I didn't state that religion is the disease. I stated the region is the disease. This means that their economic status, oppressions, inability to voice political oppositions healthily, and lack of education is all a part of this disease. All of this is themed throughout the Middle Eastern Arab world and this is why members of Al-Queda come from all over it. What is it that you state I have wrong? I will add in that the brittle concrete Middle Eastern Arab Islam does facilitate some of this madness.
And we have not increased terrorism at all. This was always a false comfort for critics and safe minded intel theorists. You stated it yourself..."There is nothing you can do with the military that will ever change the mindset of the terrorist." All of this already existed. Shake up a can of soda for decades. Does merely popping the top create the inevitable explosion? All those mindless Sunni tribal robots that traveled from all over to kill the Shia in Iraq and to disrupt attempts to create democracy already existed. Notice how it subsided after enough of them were killed off and Iraqis began to succeed? Notice how wrecked Al-Queda has been throughout the world? Do you honestly think that radicals in Europe don't exist as they merely await an excuse to be what they want to be? With our enemies screaming that our culture infringing upon their's is an assault upon Islam, I don't see how you think that we don't have a ready made enemy already.
The military's role is to kill the terrorist and to create opportunity in this region so that terrorists aren't so easily made. This has always been generational. We are not alone. Along with us are NGOs. In thirty years, people will reflect on the very obvious theme that has been created.
