There is a lot of evidence of this, if you would like the evidence in his defense, i would be more than happy to offer it. anyway, he is on death row right now, and there are HUGE protests against ONE MAN dieing. ONE. even though most people dont support the black panthers, i personally dont, they care about this single, injustice. It only takes one spark to ignite a forest fire.
You have a point.
But yet no solution worth mentioning.
I still think we can destroy them.
Destroy their funds
Destroy their safe harbors
Terrorism has been defeated and shut down before.
See the thing is though, terrorists are quite a bit different than the black panthers or any other group BECAUSE they are fueled by RELIGIOUS hatred, not by patriotism or injustices.
Terrorists are religious extremists that want the death of all infidels.
They are not patriots nor do they think of themselves as such
They are not freedom fighters nor do they think of themselves as such.
They think of themselves as warriors of Islam, and THATS what makes them different.
Make it so terrorism is HATED globaly especialy in the middle east. Get their goverments to condem it.
You don't see very many Nazis now adays because they have been CONDEMED globaly. Hell germany even made it illegal to draw swastikas or yell hail hitler.
The ONLY way I think to defeat them is to wipe their perverted religion off the planet and get other Muslims to help (just like we are doing).
They will eventually be destroyed or powerless just like Nazis are today.
You know I can also use Nazis as an example of how they can be defeated.
You do know that the Nazis and Japanese were both reduced to suicide bombing after we won.
The war actually went on a few years after it was over because little pockets of loyalists were hiding. Same things with terrorists.
Same thing with the Saddam loyalists.
