What?
Do you mean can a single serious threat be stopped?
Only if the government wants it to be stopped, for their own agenda, like say getting
their party back in office. If they want more police powers, which they do,
then they will let it happen, again.

Terrorism will never be stopped, because they label any act of violence for political change to be terrorism. Which means, ironically, the Iraq war itself is terrorism, but they prefer to call it
"Shock and Awe" and "Liberation" and "promoting democracy".

But if you were to promote demcracy with bombs, what would they call you?

If you want to know if terrorism can be defeated just look at the IRA.

Negotiations, a few small concessions and suddenly no more bombs.
The brief flare up by die hard republicans ended and now the IRA and chums are just another set of petty gangs.

Proof that terrorists can be stopped, even when they can recieve unlimited funding from the USA.

The IRA is a good example, although the IRA still recruits and trains,

As I see it and im no expert, but if the US goverment left the middle-east, the terrorism would stop over there.

I believe that the United has already lost the war on terrorism.It was apparent when the first WTC attack happened in 1993.They had no defense against it then and they still didn't have it on 9/11.These terrorist's are patient and ruthless,they can wait another 10 years before they launch another major attack.You cannot defeat an enemy which has no base country or visible army,so in reality the US has nothing to attack.How can you defeat an enemy like that????

These terrorist do have a base country - the Middle East. We know where to find them, maybe not in precisly exact terms, but it's not as if they are ghost. The effort has to be made, and the fact is that left wingers would rather pamper these terrorist by giving them prayer time, cosher meals, and other such luxuries as they sit in prison cells in Gitmo.

Learn some geography. The Middle East is many countries, not one single country.
Terrorism is occuring in Spain, Greece, Indonesia and Eastern Europe.
If there base of operations is this magical kingdom of "Middle East" then they must
also have mastered the art of teleporation to bypass every kind of security to reach their targets.

Oh yeah, where is Osama and Zarqawi then? Don't know, do we, don't forget George Bush your neo-con sex idol doesn't "care where he is"

Kosher is a jewish thing, are you saying the terrorists are Israeli's and not Afghani's?
Don't forget 156 prisoners have been released from Gitmo, they were obviously, by the majority innocent of any crime, but imprisoned and tortured none the less.

The idiots forget that America itself was founded on "Terrorism". Boston Tea Party would be concidered a terrorist revolt today. George Washington's Delaware assault would be called an
insurgent attack today. American Unions were founded and fought against with terrorist bombings and mercenary attacks against strikers. The American actions against the native people's of every land they encountered was basically terrorism: Miltiary violence for politcal change.
The drug war against American citizens is terrorism, unless you think masked men with automatic weapons being held to the heads of women and children is some form of democracy.

I think it could be minimized, if the people in power actually wanted to stop it.

But why would they?

Terrorism is the best thing that ever happened to them, they can invade countries at will, pass laws that allow them to harass and arrest political enemies, and throw billions at the defense contractors that paid their way into office, all in the name of "fighting terrorism."

They must have learned it from Goku during the 4th season. Sneaky bastards.

What exactly constitutes as major terrorism? Obviously, we are speaking of instances of occurances that are tatamount to 9/11, correct? I'm afraid the complexity of this certain situation is far beyond the publics eye and has been spurious since then. To prevent such situations would, personaly speaking, require, quite simply and frankly, someone a bit more astute, capable, and susceptible to the status quo democracy which has touted him/her; one who holds above all the principles of universality and collectivism, not to sound perfunctory to socioalist ideals, however, a democracy entails the collective of the society and those elected must represent them wholly, not thier own accord.

A good leader could have prevented such instances, it's a pity that a child was thrown into the pit.

Luxifero.

Terror is the tactic of an enemy, and no sane person would declare war on tactics!

Then again, I don't think we have a sane government....

We cannot defeat terrorism, because they do not have a government or a country. They are spread around, which makes them almost impossible to attack w\o killing innocent people.

Terrorism, is terrorizing people to get what you want.
Therefore, for terrorism to end, it would include getting rid of the current us administration.
so, no.

Unless all sides come to their senses terorism will never stop. It has been going on for thousands of years.
The primary target is Israel. It does not matter what it looks like or what you think. Jews are the target.
In 1991 President Bush said that the US would assume the protection of israel.
That is like the cat telling the mouse, "we are buddies". Come on over to my house for dinner.
Bush is a born again Christian. He acxcepts money from Rome. Rome is out to kill as maby Jews as possible. The Pope uses the NAZI forces that still exist to finish the Final Solution.
Israel has a major problem and they know it.
Death camps did not eliminate the Jews or get them to praise Jesus. Israel is stronger now thatn ever before and they are nuclear armed.
The Popes position is that nukes worked in Japan. The Shinto's now celebrate Christmas.
If the NAZI pope has his way Israel will be down sized.
The Jews are in the way of the New World Order. That is the bottom line.
If a nuclear attact fails Bush will replace Hitler and get the blame for trying to kill Jews.

Once again, Legalizer, you get one of my WATS doodahs. Jeez, if this keeps happening people will talk


Anyway. Pulling out of the Middle East might go a long way to appease many terrorist organizations...if only it were that simple; the US/allies/West is simply too entrenched to pull out - financially, militarily and politically. If, for example, the US pulled support of Israel...whilst that would be great news to many Palestinians, it might spell complete destruction (from other pro-Palestine nations; of which there are more than a few) to the Israelis.

Perhaps a lot could be done if the US would actually penalize Saudi Arabia for financing and supporting certain terrorist groups; not only is turning a blind eye destructive in terms of obtaining support for US-initiated military action, it is perhaps irrevokably damaging US diplomatic relations around the world in other matters. Moves in the right direction have been applauded, but it seems such progression is simply "too little, too late".

Turning a blind eye to your friends isn't going to appease your enemies if they're both guilty of the same crimes.

IF the US could find an alternative fuel source (the up and comming hydro-cell or all mythical cold fussion) we would have no reason to pussy-foot around MidEast countries or be there in the first place. So, lets put our brains together and find this alternative source. Even then, the terrorist would still attack us for not buying their oil.

Simply put, finding alternative energies is the solution to terrorism.
