From Terrorism to Nation Building

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Dec 6, 2006 at 00:19

Dr Pipes,

If we travel in time to a world where all Muslim states are democratic like Latin America for example, I am sure that there will be no terrorism because there will be renewable hope., Left and Right politics, and maybe more social justice. But, let us be realistic. Is it in the best interest of the USA to get rid of Sabah and Al Saud family and replace it with Chavez and Morales!

I have noticed that the USA economy needed and may still need terrorism somewhere in the world. The Europeans need no economic giants in North Africa and no Chavez like democracies of the poor in North Africa. The bottom like, there must be a price for a better world.

Your article is very thoughtful and initiates the concerned states to the concept of incentives, risk management and investment. I just enjoyed doing a business analysis to your article especially as the concerned states are profit based market economies.

The world will become better only when the capital becomes friendly, and when the centre of all issues will be the person not the profit.
