SayWhat? | 9 years ago | Reply Money is must for good deed or bad, by hook or be crook, by donation or by coersion. So the West is not wrong about tracking the terrorists through the "money trail". No wonder underground methods like smuggling, hundi, parchi, drug traficking, kidnapping and robberies are a must for extremists cause to survive. It's very simple then to choke the neck by the force of law than by "force" of equal violence.
