Bonds, stupas and bullets



The media are full of the Bond Scam and the demolition of an ancient Stupa. Fingers have been pointed at minor bank officers and bulldozer drivers. But never is there any hint as to the masterminds behind these man-made calamities. Once again, I recall that master of espionage fiction Eric Ambler's "Mask of Dimitrios". His protagonist says "It is not the finger on the trigger we must discover, but who paid for the bullet".


Ambler's hero discovered the villain. But will we ever know "who paid for the bullets" in the bond and stupa cases?


T.D.
