Terror Alerts!

A recent wave of discovery puts the world in a very awkward place. It seems that every single security measure put in place after 9/11 in the travel industry has been a complete waste of time. All that time we spend at the airports waiting for the authorities to go through our stuff and make sure we are not carrying bombs has had no effect in any way. The terrorists are still sneaking through and through. First the shoe bomber last year, and now they are going through the parcel delivery services and sticking plastic explosives in printer toners.

Of course we, the normal civilians, all know what it means when terrorism strikes. We are normally the ones taking the subways, or busses, or planes when they get blown up or crashed into something. The best and most effective way to deal with terrorism is to ignore it and continue with life as it would be normally. Think of terrorists as a bunch of 2 year olds. All they want is attention. The more media coverage (like the recent parcel "attacks") and the more the government strives to cut off possibilities for terrorists to attack but making our lives worse all together, this is what fuels these infantile "douchebags."

Just ignore it. People living and working in big cities know the risk. Some are more dangerous than others like New York, Paris and London. I half expect to see the European Commission in a smoldering ruin every night when I have to go past it. But if it happens, so be it. It will be horrible for a lot of people, including non-directly affected, but this is life in the modern world. It has been the same for decades before, nothing has changed.

So stop trying to stop these terrorist by making our lives worse. This way, we will end up stopping travelling, and causing the economy to drop further, and then capitalism is over - terrorists win. Either you decide to send out a couple of nukes and take their entire caved up mountains out or you just let us live normal lives without further intrusions.
