How should governments deal with terrorism ?

These are three key pieces of edvice for any government facing a terrorist threat.

1. Advice
In a terrorist threat the government should control the media and censor what the media show to the people. So that the people would not be scared and live in chaos.

On July 7th 2005 a bombing occurred in London, The british government restricted what photos the media released to the people. There were no photos of dead bodies. This is because the government does not want people to worry about the bombing as much. If the media showed limbless bodies people would be scared and horrified. This is an example of censorship being used to not cause panic among the people.

2. Advice
If the government uses harsh methods towards captured terrorists and then the terrorists would think twice before they would do a attack.

In 1605 after Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the parlament he was captured and killed in a very brutal way. This was done to set an example for other terrorists like Guy Fawkes.

3. Advice
If the terrorist demands are accpetable a government could listen to what their saying and try come to some good solution so everybody would be happy.

Nelson Mandela is a good example because he was fighting for black peoples rights even though the government did not listen to him at first because they thought that black people should be a lower race of people but after a while there was a lot of strikes going on and the government started thinking about releasing Nelson Mandela and negotiating with him, the results of these negotiation led to the abolition of apartheid in South Africa

If a man killes somebody by a bombing he is a terrorist and for killing you should be sent straight to jail for the rest of the convicts life without questioning. So I think if every terrorist would be sent to jail for the rest of his life then there would be less terrorist in the world...
