The 5 Stages of Terrorist Societal Brainwashing1. Violence (Terrorism) – Terrorists thrive on exhausting the ability of a society to cope with the violence.
2. Rational Bargaining (Negotiations) – Terrorist goals are to open negotiations thereby directing the nation down a new “solution” for coping with terrorism.
3. Pleading Bargaining (Appeasement) – Constant terrorist violence blocks any negotiated solution. Terrorists continually pretend to negotiate while engaging in random violence and escalating their demands.
4. Submission (Surrender) – Terrorists have now become a state within a state and have gained the active sympathy and cooperation of much of the nation’s elite.
5. Acceptance (Islam) – The nation is destroyed and recreated on the terrorist’s terms. Its symbols are erased and it becomes an Islamic state.
