    I think there are many types of terrorists. Some are idiots who think blowing up people for a higher cause is just -- this is patently false, illogical, and wrong-headed.

    Some have themselves seen horror perpetrated by their targets, ie have lost a loved one, or been humiliated by a larger state (probably a lot of this goes on in Palestinian terrorism) -- more understandable but still no excuse.

    Some of it is caused by poverty, and most particularly unemployment -- a world economy where millions upon millions of young men are bored and poor, because there are no jobs is a recipe for disaster (much of what goes on in both Iraq and Israel/Palestine is probably related to this). Boredom breeds vulnerability to idiotic ideas / solutions

    Lack of democracy, injustice and lack of freedom of speech can cause terrorism. Though many use the path of terrorism in the hope of gaining quick money, but more or less and the biggest reason of terrorism is when some people or a group people think they need a change and they are too weak to fight in any other way rather than violence-perhaps terrorism is noticed by media very easily. What is the breeding ground of terrorism-mainly underdeveloped and poor countries,though exception to it possible like minority groups of a country can go for terrorism to establish their rights.

    The development of the modern media has contributed greatly to the rise of terrorism.Images are conveyed around the world very quickly and pictures can invoke an emotional response much more effectively than written text.Antagonists in mainly underdeveloped countries have learned how to manipulate audiences in influential countries.The media traffic travels both ways and the third world has seen the standard of living in the first world and they resent the inequality they perceive between between the two.They also resent past and present interference in their economic and political affairs by first world countries.
