Retaliating violently against terrorism only creates more victims, more martyrs, more sympathizers, more terrorists, and more acts of terrorism. Terrorists suffer the delusions of the Savior Syndrome and wish to die a Martyr's death for their cause. Retaliation - war in any violent form- only serves their cause more... The solution to stopping terrorism is not simple... it involves seeking real, rational dialogue with people who have long-standing historical grudges and grievances (if dialogue is done openly, honestly, rigorously and certain amends made on both/all sides, this can cause the terrorists to lose support and sympathizers. Disarm the arguement and the reasoning for terrorism becomes blatantly irrational.) Cut the base of popular support and the terrorist cause ceases to be a rallying point- it becomes absurd and futile. czHANg, peekin' up from readin' Sun Tzu's _Art of War_
