Democracy ends terrorism?

The Bush administration and its various proxies have been arguing this point for years though increasing evidence suggests otherwise.

I'm reminded of a comment by Noam Chomsky:

"Everyone's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it."

I argued that liberal secularism was the answer to terrorism. It is more powerful when it comes from within, however, witness Indonesia vs iraq.

Thanks, interesting article.
The idea that exporting democracy - and US 'democracy' is synonymous with cronyism - is what the rest of the world wants, is why Iraq happened and why it's a disaster.

I think COndolezza Rice set a new benchmark for Orwellian statements this week when she said peace in the Middle East could only be guaranteed through war. And to thnk that woman has a doctorate!!

Thanks for your insight dreamboat. Although the chances of you having ever experienced something like terrorism is nil, I commend you for your arm-chair journalism.
