There is enough moral, psychological and sometimes financial payoff from the act of killing many people to offset the economic loss of their death.

Caught and failed suicide bombers are conspicuously less educated than those who carry out their tasks.
The point of the article is that poverty doesn’t drive terrorism.Â I’d have to agree with that, but I think it is pretty accurate to say that terrorism is driven by money.Â I’m sure that most of the people who do the killing and dying are not motivated by money, but the people at the top almost assuredly are.Â Religion is an easy sell to the masses to motivate them to do their bidding.
