The paper examines the issue of negotiation with terrorists and how this can affect America's policy regarding the war on terror. The paper examines the issue and shows how diplomacy can do little to protect the nation from future attacks on the scale of September 11th. The paper discusses how this realization dictates that America must communicate with terrorists in the only language they understand; violence. The paper points out that terrorist negotiation can only happen when the terrorists themselves have transformed to a more stable and rational state of mind.
