Petter har ett citat i sin blogg som så klockrent beskriver vad jag försökt säga ett bra tag nu, så jag måste bara sno det:

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.
