This chapter discusses the failure of the United States to address suicide terrorism. It highlights the facts that American military policies have not stopped the rising wave of extremism in the Muslim world and that anti-American suicide terrorism is rapidly rising worldwide. This trend may be attributed to America's occupation of two large Muslim countries and the deployment of special forces in numerous Muslim countries. The chapter argues that by ending the perception that the United States and its allies are occupiers, it will be possible to “cut the fuse” to the suicide terrorism threat.
