No Terrorism is not new it should have been dealt with years ago

Wars should have been delt with along time ago, along with disease. Things happen again, history repeats.

2. Terrorism is nowhere near as threatening as, say, drunk drivers (who kill six times more Americans than 9/11 every year).
Absolutely ridiculous analogy. Which drunk driver killed 3,000 Americans in one day?

I am gonna have to agree, you can't compare 1 day to a year.

3. Terrorism using weapons of mass destruction is extremely difficult and rare.
May be difficult and rare but the impact it would have would be massive and therefor can not be ignored just because it does not happen alot

Any WMD is bad terrorist or superpower.

4. Terrorists are rational.
Saying people who claim it is perfectly alright to kill everyone who is not muslim rational is not rational

Rational is a very broad thing, and changes with events and stimuli.

5. Terrorism usually arises out of defensive desperation.
HAHA can not even begin to go into how ignorant that statement is
Terrorism arises out of need to inflict fear as a form of warfare.

shalee wrote:
6. Suicide attacks are rational: cheap, effective against difficult targets and, well, terrorizing.
LOL the fact that the terrorists find it rational to strap a bomb to a human being so that they can kill more humans that do not agree with them is a real good argument for wiping them out.
Mass stockpiling weapons, murdering their own people, instigating revolution, killing people who don't agree with you... Been happening for hundreds of years.

7. Terrorism and Islam are not linked. Terror has been perpetrated in the name of most religions, as well as for secular causes.
Oh please spare me that garbage. Exactly what religion were the terrorists on 9/11 oh wait that's right they were islamic. USS cole? Islamic. World Trade center 1993? Islamic. I could go on all day. Why don't you name ANY Terrorist act to take place in the past 27 years that was not done by Islamic Terrorists that would be easier because it does not exist.

Religion is very important as it opens up a massive pool of manpower and fanatic blindness. Tell a man who struggles with live, that if he kills himself heaven awaits with utopia for ever, hes gonna have thoughts.

8. Democracy does not prevent terrorism.
No it doesn't but if you turn these countires into a democracy the attacks will be fewer and easier to deal with.


Democracies tend to be more stable, not always but having the people with more control does help.

9. Democratic civil rights do not impede prosecuting terrorists.
HUH??? Perhaps you could explian what you mean here...

???

10. Military action is usually not effective against terrorist groups.
Would absolutely be effective if our soldiers hands were not tied by the whiny left.. Kinda hard to fight one handed against an enemy that does not play by the rules.

Hardly any action is effective against terrorism, the more millitary you instigate the larger their recruiting pool gets.

shalee wrote:
11. Armies usually cause more terrorism in response.
GEEZ another typical leftist argument for why we should sit beck and do nothing LOL

It does, larger recruiting pool. Rally under the banner of invaders and opressors.

shalee wrote:
12. Addressing causes of terrorism is not surrender or appeasement to the terrorists themselves
Bull, did that for years and did us no good.[/i][/b]

This statement contradicts itself/

what other choice do we have? I agree it is not terribly effective but do we have a choice?


Yes in fact! a large military operation against terrorism is a waste of resources it like trying to swat flies with a sledgehammer. What I think would be a good strategy is using the CIA effectively (granted the communication of intelligence in the system itself needs to be updated) coupled with surgical strikes on confirmed targets in order to capture leadership and put them on trail. As well as infiltrating the cells in this country and other countries abroad by using undercover CIA agents as well as interpol and our allies respective intelligence agencies. Military units would be used but not in the way this administration used it.

but what do I know?
