Terrorism is nothing but the offshoot of poverty, revenge, frustration, hegemony, and social injustice. Terrorism has never threatened the world the way it is threatening it today. It is a curse growing out of human stiffness and spreading everywhere. This is the gift of technological advancement, material accumulation, unfair multi or transnational spread.

To arrive where we are and in order to arrive there, we have left lots many things behind. T.S Eliot prophesied something thought-provoking that he wrote once:

'Where is the life we have lost liiving?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

An unnecessary flow of information in the control of corporate managers is the cause of spreading short-sightedness among the planners and the decision makers, especially at the political levels. As a result, technologically the so called well-informed global world is experiencing the menace of terrorism. The world of information is a smoky pub where sane thinking can not prevail. There is no doubt that sympathy still exists but empathy is hard to find. Concern for peace has become everybody's business but coming up with sincere effort to bring peace is nobody's responsibility. This world has become a J. Alfred Prufrock song:

'Let us go then, you and ... I
Till human voices wake us, and we drown'.
What is left in the hands of those who carry our strength? Again, the answer comes from within the same song:

'Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous--
Almost, at times, the Fool.'

Hence, the forces---poverty, revenge, frustration, hegemony, and social injustice---creating the storm of terrorism doesn't seem to stop so easily. An eagle sight alone can hunt it down.

I think every individual in this word wants - peace, self respect and enough money. Terrorism is not anyone's hobby that I understand and there might be reasons for these terrorists to opt for this path - lack of money, lack of education or probably brain washing. In either cases this does not give them any right to kill innocent individuals who have caused no apparent personal damage to these terrorists. Rob - USA 2010-05-13 01:16:37 134
