The Solution for Terrorism
Terrorism, which has been around for as long as people can remember has been on the rise for the past ten years. Terrorists use bombings, kidnappings, hijackings, murders as a way to achieve a political goal such as the release of so called “political prisoners”. These radicals do not just target the United States, but they focus on all parts of the world, in every way, shape and form.

There are many different types of terrorism, for many different purposes. The primary reason for terrorist attacks is to force a change in their nation’s government or the country’s government they are attacking. If terrorists are not satisfied with their government’s political positions, they may end up taking the matters into their own hands. Another reason for terrorist attacks are because of hate towards a race, nationality, or religion. For example, in 1972 the Palestinian Liberation Organization invaded Israeli dorms in the Munich Olympics, and held the Israeli athletes’ hostage until Israel agreed to release Palestinian terrorists that were captured in Israel. When Israel refused to comply with the terrorists’ demands, the PLO blew up two helicopters which held the Israeli athletes, killing the whole team. This was one of the many cruel and cowardly types of terrorism. In recent years, terrorism seems to be at a new high and attacks are more violent than in the past. With terrorism being so secretive and having no forewarning, it has been a real problem to deal with. The governments of many countries have tried to stop these cowardly acts, however they just seem to continually escalate over time. I have a few ideas that might work.

Since there are no fool-proof ways to predict when a terrorist will strike next, there can really be no complete answer to this problem. Even though there is no way to totally eliminate terrorism, my solutions may still prove valid and help...
