New Meetup: Terrorism: How can it best be dealt with?

From: John Van P.
Sent on: Sunday, October 17, 2010 2:10 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The World Affairs Discussion Group!

What: Terrorism: How can it best be dealt with?

When: Sunday, November 7,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Flower Hill Mall, west end
2650 Via De La Valle
San Diego, CA 92014

Date change: We will be meeting November 7--the first Sunday in November. (Normally we meet the second Sunday.)

In our recent poll terrorism garnered the most votes for topic of our next meeting.

Some questions to consider:

* A recent book covers this topic through the lense of the Obama White House: Obama's Wars, by Bob Woodward. I have recently begun this work and it's quite informative.

* What are the sources of terrorism?

* Is terrorism the enemy, or is terrorism simply a tactic?

* To what degree are terrorists, drug cartels, and rogue regimes linked?

* Should the police read terrorist suspects their rights, or should they be treated as military captives?

* How should we deal with suspects who may have knowledge of an impending attack?

I'm sure I've left out many relevant issues. Please post your own thoughts on the group's website.

As always...

All views and political orientations are welcome.

We welcome beginners and policy wonks alike. Feel free to join the discussion or just to listen and learn.

If you sign up and change your mind, please change your reply so that someone else may attend.

Meetup to last 1.5 hours (until 5:30 PM) although, of course, people are welcome to continue beyond that point.

Looking forward to another stimulating discussion!
