Max. Ive been in wartime situations involving the types of terrorism that was demo'd in Boston on Mon. All I can say from experience is that it doesnt "Go away" once theyve figured out how you work. The "good guys" winning isnt even the issue in terrorism. Its a repeated slogging and inconveniencing of a large group of people to make a point. Killing isnt even the goal, discomfort to as many as possible is.
We will disagree mightily on this. Weve got to think like terrorists to fight
them. We sure didnt do that here. We gave other terroroists a "training film on a number of subjects like "disguises", "Tricking cameras" "detonators " "How to shut down an entire urban area" (unnecessarily) and Police tactics. Youre still basking in some light of a weeklong bit of introduction to terror. What if this would happen every few
I was involved in the Biafran terror wars of the late 1970's and saw how escalation of terror was only possible when too many "hands" were shown by the target governments. Terrorists are very adaptable and we shouldnt be riunning free clinics for them.
