How deep the roots of terror?

‘There can never be a purely military solution to a problem with deep political roots’
writes Jonathan Freedland. It’s a lesson, he continues, the US ‘shows no sign of realising in its war on terror’. How deep, we may ask ourselves, are the political roots to the war on terror? Could it be ended by the simple expedients of withdrawing US troops from Saudi Arabia and ending the Irael-Palestine conflict ((simple only when viewed from a global perspective)? What would satisfy the likes of Al Quaeda, or more importantly, those multitudes who sympathy they enjoy?
