    There is no way to end terrorism.
    Throughout the history of the world there has always been unrest with groups/terrorists looking to overthrow and topple governments.
    World peace is an unrealistic goal.
    It's impossible to please every group!
    People who have less will always want more and those who are religious will believe they are fulfilling their destiny by attacking the powers that be. Nothing will pacify them!
    In the weeks after April 6, 1994, 800,000 men, women, and children perished in the Rwandan genocide. As of today, over 480,000 people have been killed, and over 2.8 million people are displaced by genocide in Darfur.
    And yet ISIS and Islamist terrorists capture all the headlines. Why is that? It's because Americans have been killed along with other western citizens.
    My point is throughout history there has and always will be terrorism whether we acknowledge it or not. For some people it's not a travesty until we are the ones being threatened or attacked.

    By being more loving and helping others to be it too. There is a strong lack of showing love in the world. There's too much hate. If everybody would have the initiative to speak to neighbors and strangers more often and be more friendly then that would be a good start to reducing it.

    I agree with word55 that indeed there is so much hate in the world right now which fires up terrorism. Terrorism is a result of misunderstanding and unresolved conflicts that pile up through time, though it might be quite impossible to stop terrorism but it can be reduced by opening communication between one another to give room for understanding. Discrimination should be eliminated because it also fuels hate within countries, especially in terms of religion. There should be respect and compassion within one another no matter what they believe in and what or who they are.

    As dashingscorpio stated, "There is no way to end terrorism."

    And I will take that a step further by saying, there is no way to reduce terrorism. The only thing that the US can, and should, do is continually take extensive measures to protect the nation and it residents from terrorist attacks.

    Remove all your self-concern, and instead be concerned for others.

    Lead by example. Be responsible for all the evil in the world. Remain fearless and confident, yet utterly humble. These are not mutually exclusive, if you find the right state of mind and heart.

    When enough of us do this, then terrorism will cease to exist in the world. In fact, all evil will cease, because all evil comes from self-concern.
