A different paradigm of warfare: Terrorism. Though this type engagement has been around for some time, it appears to be gaining popularity and effectiveness. What inspires human beings to volunteer for suicide missions? Is it a matter of desperation or manipulation? Does "Jihad" really mean what the extremists claim? Why don't more "moderate" Muslims speak out? Is the Iraq war reducing terrorism or invigorating hatred towards the West, namely, the United States? This serious and enigmatic topic is contemplated by our international discussion group.

Xochitl, Christopher, Esther, Arman, Christy, & Dave grapple over this international matter with perspectives from France, Iran, Korea, Mexico, & America.
