killing 'em with kindness

Let me see if I've got this straight:

An isolated indigenous tribe in Peru has emerged from their jungle home to beg for food.

The tribe has been designated by the government as one with which Peruvian society may not consort for fear that tribal members may lack an immune system capable of withstanding the germs to which Peruvian society is generally immune.

Simultaneously, the government has allowed logging and other interests to gobble up the hunting and farming grounds once used by the tribe for sustenance.

Wouldn't machine guns be more humane?
