I appreciate your logic but there are some critical issues you're missing.
These are members of our own species we're talking about. Their barbarism does warrant their control but resorting to force against our own kind is
a fools path. To the degree we try to destroy identity, rather than understand it, this problem will persist.
Most people fail to recognize the basic problem: the insanity in the human mind that causes a species to attack itself. Since no effect exists
without a cause we should be addressing looking to understand the effect in order to perceive the cause. That is the only long-term solution.
In the short-term we do need to control terrorism for our own safety, but we must understand that terrorist is an identity, not a person. A person
isn't born a terrorist, he becomes
a terrorist. Incidentally, members of our species are now becoming terrorists because we're controlling
terrorism through force; talk about a vicious cycle!
I will spare the technical explanations of why this is so, but I will close my comment with this: humanity must adopt a much greater level of ethics
if it is to survive this century. You can bet on that.
