Terror: three things

My first book was about terrorism.  What I learned:

  1. Don’t give what them what they most want 
  2. Don’t turn more people into terrorists
  3. Don’t hesitate to find terrorists and terminate them

Donald Trump always does one and two. He doesn’t ever do three. 


  1. Puzzled says:

    And here I thought he always did three, and never did one and two.

  2. doconnor says:

    He does number 2 all the time with his anti-muslim statements and actions.

    There is every reason the believe he will do number 1 because the terrorist want him to react out of fear, anger and machismo.

  3. Charlie says:

    1. What is it they want most?
    2. What drives these people to terrorism?
    3. Easier said than done, perhaps?

    We’ve long passed a point of crisis. This is utter pandemonium and I genuinely believe that we’re failing to address the simplest of questions. The consistency by which events like these transpire appear to indicate that there is a disconnect between intention and action when dealing with the catalyst (whatever that may be) to terrorism in western nations.

  4. Robert Frindt says:

    Ariana Grande’s memorial concert for Manchester is today.

    The pace of attacks is now faster than the memorials can be organized.

  5. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    One expert on CNN said that 16 to 18 terrorist plots had been foiled recently in the UK.

    1. Sow fear and terror.

    2. Putting most peace-loving Muslims in a widely inaccurate category of terrorist generalizations.

    3. More often than not that’s the end result. But Muslim Arabic-speaking CIA operatives at Gitmo were far more successful than waterboarding. Relationships between captive and captor are key.
