But How Can We End the War on Terror?

According to Boing Boing, a new report from the RAND Corporation (military & political think-tank, amongst other things) has identified that the best way to defeat Al Qaeda is to stop the military force activities that are inciting them to their own attacks of terrorism.  Better solutions involve political settlements and local policing/intelligence activities that don't cause the terrorist group to stray further from a desire to compromise or otherwise settle their disputes.

While some folks have been preaching this for years, it's nice to see that there's a reputable group out there backing up this opinion.  Not that this by itself changes anything in our current situation, but there's always the chance some political advisers might have a change of heart and focus on something besides the "War on Terror", just like they moved away from the "War on Drugs" a while back.
