There needs to be a better process of dealing with terrorists. By applying the same rules and laws, that the rest of society abides by, to these
people we not only validate them as members of society we devalue the entire process. Terrorists should be viewed as nothing short of a disease. You
eradicate a disease by killing it, and then you remove as many sources of sustainence to the disease so it cannot return.
To get rid of the plague we learned to clean up the places where we lived, we improved sewage and realised that we needed to remove garbage quickly so
the rats that carried the plague did not have a place to breed and multiple (and feed off of). You remove the sources of sustainance (money/arms) from
terrorists (a fine example is Saudi Arabia) and you cut off the disease before it can grow and multiply.
Society as a whole, or even in a smaller sense, is not lessened by killing terrorists - it's not "lowering ourselves to their level" it's simply
disease management. Wipe them all out, no questions, trials, etc. You get caught in the act of commiting a terrorist act, you get shot. You get caught
in the act of training for a terrorist act, you get shot. You get caught supplying arms or monies to fund a terrorist act or organization, you get
shot. Pretty simple.
I realise it's not as simple as that (developed nations also have to improve living conditions in the rest of the world so there are no longer places
where this disease [terrorism] can grow roots and multiply), but wasting as many of these sick bastards as possible is a darn good start.
