    Why don't you let them do at their homes what they want?. The really important question is why the western world is angaged in the middle east since the last 30 years.
    I agree - we should get the **** out of there and let them crumble; however, my point is that you can't use Western presence, interference - whatever you want to call it - in the Middle-East, as an excuse for Islamic terrorist.

    Terrorism, just like many other things, needs a power base - they need support in both money and supplies. If you take away their power base they become much less dangerous.
    With the case of modern terrorists this essentially means destroying illegal poppy fields used to create opiates and giving the local populace the courage and means to defend themselves.
    No not really. Many suicide bombings are carried out by people who have no real strong links to the hub of Al Qaeda but are inspired by such actions e.g. 9/11 and choose to make their own statement with home made explosives strapped to them. If you stubbed out Al Qaeda tomorrow, you'd still get self-styled terrorists aiming to make a point.

    About the "illegal" poppy fields, they were outlawed in Afghanistan by the Taliban and as a result the global heroin trade was on the verge of collapse. Since the invasion in 2001, the poppy industry has grown as a result of reduced Taliban influence in the region. It doesn't have a role in financing these groups.

    Edward de Bono advised a Foreign Office committee that we should send marmite out to the Middle East to ameliorate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, since unleavened bread is eaten widely in the region, and the consumption of such bread is correlated with low zinc levels, which in turn causes increased aggression. Marmite, of course, contains zinc.

    get the **** out of the middle east....get isreal to stop pissing people off, thus stopping the huge support for many groups...

    it will all crumble, fall, rebuild etc.....when everything is stable again...leave it, trade etc can happen...but don't send it troops....the cultures etc. are so different, that western values will never ever work in the middle east in terms of govt. etc

    Terrorism will always exist, in all of us, just on different scales.

    Many of us will have, at some point in our lives, inflicted terror on somebody, no matter how small.

    Terrorism on a much larger scale involves the killing of many people for political, social, 'religious' or other reasons.

    As long as humans exist so will terrorism.
