One year ago today. Apparently I say this a lot.
Terrorism only works if we are terrorized. Fifty murders are a tragedy, but barely moves the dial on gun violence in this country.
ISIS is losing physical territory in the world, they are resorting to lone wolf attacks because that's what they can do. They do not pose the kind of existential threat that Soviet missles did, nor Nazi tanks. Invading another country, carpet bombing villages won't make us safer. Want to defeat terrorism? Don't be terrorized.
