Paris attacks. What now?

A friend of mine send me this article.


It states we should stop doing what hasn't been working for fourteen years and find other ways to stop terrorist attacks. Evidently: fighting violence with even more violence only leads to more violence. Doh! Strange thing also is that people are willing to give up all of their freedoms to prevent themselves being overrun by people who want to take away their freedoms.This double standard inspired me to create this 'lolcat':

'Daddy, why is there a fence around our town?' 
-'To protect us from people who want to lock us up, son.'

It's a very clear message. And a verifiable truth: more wars have stopped after peace talks than after more bombings so maybe those in powere should stop throwing bombs and start listening. All those warlords in Syria want power, money and acknowkledgment. Why not just give that to them? Make them all Pasha of their own little piece of land, the oil- and water rights that go with it. And a medal 'for bravoury'.

At least that's a whole lot cheaper and less destructive than bombing innocent civilians, hoping one of them was a member of IS or Al-Qaida.

It's been asked before: War, what it is it's good for?
