Terrorists in Belgium

Today, our thoughts go to the inhabitants of Belgium, where terrorists detonated bombs this morning.

I have family ties in Belgium, my paternal grandfather was born there. Regardless of this, the whole civilised world must stand up on the side of the innocent victims in Belgium today.

There are too many terrorist attacks. Something has to be done about it. The question is what can be done. Terrorists seldom play by the "rules" of war, there is no front line where you can attack the army of the terrorists. If you force some terrorists to an unconditional surrender, it does nothing to stop other terrorists. On one hand, you have to force the current terrorists to stop. On the other hand, you have to convince young people not to become terrorists. Both parts are hard, but have to be done. Where are the world leader to make this happen?
