U.N.’s Ban Ki-moon: To Combat Terrorism, We Must Focus on ‘Politics of Inclusion’

‘Among the many tools we must use, we must also tackle the underlying conditions that provided violent extremist groups the opportunity to take root’

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon Wants To Fight Terror With ... 'Inclusion' (Truth Revolt)

At the United Nations today, the Security Council held a session on terror that was presided over by President Obama. During the session, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon made remarks about the nature of terror, and what is required to fight it. His remarks reflect the feel-good, do-nothing philosophy for which the U.N. is famous, and which do nothing to help anyone, or stop anything.

"Among the many tools we must use, we must also tackle the underlying conditions that provided violent extremist groups the opportunity to take root. Immediate security issues must be addressed. Over the longer term, the biggest threat to terrorists is not the power of missiles, it is the politics of inclusion. It is peaceful societies and respect for human rights. It's education, jobs, and real opportunity. It's leaders who listen to their people and uphold the rule of law. Missiles may kill terrorists, but good governance kill terrorism."
