I found this to be an interesting article on why there are terrorists. Can a terrorist be cured. The answer is "yes." Many have been. People become terrorists, not just because of religion, although that plays a big role, but they also become terrorists when they see a friend killed by a real or perceived enemy. Therefore, the wars that America constantly wages, continuously creates terrorists.
When George Bush declared war on Iraq, his approval ratings soared to about 85%. This tells one about the American mind-- They love war. Americans vote for "leaders" who get tough on crime--by putting in prison millions of people, the majority of whom did nothing more than some some marijuana.They have had 2.3 million Americans behind bars. They spend far more for prisons than they do on education. Americans like that. And it's a majority of voting Americans that keep war hawks in office.
Like Uganda, America is a sick society.
