Terror is especially terrifying in the USA

Terror is especially terrifying in the USA

Click through for an excellent piece on why shutting down Boston was just the latest victory for terrorists who target the US. Love this line:

What terrorists want is to terrify people; Americans always oblige.

And regarding an attack on London:

I happened to be in London on 7/7—a far more deadly and frightening terrorist attack—and by 7 P.M. on that horrible day, with the terrorists still at large (they were dead already, but no one knew that), the red double-decker buses were rolling and the traffic was turning and life, though hardly normal, was determinedly going on.

Civil liberties aside, maybe it’s time for America to grow a pair.
