How do you defeat terrorism?

Attacking the leaders only breeds new leaders... ignoring it only leads to more attacks... and giving in to it only makes others believe that these tactics actually work...

so how do you defeat terrorism? can it be done?

Personal wealth, steady and good employment (not Nike sweatshops), and secular education.

Other questions that have been asked in the past:



What can be done to control the Negroes from going wild, burning and destroying property? (circa 1940s-1960s)


What can be done to stop the pinko, drug-crazed hippies from running amuck, taking over college campuses and ruining our way of life? (circa mid 60s – early 70s)


What can be done to get them crazy women from marching in the streets, smoking and wearing bridges? (circa 1910s- 1920s)


What can be done to get them savages from doing that “Ghost Dance”? (late 1800s)

I think you have to ask what causes the terrorism? Is there anyway to curve the hatred of your country without sacrificing security. I think like Melon said, education is key.

Not the way we are handling it now. Waging war on countries, tightening security, racial profiling, etc. none of these moves will defeat terrorism it may be a band aid solution that just causes and allows the recruitment of others.

It would be interesting to see if during the questioning of all these assumed terrorists we have locked up if anyone is questioning these individuals how they were recruited, why they chose to do this, etc. Of course this would be ridiculous to think they would waste their time with these questions, because the root of the problem will dissapear once they end this "war".

Perhaps by steps? The first thing you do is identify the cause(s) of terrorism. Then you try to see how these can either be controlled or eradicated. It's been said that there are two main causes of terrorism: poverty and lack of democracy. States like Afghanistan and Pakistan, which have bred many terrorists are good examples. If you want to argue that bin Laden and Co. are wealthy guys from wealthy families, well, you're right, but they take advantage of impoverished people in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Sudan, and God knows where else, to sell their messages of hatred and fanaticism.

You need a balance. You are not going to defeat it with education and economics alone.

You need to be strong on two fronts. Unfortunately, I believe we are only strong on one front.

A new leader will take over, at least for the first few hits. The attacks do not "breed" new leaders. The existing schools breed the leaders.

I don't think it can ever really be defeated. I mean, look at the 'war on crime' which has always existed. All we can do is attempt to use positive means (education) and negative means (enforcement) together to reduce the amount as much as possible.

You're probably right. The problem right now is that there is *not* a balance.

Who is responsible to create the balance? Plenty of the world's wealth flows into the middle east.

We argue economics and education, but what do wealthy muslims do for the Palestinians? Besides supplying weapons and building schools that advocate the destruction of all jews?
