My hope is that our humanity will eventually mature and recognize the perpetual waste of energy and lives when we don't respect each other culture and religion background. At the expense of been considered naive, my hope is eternal that there will be eventually a moment of enlightment of the human race, until then we have to trust but verify that there are no loose canons out there.

It has nothing to do with being unable to tolerate other people's happiness, or with any sort of envy - that's a myth encouraged by some states that are victims of terrorism (either foreign or home-grown). People turn to terrorism as a last-resort method to achieve certain aims - typically to achieve freedom (in their eyes) from some sort of oppression, or to advance political or (very occasionally) religious goals. And psychopathy is something totally different - there is no reason to believe that a significant fraction of terrorists are psychopathic. Most psychopaths live peaceful lives.

Some are not able to tolerate the happy living of others. They only turn in to terrorists or physcos. There needs an invention on this.Or a survey and research required. Monitoring of every citizen is required.Especially Those who do not mix in the society to be seen for their activities.

The saddest thing perhaps is that the UK used to know how to deal with terrorists - you treat them as criminals and arrest them. When the IRA bombed a pub, it was a crime. The people killed or injured, and their relatives, dealt with it the same way as with any other unexpected deaths such as car crashes. The police dealt with it as a crime. And ordinary people simply went to a different pub the next night. The key point is that the terrorists failed - they did not cause terror. But since the overreaction of 911, the situation changed. Bush got scared, and lashed out like an angry toddler, demanded revenge instead of justice, and the world had to follow. Instead of going after the people behind the attack to punish those responsible and reduce the risks in the future, we've had countries destroyed and collective punishment on everyone. The bill for such absurd security measures as with the Olympics, the mostly unnecessary airport security, and the fear instilled in people's everyday lives - that's collective punishment.

I think there will be around 10,000 athletes taking part in the 2012 Olympics. It would cheaper to cancel the games and give each athlete $100,000 and tell them to stay at home :-(
