Yes, It surely is
Maybe / Sort of / In some ways
No / Not applicable
And this is like grinding your head against a wall because these patterns are only decipherable or 'perceivable' at a higher state of consciousness. They can be encoded and interpreted and divined but this is merely a result of the opacity of wordly thinking. Let us empty our mind of all thoughts...
Until there is a mass awakening to the root cause of fanaticism that grows out of CULTS such as Islam there will be no peace ever.
You can claim the fault lies only with the west because of interfering in Islamic Countries but then you be missing the bigger picture that clearly shows there are more Terrorist attacks carried out in So-called Islamic Countries than anywhere and who exactly are the ones being killed nearly every day?
It hurt me as a Christian to say this but it's as true today as it has been throughout time, that there would be a lot less wars and killing world wide if all religion were banned, PERIOD, end of story.
There are over 20 religions that all claim to have the same GOLDEN RULE.
But I know of no Nation on Earth that practices this RULE RELIGIOUSLY.
If all people could follow this one simple rule can you imagine how much better everything because we could all stop wasting our resources on military tools.
Poverty could end almost over night, along with hunger, medical research could make great strides forward, all by just practicing.
what TEN little words say to us.
DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU HAVE OTHERS DO UNTO YOU
These are truly words to live by.

?Democratic is not a noun it's an adjective Democrat is a noun. So we have a Democrat Party that is democratic, and it's people who claim to be educated that say it most and we hear it daily on TV and Radio, even the great and wonderful new Messiah of the Democrat party Obama says it wrong every day.
Does anyone around believe that democratic initiatives can spur anti-terror results? This was a major part of Bush's and now Obama's anti-terror strategy. I feel such efforts are fitting a square opeg in a round hole as our model of democracy doesnt culturally fit many nations just as neo-liberalism or the washington consensus fails many states.
There's nothing pro or anti democratic about terrorism. Democracy only refers to the ideals of representative government. The two are entirely unrelated.
However, I assume the notion is that democracy will produce stability and wealth, which would, in turn reduce terrorist action. The first premise is not necessarily true, though. A democratic government, especially one forced on people as we are attempting to do in the Middle East, has little to do with the attitudes and customs of a people. First comes peace and prosperity, then comes democracy, not the other way around.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
I think all forms of govt. are compatible with terrorism. It's utility depends on the given circumstances.
