The "War on Terror" can't be won with war.

Extremism is a social phenomenon which war exacerbates. Jesus understood this. Conservatives don't.

Here is a truth that few conservatives seem to understand:

1) Hopeless social conditions breed extremism.
2) Extremism breeds terrorism.
3) Wars create hopeless social conditions and, thus, terrorism.

People who understand this are not surprised by the news that terrorism is up by nearly 30% in the last year, alone.
Report says terror attacks up sharply

WASHINGTON - Terrorist attacks worldwide shot up more than 25 percent last year, killing 40 percent more people than in 2005, particularly in
Iraq where extremists used chemical weapons and suicide bombers to target crowds, the State Department said Monday.

In its annual global survey of terrorism, the department said 14,338 attacks took place in 2006, mainly in Iraq and Afghanistan, 3,185 more than in 2005 representing a 28.5 percent increase.

Jesus seemed to understand that mercy and kindness is the really "enemy" of evil doers:
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."

This radical principle of Jesus is spot-on applicable to the so-called "war on terror." How do you fight an enemy when killing one breeds six more? The answer, of course, is you stop killing them and start obeying Christ's teaching about you enemy.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
