How to stop terrorism?
So... as we've discussed in the conversation
Osama Bin Laden is dead. But terrorism is not dead. There's still terrorists out there.
How do we stop terrorism in general, or on the very least, Al-Qaeda?
I've said my primary idea in the linked conversation, that being the focusing of building and defending schools, because that's the only thing that will cut off the supply of people to terrorism - knowledge, and the ability to make decisions on their own. Armed with that, they'd rather die from terrorists than serve them (or better yet, they may con them so as to take them down). Terrorists know this, which in the case of Al-Qaeda is why they attack schools every chance they get.
Besides discussing the plausibility of that idea, I'd also like to see other suggestions for strategies you think governments should do to fight terrorism. That is, what to do where, for how long, why, etc.
