I honestly believe that the terrorists have the power and ability to carry out attrocities should they want to. Afganistan and Iraq are countries in which Nato/coalition have little chance of achieving a lasting peace for if one terrorist is killed two more will replace him or her. 9/11 proved that however sophisticated the security services are in seeking information it is a fact that they continue to make errors through inadequate communication. My concern is that sometime in the future terrorists will poison our drinking water and the effect could be catastrophic. In the end we will need to speak to the terrorists even though their hatred of the West can never be fully explained. What do these terrorists really want, is it the eventual destruction of the world as we know it.
