Complexity Digest 2003.39 - 19.02
Excerpts: If we are to fight terrorism effectively, and avoid mistakes in doing so, we need more debate, not less, regarding possible policy responses.(...)
While terrorism is an evil with which there can be no compromise, we must use our heads, not our hearts, in deciding our response. (...)
We also delude ourselves if we think that military force alone can defeat terrorism. It may sometimes be necessary to use force to counter terrorist groups. But we need to do much more than that if terrorism is to be stopped.
