Monitoring to stop terrorism must be a good thing?


Only if it had any capacity to stop terrorism. As it doesn't, it's monitoring for the sake of monitoring.


Your source that that bold statement is . . . . . ?

Terrorism may well continue but is the level of terrorism the same or less than might otherwise be the case. A question that neither of us has the knowledge or information to answer honestly and openly.

I see you agree that monitoring does not stop terrorism.

It doesn't stop ALL terrorism. It most likely does stop some terrorism. Therefore "monitoring stops terrorism" is an accurate phrase - "monitoring does not stop terrorism" is not accurate.

Speeding continues but a static camera slows down traffic for a while.

Semantics and statistics can be used to deflect the argument.

No it isn't - unless you have proof?
"monitoring does not stop terrorism" is not accurate
Yes it is, as I said earlier - monitoring happens, terrorism continues.

You think terrorism is like speeding?

I know some people who got shot on a beach in Tunisia who might disagree with you.

You have proof that some terrorism continues. None of us have proof that no terrorism is stopped by monitoring - my suspicion is that there would be more terrorism if there wasn't a level of monitoring, your position is there wouldn't. Without direct access into the security services we aren't likely to get an answer.
