    Can We Stop Terrorism?

    Is terrorism here to stay or can we actually stop it? How do we educate our children how to think and not what to believe?

    I think extremism will always be a part of humanity and that terrorism isn't limited to only specific groups.  I don't really believe that we will ever rid ourselves of it entirely, but I think education and awareness of foreign policies and how they contribute to it is a good start.  I also believe that natural evolution of the human species may do a lot to combat it. Unfortunately, violence is a part of human nature.  It always has been, and will likely always be, but hopefully to a lesser extent in the future.

    People that want to kill will find a way to kill. This is especially true of those who are willing to strap a bomb onto their bodies or willing to crash a plane into a building for their cause.
    Each time will kill one "leader" another steps up to take his place. Every time they lose a key member of a group it just angers them and makes them more determined. Having said that terrorism is not something that is "new" it was around long before 9/11 took place. That was America's official invitation to the party.
    As long as there are groups who are dissatisfied with their station in life and blame other nations for their unhappiness there will be terrorism.
    Their leaders know they're never going to "win" or "take over" the world  and suddenly have all 7 Billion of us fall in line with what they believe. They're content with disrupting the status quo and striking fear in the hearts of the effected areas they attack.
    Terrorism is not a "conventional war" that can be won because there are lots of splinter terrorist groups who are not united. You can't reason with someone whose goal is to bring about the end of the world according to what they've been taught in their religion. The terrorists are not looking to gain land or wealth. There is nothing we can offer them short of our deaths that would pacify them.

    It is much like a cancer. It cannot be killed if you do not acknowledge that it exists and in what form and to what degree it is growing. 
    Some have said here that there is no difference between Islamic terrorism and the Christian crazies who have bombed abortion clinics. This is to say that there is no difference between a level 4 colon cancer and a level one skin cancer.
    Your picture of the World Trade Center being bombed by Islamic terrorists and your generic reference to terrorism is  contradiction in terms and is indicative of the political refusal to acknowledge a stage 4 cancer.
    We are in a bar fight and the guy that wins is the guy that wants to win.

    No, you cannot completely wipeout the terrorism the reason of it being rooted in our lives from many centuries in one form or another but you can limit and even eliminate to some extent by supporting the right leaders and spreading more of love then hatred.
