Live Chat: Why Do We Fight?

See below for the chat box. Join us each Thursday at 3 p.m. EDT for a live conversation with leading scientists and expert reporters.
Today's Topic

What drives suicide bombers to kill themselves? And given our history, will we ever be able to live in a world without war?

Join us for a live chat at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 17 May, on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts. The full text of the chat will be archived on this page
