once? No, I thought not. And can you even imagine them doing so? Which kinda sums up the state of the world today.
