I believe the only way to fight terrorism is not to fight at all, but to un-make terrorists. Let's go to the places that have been destroyed, no matter who did it. And when we get there, let's build what is needed.

Let's build wells, and hospitals, and shelters, and farms, and schools, and libraries. And yes, let's send the military. To do the building and to guard the builders - but not to hunt. Never to hunt.

Let's honestly create and build and leave the world better. Let's do the heavy, boring, unglamorous work of healing.

And yes, let's do it while wearing our uniforms. Let's make it clear that we are helping. But let's also make it clear that there are no strings attached. There is no catch.

Yes, it would be very expensive. But I believe that in the long run, it would be far cheaper financially than this endless cycle of pouring trillions of dollars into destroying, and killing, and leaving waste and misery in our wake.

Terrorists are made from desperation. So let's unmake desperation.
