Stopping the Proliferation of WMD
The proliferation of WMDs can be summed up with:
Representation, Connection, and Prevention.
The Representation of women and minorities are necessary in such debates, particularly of Muslims.
There is a Connection between WMD and Religion/Nationalism. There is a proliferation of WMD in communities who feel strongly about religion and nationalism. They apply exclusivist interpretations to these terms in order to rationalize and justify the use of WMD against innocent people, or those whom their religious beliefs would not view as innocent.
Prevention should be the greater focus on the ideology of terror. The practical step is the local prevention of local terrorist acts through community-based groups. These groups would work in cooperation with security agencies because many locals who commit the acts have local support.
