Well, maybe I should have qualified that "wrong!" with "I believe that is absolutely, completely" but to me it's a "proven" fact, I suppose. I would go so far to say that potential suicide bombers are a tradable commodity between Islamic terrorist groups (and even other unrelated groups), and because of the laws of supply and demand, "price" signals are even a relevant concept. Also Adam Smith's invisible hand will dictate that terrorist organisations are competing for the best. USA has worked hard in reducing the production and distribution - but demand is still strong (consumption is steady) and there is still a glut in the market from the Afghanistan/Iraq training camp days.
