    There is no rational way, if that is what you are looking for. People who are terrorists are irrational, they are brainwashed.

    They believe that they are heroes, martyrs.

    We have to show them that we are not scared of them. I think it will take the better part of a generation to let them see that their death is senseless and accomplishes nothing.

    If we look back in history, there have always been religious wars or death based upon religion.

    Hitler killed Jews, in Ireland Catholics hate protestants, there were the Crusades. For some reason, religion which is supposed to make people good and love one another seems to incite many to hatred and violence.

    it is type of morbid to imagine about which could no longer it? The results of a terrorist attack is poor, for the victims. it is an atrocity, against the law adverse to humanity. As for the monetary equipment, there are a form of aspects to think about. between the significant issues that failed with George W. Bush became that he tried to computer screen an previous formulation, and did no longer have fulfillment, because the international replaced. What formulation: warfare is an effective deal, warfare is sweet for the monetary equipment. His father, before going to Gulf and placing Kuwait free from Saddam, already had contracts signed with businesses that ought to benefit on the aftermath of the warfare. George Bush tried to do an similar, on Iraq. yet terrorism, today, replaced the way wars are fougth and received. If he had succeeded, he may nevertheless be everyday, today. yet, besides, warfare can nevertheless be a "good" funding, issues can change back. So, in end, perchance top right here punitive warfare, after a terrorist attack, may develop the monetary equipment up. it is plausible, in a sad, poor way, yet plausible.

    The 300,000 to 500,000 civilians dead in Iraq are not Terrorist. They are in fact "liberated". Only a real Idiot would think Democracy is a gift to be given, it can not be "installed". Democracy must be won by the blood of those who want it. In the end Iran will control Iraq no matter what we do there and we have the death of over 2500 of our brave Americans, we have over 18,000 wounded. As to your question, Terrorist will never stand and fight our Marines any where in the world. They do the dirty work behind your back not in war. Our lesson in Veit-Nam was that we can not win "Guerrilla warfare". Terrorist will not fight face to face.

    Terrorism is born by hatred, we as a nation have sown the seeds of Hatred all over the world. We will reap what we have sown. In Islamic countries 10,000 Bin Ladens were born today.

    BTW, do you know what Gods greatest commandment was?

    BTW, we have 22 million illegals in the USA. How many are terrorist?. Republicans want more not less illegals.

    I am not so sure there is a way to stop terrorism everywhere. I suppose terrorism against the United States can be stopped by our government not picking fights all the time. After all when two nations are fighting on the other side of the earth it is best for the USA to stay out of it. But our government can’t seem to do that.

    Do you know why so many countries hate the United States?

    1.The United States has military bases all over the Muslim holy lands. Our government pays off the kings, and other powers to allow the bases to be there. On the bases our troop are exempt from many of the laws that exist in some of those countries(example: Females are allowed to drive, and not wear burkes). This angers many people.

    2.The United States supports Israel. Israel is a common enemy, to many, but not all Muslims groups. The United States gives Israel lots of money weapons, and nukes, but tells Israel’s enemies that they can’t have the same weapons.

    3.Many countries, including the United States, impose rules on other countries. Do you remember the British women that was arrested, in Afghanistan for teaching Afghan women about Christianity? The allied forces freed her from jail. But, why? She committed a capitol offence. At the time that she was arrested, it was illegal to do so. We may not agree with their laws, but seriously, those were the laws there, and that women chose to go there to break them regardless if she was doing good or not.

    We may not agree with their ways. We may not agree with the terror tactics. But we need to stay out of their way, and protect ourselves. The rest of the world must learn to get along on their own.

    I know there are places, only a dozen miles from my home, where people are killed every day, over drugs and money. I gave a great way of dealing with them. I stay way from them!

    Terrorist is just another word for communist. It is a "fear word" substitution updated from the cold war era. When Columbus "discovered" America the word was Savage. History keeps repeating itself over and over.

    Let's face it, in the 90's Americans were getting too comfortable with their security, a change had to brought on.

    The American government is the real terrorist, they blew our proudest landmark to scare us into submission. It worked. Since 9\11 our freedoms have been slowly eroded. Your phones are tapped, your bank records are monitored; Slowly, then suddenly we are living in a police state. All of this change, brought on by fear of "terrorists". A foreign enemy to be afraid of is what was needed to push forth a neo-conservative agenda. War would end if it were illegal to profit from it. Follow the money. Nothing motivates people like fear.

    You can stop false flag terrorism simply by asking questions. And DEMANDING answers.

    "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

    -- James "Father of the Constitution" Madison

    Terrorist groups form because a large body of people, either a govenment or a religon, has done somthing to anger them.

    But it is not as simple as saying sorry. Sorry won't cut it for all of the people buried in rubble on 9/11. What we need to do is kill (and I do not mean KILL, I mean shutdown) all the terrorist organizations that are around now without somehow making two more for every one we shutdown.

    Or give them what they want.

    Either way its really hard.

    It kind of helps when we stop being one.

    Fuzzy math:

    When George was in the 2000 debates, he insisted he can spend more on virtually everything under the sun and cut taxes while he does it. Now we're $8 trillion dollars in debt.

    He, his father, and Ronnie Reagan insisted that if you give astronomical tax breaks to the wealthiest people in the Country, eventually it will trickle down to everyone.

    Now the rich are mega-rich and everyone else is ultra-poor.

    Now George is saying:

    ** Our Bombs

    + Their Bombs

    + A Whole Lot More of Our Bombs

    = No Bombs

    Yale's math classes must really be pathetic.

    By everyone gathering in pray at the same time and holding hands while they do it and pray for this in Jesus name for he said if two or more are gathered in my name and ask it will be done the world would probably come to a end on that day for it is written that in the last days there would be wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes in diverse places this is happening now and it wont be long before the end is here because it sure is near.

    Don't sponsor them politically or monetarily. Condemn them in public. Go after them when necessary to prevent future terrorist actions. Make it an us-versus-them issue, and realize there is no sane justification for their actions against others. Make all educated people aware that it just doesn't stop at third-world country establishments, but can be just as serious in dominant societies if not put down.

    I have a solution, but unforuntatly since no one has superpowers, I dont know how to enforce it. In a comic book I read, there was a super hero was ruling a country. He was giving a speech to his peple and someone rushed into the crowd with a bomb strapped to him, before he coudl set the bomb off, the super hero dove into the crowd, flew the man up into the air and ripped the explosives off his body before he could detonate them. Next he ripped the terrorists arm off and asked who sent him threatening to rip off more limbs if he did not tell. Then (presumably) the super hero went to the guy who sent him, and so on and so forth and elimiated terrorism in his country. It'd be nice if we had superheroes.
