Never-ending terrorism

The right kind of words along with action would eventually trump fear

Never-ending terrorism

Sad for anybody to die before their time, but life is a gamble just being alive.

Terror of any kind is frightening with the unknown where and when even more so.

Before and since America’s 9/11, Paris, Manchester, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Africa — there is a list of terror far too long for me to remember.

Eliminating the likes of Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein who have been retired to the chain of underground or below the sea condos does nothing as they are quickly replaced. Each time there is a terrorist attack words appear from the lips of experts such as, we have to find a solution so this kind of thing will never happen again.

Well, guess what I believe? The right kind of words along with action would eventually trump fear.

Flexing muscles, threatening and having the most powerful weapons on earth cannot and will not stop attacks as terrorism is a proven fact and here to stay.

There has never been peace on earth as far as I know and living in today’s world is a challenge in many countries with the thought they may be blown off the map today.

Terrorists appear to be available for a dime a dozen with a never ending supply.

I don’t think the supply of death, like drugs, will ever run out — that is till the world stops turning.

Somebody once said you reap what you sow, so I suggest to you that as you sow, think of the terror and death you commit before you throw stones.

Do you really think it’s right for you and not expect a black eye or worse? Talk maybe considered cheap but better to talk the problems out than get nuked a no-win situation in my view as a former child of war.

When the problems at home can’t get solved, why is a coalition of the so-called free creating their very own killing fields abroad? Please tell me why, as absolutely nothing has changed for the better ?
