Wired News: Refuse to be Terrorized

Wired News: Refuse to be Terrorized: "The point of terrorism is to cause terror, sometimes to further a political goal and sometimes out of sheer hatred. The people terrorists kill are not the targets; they are collateral damage. And blowing up planes, trains, markets or buses is not the goal; those are just tactics.

The real targets of terrorism are the rest of us: the billions of us who are not killed but are terrorized because of the killing. The real point of terrorism is not the act itself, but our reaction to the act."


Amen. At least not everyone is following the crowd of sheeple. We MUST NOT LET THEM WIN. Yet by overreacting, we do just that. Ironic? No, just sad.
