What can we do to combat the rise of Terrorism and terrorist threats in the world today?
Turn off the TV.... The threat of terrorism and terrorists is not as severe as politicians and the media would like us to believe. If you ask me the Terrorists won after 9/11 when we all became obsessed with Terrorism.
Interesting yes I agree I think 9/11 was a turning point for the world and certainly the US foreign and domestic policy - do you agree that this has changed significantly since 9/11 WTC attack?
Of course I agree that the US foreign and domestic policy has drastically changed since 9/11... who wouldn't the US foreign policy went from "probably a bad idea" to "dear god this is really a bad idea".
The best way to combat terrorism is to understand the roots of it.
I do NOT say that any terrorists are to be excused for their evil deeds, but what I do say is that in order to combat "any enemy" then you first of all have to understand the roots of it.
Some (maybe even many) terrorist are just crackpots who have to be found and prosecuted.
But there are other terrorists, who became terrorists because they were treated bad by the local and/or global society. It could be imposed (unjust and unfair) poverty. IF we don't combat poverty, and help these people (anywhere in the World) THEN those people will easily be recruited to the armies of terror.
