different and clever ways to beat Terror

Reader comment on item: Must Counterinsurgency Wars Fail?

Submitted by Radovan (Australia), Sep 14, 2008 at 23:13

I agree we cannot win using hot solutions. This is more for police than military. We would have much better chance economically - and less blood of innocent peoples. If we spend the same amount we pay for military actions on research and development of our energy needs from anything else that oil (this has to come to the end some day in any case), we will need no oil and all Arabs, communists and radicals who are lucky to have such resources for blackmailing us, will have no obscene amount of monies to pay for their attempts to destroy our way of life (for religious, envy or other reasons) . In a few years without their oils, they would go hungry, can eat sand and splash it down with oil. Then and only then, we would make business with them on equal terms and would assist them in their need, if they so deserve. Terrorism would die off within a few years, running our of money for bullets, kalashikovs and necessary support .
