so, and please correct me if I'm mistaken, but to stop a terrorist, shooting isn't a solution but perhaps we should talk to him/her?

If you consider a person wearing a belt filled with explosives a good conversation partner I won't stop you, but my own desire for preservation would make me use the gun and shoot before he/she explodes within any area I might be in.

This I would consider common sense. It is true english police became paranoid at some point due to terrorist actions. I for one can't blame them, I deplore the death of a presumed innocent. But I would probably make the same mistake under the stress and fear they were under.

an other part of common sense: Violence always gives more violence till one of the two sides are completelly dead. feel free to correct me on that as well.

So those who feel injustly attacked will act. while an army bombs a country it does not discriminate but just uses the easy way to kill and the others are collateral damage. When a terrorist explodes or kills civilians. What criminals did he kill or attempt to kill? All he did was inflict fear and hate for people towards him/her.

but it's true sending terrorists to military bases is dificult as they are better protected.

So let's kill some innocents as that is easier? ...

but it's easier to claim Amerika and it's habitants the enemy, the people who didn't give there go for the attack. The president and his staff did those. For that reason alone I call terrorists bandits who claim there actions are justified by actions commited by their people and them selves. while doing even worse to others then what was done to them.

The twin towers wasn't a military base! It being a target is in my opinion a lot worse and low then what ever the so called "Western world" did. It was aimed at people who didn't decide the military policy.

Submitting....
