The problem of terrorism
According to the FBI, "Terrorism is the international act of trying to bring harm to innocent people."
Now there are many mad men in this world who give their lives for another one possessed by his ideologies.
Why do ordinary men become terrorists? Young men suffering from personal depression, unemployment, family problems are attracted to terrorism.
The leader provides them with money and food and lures them into his ideology.
Why are they terrorists? Or what is their motto?
Some just want to spread their religion, some fight civil war in their country, a few want a coup in their country.
They are a threat to us as they are merciless and kill innocent citizens to prove their power and brutality.
They are a threat to advanced countries as they destroy their symbols of power and authority by ruthless suicide bombing
Now they are stealing military document and posing a threat to us. They may develop chemical and biological weapons, in which case it may start a Third World War.
These men may destroy the signs of progress. This may set the country back in terms of development.
Yet all hardcore terrorists demand that they should be treated with sympathy if caught, but they massacre innocent people without mercy. They deserve no pity.
