‘War on jihadists won't end unless tackling root causes’

AFP, Washington

Western powers fighting Islamist groups around the globe are condemned to a never-ending battle if they only tackle the symptoms and not the underlying causes of jihadist insurgency, experts say. "Beyond the tactical victories on the ground, the current strategy is failing," said Katherine Zimmerman, who wrote a recent report for the American Enterprise Institute entitled "Terrorism, Tactics and Transformation: The West vs the Salafi-Jihadi Movement."

"Every soldier and intelligence analyst that has worked on this problem understands what is happening," Zimmerman told AFP. "They understand that what they are doing is a temporary solution. It's ending the immediate threat but not stabilizing or moving us forward. The problem comes down to policy and politics," she noted. "It's easy to say, 'We're going to kill the person responsible for making the bomb.'
