Terrorism is illogical and needs education to combat it #occupy

It’s obvious that terrorists, or rather suicide bombers, must be mentally deficient in some way.

They may be emotionally disturbed, or they may just be simple minded. They are definitely gullible and incapable of seeing the flawed logic in what they do.
But what excuse have their controllers for these asinine acts.
To call them terrorists is a mistake.
OK! Any explosion will cause terror but it is a terror of the moment. It’s not a terror that drives people to change their ways of life, or their belief’s.
If a persistent nightly bombing campaign, by the Luftwaffe could not cause the hoped for capitulation of The British people’s, how can any reasoning person expect a population, whose ability to affect Government policy is limited to a 5 yearly choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee, be expected to overthrow their Government and pull their troops out of Muslim lands.

They certainly couldn’t be expected to succumb to the charms of Islam and to, then, order the immediate imposition of Sharia Law and the annihilation of Israel.
Consider The U.S. Gov’t’s logic.

Who would argue with their policy of attacking the head of the beast. Bin Laden and his replacements have been eliminated, as each has come to the fore (reminiscent of “Sergeant Yorke”).
Not one of these Al Quaeda leaders have seen the relevance of this policy to their own activities.
The leader’s are the people, who need to be targeted, if you choose to bring about policy change, through terrorism.
Generals feel no terror, when a shell lands in a trench, 2 miles away and, in fact, are only too willing to execute the PBI’s who are so terrorised and attempt to flee.
One is left wondering about the nature of such terrorist leaders. It is difficult to believe that they are all so bereft of Intelligence as to think that their methods will ever achieve success.
Is it simply that they enjoy the thought of having control of other’s?
Bearing in mind the lifestyle, which Bin Laden was enjoying, when he was “taken out”, it can’t be worldly pleasures, which they seek.
Can it be religious fervour?
Even though almost every religion is based on Brotherly love, most have been perverted, at some time, to serve the purposes of Sociopath’s and Megalomaniac’s.
I know that we have had individuals, who have perverted the teachings of the Christian faith e.g. the torturer’s of The Spanish Inquisition and I’m sure that other religion’s have suffered similarly.
In the case of Christianity, such acts occured mainly in the Middle Ages and apart from paedophile priests, few Christian’s would, Today, accept religion as a basis for any inhumanity.
My thoughts are that this change in Christian people’s has been brought about through Education and improved expectations of living standards.
My generation, living in Christian countries, have an awareness of the World and an ability to question our “betters”.
It seems to me that there are people, in positions of power, who would like to regress this.
My hope is that the spirit that has given rise to the Occupy movement, is evidence that this will fail and, on the contrary, Globalisation will allow on-line education to sharpen the critical faculties of the masses not only in the Muslim World but wherever petty priests exploit the poor and ignorant.
Instead of sending bombs to Afghanistan, we should broaden the access to the Internet and provide the means to increase the wealth and education of “peasant” people.
If you are well fed and well informed, you are less likely to don a suicide vest.
