Re: Yes it's off topic but who cares right now.
The best way to eradicate all terrorists is simply to drain their financial resources. This would have a global support and and no human life would be sacrificed. Imagine if Osama Ben ladin would wake up and find out that he has $0 left. He wouldn't be able to finance any of his efforts. This would expose him and all of his followers where they could be captured and brought to justice (chaining to a building and firing a rocket comes to mind). arman ----- Original Message ----- From: "Roeland Meyer" <[email protected]> To: "'Vadim Antonov'" <[email protected]>; "Steven M.
