What the Terrorists Want

“But history and logic suggest that striking back the wrong way too often harms more of the innocent and only helps the terrorists get what they want,” writes Steve Weissman over at Truthout. While it is perhaps beyond the scope of his piece to address that question, his statement strongly suggests that we should not give the terrorists what they want.

Certainly if you ask terrorists what they want, you’ll get a variety of answers, but chief among them will definitely be an end to the occupation of their lands: Israel out of Palestine, the US and its lackeys out of Iraq, and so on.

But therein lies the rub. Occupiers are known for not wanting to give their occupied territories back. It simply isn’t on the agenda. So expect a lot more terrorist attacks, thanks in a large part to Bush, Blair, and their buddies.
