The War on Terror will not be won because it is far too easy for radical groups to commit terrorism. Governments around the world cannot stop terrorism because it is impossible to control the entire population of a country. Individuals are able to get weapons and attack communities and government buildings and there is little that the governments of the world can do to stop this.

I don't see how destroying the planet is a win for the governments fighting The War on Terror. The governments would never use nuclear weapons on extremist groups like Al Qaeda or the Taliban.

Con

you see the war of terror must be won, because a problem without a solution is not a problem. even if it means a gigantic astroid destroying all humans on this planet there is still a winner, plants, animals, the enviroment.

In response to my opponent. No The War on Terror cannot be won. There is not a solution to every problem for example death, us as humans cannot avoid death. This goes the same for The War on Terror because it cannot be won.

There is no way to end terrorism because there will always be someone to pick up the arms and fight government across the world. There are just too many people to control and if we focus on one area of the world then terrorism will just increase in other parts of the world.

Con

problems definition: a matter or situation regarded as unwelcome or harmful and needing to be dealt with and overcome

if it can not be felt with and over come it is not a problem. death someday will be avoided, death is already being avoided to day. new medicines are created to prevent death.

I think it COULD be won, but it WON'T be, because we're not willing to go to the extremes necessary to win against the ideas behind 'terror'.
