The war on Terroism by definition ,can NEVER end ?

    Who can be so blind as  to believe that it could ever end ?  Terror and all that we know about it ,  is eternal , and so the war  against it !  Much like  the history of war itself . Isn't   terrorism  simply the weaker  opponent's    offensive  action against an enemy , by definition ?. 

    How blind to this by percentage do you think the masses  are ?

      I don't see that as a very good definition.  Rather, terrorism is intentional targeting of non-combatant centers/peoples for the express purpose of spreading fear and horror.  911, beheading journalists, shooting schools of children; none of these can have any military effect at all.  Just fear.

      Not really a good definition. There can be no association between a government and a terrorist group, and the terrorist group will still assault the other state for, simply, having different ideals than them. That state could have no distinction for the specific group.

      The masses are not blind to it but they are seemingly helpless to be of any effect against it. The War On Terror will end, but not as most would think. Extreme ideologies, be it global assimilation, economics, theology, technology, medicine, mythology -even sexuality- can all be classified as forms of terrorization, depending on the perspective of the viewer and expression of the doer. Eradication or fusion of one leads to another, to a shift in power. The small percentage of leaders, worldwide, know this. They also know an end must come. The game is to see who ends up with the most marbles when the dust settles.

      In recent days, this particular pressing by the group known as Daesh was foreseen nearly 75 years ago when The Plan for Balkanization of the Middle Eastern region began. Under the guise of a theology, a powerful one at that (5 Billion members strong), the leaders of the world have decided to use these people as pawns to further the end game. History notes this was previously done with Christianity, as well as Hebrew/Jewish, Persian/Babylonian, Macedonian/Greek, pre-Christian Roman -even Buddhism, via Genghis Khan...

      The few control the many, which is, perhaps, the greatest terror of all.

    Why did everything start to get labeled Terror or Terrorism?  After sept.11th every violent incident got labelled terror. This created the so called need for security which by default is causing the loss of our freedoms.

      Religion if based on fear.
      The world is run on fear rather than love first.

      Fear is your terror and more love is you solution.

      Quite frankly terrorism has been around quite a while !  Modern terrorism probably began in the mid east yet also  long before then  !     The bigger question might actually be ; Why don't soo many people understand that the war on terror is an unending war , that  some form of Gitmo  will always be required  to house the terrorist  POW's, AND  ,that  there may be some that  can never be set free ?

      Those of you who wish to close Gitmo  might offer up an importation of these  terrorists to your own country ! Fat chance there .

        The UK willingly accepted back citizens who'd been accused of terrorism and held in Gitmo but with no evidence. They were quickly released back into obscurity by UK authorities!

    The war on terrorism will never end because it is how governments justify and make their turnovers. Academi, Raytheon, Dyncorp are our government 's supplier and masters. If Obama decides to wage war in the US against citizens or abroad the lobbies behind him are both his CEO and supplier. They work in tandem. They coexist. If the US citizen is not afraid, he will refuse any intervention abroad, it is the reason why we have to stimulate with few bombings here and there... In Boston, in New York (sept 11). Who can justify an increase of military, intelligence, surveillance budget if the nation is peaceful, tranquil. No, our government has to shake our torpor.
    Terrorism will end with economical collapse. When our government will face restrictions, when our taxes won't flow anymore in their pockets to act with impunity then a new paradigm will be drawn.

      I don't think we'd have heard anything about them if they had have been disposed of by MI5 or indeed anybody.

    You see John , I believe that's what would have happened before the big  political correctness  surrender  of action against , talking about action ,   and its what many, many people wish would happen now .   Refund the CIA it's deposit to the leftist media and go back to the days when Langley  was the  whole  war machine against  world terror .

    In a way that's what's happening now ," secret agents" a Micro-war , drones , intelligence , rockets , Why do you think that the world just adores  James Bond --yet can't get out of its cradle in the morning against really bad people !

    Enjoy your freedom of movement !

      You mean PC has stopped the secret service from just disappearing people without trial or evidence?

      Praise be to PC.

    Don't worry though John ,  dissidents  are just that , they don't disappear here  they just multiply  although  the last ones to commit to the costs of freedoms , and the first to whine about the lack of them !   Ahh - the  cries that come from the cradles of freedoms ! May they one day learn to  contribute  the costs of them !

      What are you on about?
      I was talking about innocent people being held in Gitmo with no evidence and no chance of an honest trial.

        Your proof of their innocence (you make the claim, after all) and that there is no evidence?  Or are you just talking through your hat, making claims you cannot substantiate?

          I can't be bothered searching for specific people but here's the first one I found

          I don't suppose an apology will be forthcoming? No, I thought not.
