Abject Failure

The intent of terrorism is to change people's behavior by inducing terror. The Al Qaeda franchisees who claim credit for hitting London with a pale imitation of one day of the Blitz claim that they have "Britain now burning from fear and panic from the north to the south, from the east to the west." They don't.

Found via the Drink-Soaked Trotskyite Popinjays for War, who, in turn, I found via Michael J. Totten. These are people with whom I disagree on exactly what shape civilization ought to take, but who have a clear understanding of just who the enemies of civilization are.


More absence of terror.


Aaron doubts this resolve will lead to meaningful results, but in the short run, this is as brave an action as I have ever heard of.
