Fight Terror With Krispy Kreme
The best solution we have to fight terror is to civilize the rest of the world. The best way we can do that is to let our jobs go overseas to other more qualified and cheaper countries. Hey, do you want to fight terror or not? Or did you think we could just send off our soldiers and stamp it out. That just puts on a lid on it - it won't go away. In fact it will come back even worse.
So Americanize other country's economies. Have people in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria driving in Mercedes', shopping at L.L. Bean, stopping in at a Krispy Kreme for doughnuts and run next door to the Starbucks for mocha latte decaf. If you award these products to a population, they will think twice before boarding a plane to crash it into a skyscraper or strap crude explosives to their chest.
These people are dying for their belief, be it religion or brainwash. Capitalism removes our dependence on faith by making us more materialistic. There will still be a faith, people who think it is proper to keep religion in their lives so it won't be completely gone. But we need to upgrade third-world countries to this century to stop terrorists. It's as simple as that.
Sure there will always be someone who wants to see America's demise. There will still be cave dwellers who have nothing to live for and offer their life in sacrifice to their beliefs. But most of their support will be removed with the civilization of their area. In the United States we have militias and cults that would like nothing better than to see the American government removed. But guess what? No one is listening to them bacause we have to get our kids to soccer practice and rush home to TiVo Survivor.
