There is no way to end terrorism. Its impossible. I dont want to go into a long winded post explaining all of it. But simply put, terrorism is the spawn of hateful/extreme thoughts/viewpoints/teachings.
These thoughts lead to actions. To prevent terrorism, we would need to prevent any hateful thoughts. To simply speak out against a terrorist, to dislike him, is a hateful thought. To bomb cities in Afghanistan after a select group of terrorists attack, is in it of it self terrorism.
Its a cycle, and it will never end.
The government is very deft about terrorism. They have created a war which will never end. They use this war to gain public support everytime it dips when they do....pretty much anything. It went from Al-Quida to Iraq to the Sunni Insurgents to Hezbullah. Palestinian terrorists are of course mixed in for good measure. The war on terror never kills an enemy without breeding a new one.
Our lives will never be terror free, and we must accept that. We cannot ruin all we stand for to prevent inevitable attacks ( ie-racial profiling, wire tapping, etc.)
Had to vent, would love to hear what you all have to say
