Central Motive for anti-American Terrorism, Suicide Terrorism, and Catastrophic Terrorism
WARNING: "Greater the risk of the next 9/11, whether that is a suicide attack, a nuclear attack, or a biological attack."Dying to Win : The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism
by Robert Pape
The July 18, 2005 Issue of The American Conservative has an interview with Robert Pape " a conversation with the man who knows more about suicide terrorists than any other American." "The Logic of Suicide Terrorism It’s the occupation, not the fundamentalism" I received an email recommending the interview in "The American Conservative" with Robert Pape: "Looks like we may be trying to put out a fire by pouring gasoline over it. Send this to all you know, especially those who fully support Bush's policies. It is rare to come across an analysis that might ring true for all of us."
From the article: "Since suicide terrorism is mainly a response to foreign occupation and not Islamic fundamentalism, the use of heavy military force to transform Muslim societies over there, if you would, is only likely to increase the number of suicide terrorists coming at us." "The central motive for anti-American terrorism, suicide terrorism, and catastrophic terrorism is response to foreign occupation, the presence of our troops. The longer our forces stay on the ground in the Arabian Peninsula, the greater the risk of the next 9/11, whether that is a suicide attack, a nuclear attack, or a biological attack."- Robert Pape
