Terrorism is hard to combat: clandestine, well-equipped and exploitative of current scientific and technological knowledge for its ends. Trying to hunt terrorists down is tantamount to aiming at an unknown, hidden target while proclaiming the attack to everyone within range. How effective can stepping up surveillance and defence technologies be when terrorists are constantly deriving new weapons for mass destruction based on scientific research and technological breakthroughs readily available to the layman? Join the discussion with our panel:
