"We all recall that the United States financed Osama bin Laden during the Eighties in order to defeat the Soviet Union in Afghanistan."

That wasn't a bad strategy. It's just the enemy of my greater enemy type of thing. And it saved everyone from a head-to-head combat with the soviets, which no one wants, and in any case it's not certain which side the Europeans would have taken in such a conflict.

"There is no common effort, for example, to outlaw suicide bombing politically and legally as a crime against humanity."

What would be the point of that? It's not like a prison sentence would deter anyone.

Well no, but it could be used to get the bastards who send others out on suicide missions.
