Terrorism: Just a reimnder

In the wake of the London killings, there has been considerable mention of IRA terrorism but hardly any of how that violence ended, namely by finding a peaceful solution to the problem.

The same could be true in the Mid East  but no major politician or major media have proposed any non-military solutions despite the fact that the Iraq and Afghanistan battles have been the longest failed wars in American history.

Meanwhile, during the Afghan war we have killed some 26,000 civilians while just between 2014 and 2017 American-led airstrikes have killed some 3100 civilians in Iraq and Syria.Not a bad way to encourage terrorism in the west.

The best way to end domestic terrorism is to find a peaceful solution to the Mid East situation.
