The Middle East has had long-term double-digit unemployment. So, no, they really don't have anything else to do.

I wish the media would cut the ominous background music and sensationalizing of the events. This just increases anxiety instead of lessening it. The role of the media and government should be to reduce fears not increase them, the terrorists are already doing an excellent job of increasing fear. I agree with extra precautions but someone should put this in perspective for everyone.

Sorry doesn't cut it, recent terror plots have involved native born men who practice Islam, even middle class guys who had a strong reversion to faith - they are a step removed from the restless Arab youth and in many instances they are not Arabs at all, rather of South Asian and even European extraction.

Wrong answer

I've been unemployed and didn't attempt to kill people for sport.

If you faced living in a nation with 25%+ unemployment with no prospect of that changing in your lifetime and a government so corrupt and autocratic and unchangeable as to not care, I think you'd change your story. I say this, because many terrorist organizations, including Hamas and Hezbollah, have wide appeal for their social services, which fill the void that government has left behind. After they feed you and give you money, they then convince you to give your undying loyalty to their cause. It's quite a racket, really, because both Hamas and Hezbollah are held in very high esteem in the Middle East because of their social services.

The Shi'ite minority in Lebanon, for instance, is also the poorest demographic in pluralistic Lebanon. As Lebanon has also historically ignored Southern Lebanon, in terms of infrastructure building, the people look to Hezbollah. In fact, many people have mentioned that most of the paved roads in Southern Lebanon were built by Israel back when they occupied it. It's conditions like this that perpetuate terrorism.

I don't have sympathy for terrorists, but if you wonder why there seems to be an endless supply of suicidal maniacs, it's pretty clear.

Ok Melon, it makes perfect sense now. these people have no choice but to kill people they never met....brutally....having them explode in the sky at 30,000 feet.

You certainly find it easy to hate and dehumanize a group of people you've never met too. It doesn't take a lot of effort.

If you don't like what I'm saying, then tell me. What is the root cause of Islamic terrorism?

Yes it's true that I don't like that these people are trying to blow us up. Yeah, I'm the bad guy because I have hatred for them. Their "buddies" killed some of my friends & neighbors in the WTC and severly destroyed my mothers building which was across the street from WTC while she was in it. BUT, I still won't blow up a plane filled w/ muslims.

We can agree to disagree and that's cool.

PrideofZootv - I'm flying in a few weeks as well and I'm not happy about it - as a matter of fact, I'm extremely nervous (Guess the terrorists already won). But, if reading this thread bothers you too much, perhaps you should not open this thread.

yes, let's not even bother to pause for a moment and consider why the world is as messed up as it is and why there are so many suicidal maniacs. it must be because they lack character. or maybe they're just evil. either way, i don't want to have to think about it. just kill them all. and you're not the only person on this board who lost people in the WTC, or had relatives and close family friends run out of the building just ahead of the cloud of dust.

but on a more serious note, this is sad, and disturbing, and things will probably be fine. i am encouraged that there appears to be such good international communication on these things, and a big to Scotland Yard.

truly, this is what allies do, they protect each other.

Scary. I just spent and hour last night reading through the Interference Sept. 11 thread, and now this...

I'm glad my dad is home today (he flies a lot to Western Europe and Israel).

Yes, it's getting ridiculous. I went to Heathrow this morning because calling the airline to get information about my flight was about as successful as flapping my arms and hope to get airborne myself. So I get home, turn on the telly, and see a bloke from CNN reporting on the ‘chaos and fear gripping air travellers’. Not the ones I met. They were mostly a bit impatient. I’ll admit that the poor clerk at the BA service desk who had the misfortune of brightening my day looked like he had been run over by a mid-sized chaos though.

The job of journalists is to report truthfully, but unfortunately the job of the media seems to be to earn money for the shareholders.

Lufthansa will probably try to book people through Frankfurt and Munich. And you can say a lot about Lufthansa but they’re very German so they’ll find a way.

people will start to understand that the media isn't really liberal, it merely promotes various corporate interests.

Oh sorry, I forgot that we’re supposed to keep that a secret. Well, I have to get back to plotting world domination...
