<war with a terrorist ideology is not deterrable.>

Stalinist communism was an ideology that was not deterrable, even though it wasn't terrorist (killing innocent bystanders in foreign countries, though plenty of its own innocent bystanders were killed).

My grandmother, who was a socialist, assured me that Russian communism was aberrant (not socialist). Even she eventually recognized how dangerous they were.

There are still Communist ideologues, and still Communist states (such as China) and rebel movements, which are still dangerous.

Communist ideology is as dangerous as religious ideology, since it has a coherent internal structure, and its adherents can justify that their good ends justify their evil means.
