What do you think of terrorism?
Is it a viable strategy for trying to attain what you want? If we leave the rest of the world in chaotic poverty, do we not deserve, and should we not suspect, that poor nations will strike out against us whether we think it is 'legal' or not?

I think Osama Bin Laden is a man of great strength to stand up for what 1/2 the world's population wants and strikes out at the beast. It is somewhat metaphorically related to the story of David and Goliath. It also appears that the US military has met their match in Afghanistan and Iraq - how many deaths are they at now?! Do they not realize that the deaths in the middle east are meaningless to them and even welcome as they are serving their religion?

Kudos to the insurgents who dont want bush controlling their country as poorly as he controls america, and call them cowards, but whatever works.

I think this round of terrorism will take the same path that history has provided. It is never a way to 'get what you want'!

Fewer chronologically than any war in American history.

I assume that Perilous is either some young kid trolling or some fanatic Muslim living up in Canada, enjoying the benefits of living in a democracy.

Imagine that you were marginalized and ignored while you lived in desolate poverty. Knowing that there was no way to restore your situation with some other country hogging all the wealth you come across capabilities to strike them with terror. Would you do it, or would you say "well, the US and Europe thinks terrorism is against international law so im going to sit here and rot some more?"

First fallacy is in 'hogging all the wealth' The US gives more than most countries earn/produce. The problem in most of those cases is that THEIR government does not want it's people to receive. (look up Somalia) In the case of being marginalized...how is it that the US is doing that? Are we directly responsible for people not in this country? If so, how and why. Then to what extent. Finally, terrorism as a response to being poor is at best laughable. You might want to research the amount of moneys used by these terrorists...weapons and explosives on the black market do not come cheap -- perhaps you can also review the 9/11 hijackers and their lifestyle prior to the attack.

There are millions of people living in poverty who don't kill other people living in poverty (many of your beloved Bin Laden's attacks are on the poor in Iraq! ) Beyond that, most of the terrorists come from the Middle East---a place that has been milking the world economies dry via oil exports for years. If you want to help your brother Muslims, you people should be striking out at your real oppressors--the petty tyrants who take in billions of dollars a year while their subjects remain impovershed.

Chicon, we can agree---this is a sick human being. I would love to get him in a room for about ten minutes so that I can knock some sense into him, although it appears as if he has swallowed the Kool Aid and is beyond redemption.

He claims to be Canadian? Doesn't sound like something a Canadian would say much less believe.

This is where we can use a server sided script to obtain the IP address which will then allow us to learn at the very least, the regional location.

This person, as typical, is completely ignorant as to the root causes of terrorism having bought into the leftist desire to promote socialism throughout the world. If abject poverty were the driving force, Africa would be the largest terrorist nation on earth. In fact, terrorism of the kind Bin Laden carries on requires great wealth, which he possesses. Al Queda is a well financed organization. In fact, contrary to what this knucklehead is professing, we'd have nothing to worry about from terrorists if they were actually poor.

Exactly-----all the more reason to stop terrorism in Iraq, from getting at the oil wealth.

[1] The US has what... 2/3 of the wealth and power in the world. They can give a few million out to some countries and be giving more than the countries produce - you are trying to skew statistics here. The way i see it is that the terrorists are reaching into the US and taking back some of the power for their country. Why should the US be the 'powerhouse' of the world? Are Americans any 'better' of humans than the rest of the world?


[2] I believe we are responsible as we do not really earn our wealth - we are lucky to be born into it. As for being responsible - this is exactly my point. Terrorism occurs when we are not responsible. I say Kudos to them not for killing masses of people, which is wrong, but because they are standing up against our infliction. Believe me, i dont think terrorism is right, but it is what we essentially force people into doing.

[3] Good point here. Ive never used the black market but i bet you are right.

If you think terrorism is ok, or clever, or enterprising, or heroic, then there is no nice way to tell you that that you are stupid
