Terrorists Want You to Freak Out - That is the Whole Point

...and on Aug. 18, a plane flying from London to Egypt made an emergency landing in Italy when someone found a bomb threat scrawled on an air sickness bag. Nothing was found on the plane, and no one knows how long the note was on board.

I'd like everyone to take a deep breath and listen for a minute.

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.

And we're doing exactly what the terrorists want. [Read the whole thing]

Your mistake is from the beginning.

Terrorists want control and they will try to take it by whatever means they have available.

If everyone would just do as they demand, they wouldn't hurt anyone...maybe...or maybe for a while.

Their lack of ethics and morality comes into play whenever people won't do what the terrorists want, just like any other criminal group: Mafia, Blood, Yakuza, school bully or liquor-store hold-up guy.

Jason, you're adding complexity where none is actually needed.

Terrorists don't want you to freak out: They 'just' want you to do what they tell you to do.
good post Jason....they wanted to ruin the economy too. Now that is the excuse Bushites use for the ruined economy!!!!!!!
