Given that the Manchester terrorist was a product of the interventions in Libya and Syria, it’s time to have an adult discussion about what it will take to stop terrorism.

10 Ways to Reduce Terrorism

There are 10 basic principles that serious, mature people need to discuss if we want to stop terrorism …

I. Stop Overthrowing the Moderates and Arming Crazies…

II. Stop Supporting the Dictators Who Fund Terrorists…

III. Stop Bombing and Invading When a Negotiated Settlement Is Offered…

IV. Prioritize Stopping Terrorists Over Stopping the “Shia Crescent”…

V. Stop Imperial Conquests for Arab Oil…

VI. Stop Drone Assassinations of Innocent Civilians…

VII. Stop Torture…

VIII. Stop Mass Surveillance…

IX. Stop Covering Up 9/11…

X. Stop Doing It Ourselves…

Wikipedia notes:

Chomsky and Herman observed that terror was concentrated in the U.S. sphere of influence in the Third World, and documented terror carried out by U.S. client states in Latin America. They observed that of ten Latin American countries that had death squads, all were U.S. client states.

They concluded that the global rise in state terror was a result of U.S. foreign policy.
