G8 moves on Terrorism

6.19.2005

Spotted this a few days ago but forgot to post it, G8 ministers have agreed to pool information in an effort to clamp down on terrorism. Its a wonderful idea but another section caught my eye.
"Our research will go through all possible sources of recruitment for terrorism and analyse from the bottom up how this happens and why it happens," said Mr Clarke. "We want to work more closely on understanding what the motivations for terrorism are."
Thats great stuff but one would think that almost 4 years after September 11 and a further 12 years since the first attack on the WTC that some concerted effort would ahve already been made to 'understand' terrorism. Slow and unresponsive, yup thats our international system.
