Generating Increased Terrorism

In an article linked to at former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter discusses an important resolution before the Chicago City Council opposing war with Iran. He reports on each section of the resolution, amplifying it and defending it, including one which argues that an attack against Iran will inspire more terrorism. Ritter writes that, ”the only way to truly win the war on terror is to identify the point at which an individual decides to embrace terror as a means of achieving an objective, along with the means for which such a decision was made, and then to take actions to prevent that point from ever being reached. To operate as if American policy and actions in Iraq, and the potential of similar actions and activities in Iran, do not influence this equation is simply to ignore reality and embrace ignorance."
