    You can wave your arms all you want. You can bad-mouth me all you want.  You can wave the flag all you want.  You can dance the Irish jig on your head if you want. The harsh simple verifiable mathematical reality from anyone who can count, is still the same----> the number of terrorist attacks, both worldwide and in the US, was miniscule before the War on Terror, has not gone down during the War on Terror, and is still miniscule now.  At most, about 1,000 people are killed, per year, from terrism oh noez !!!!"  In a world with 7 billion people.  Honeybees and lightning strikes each kill more people. There has been no measurable effect on terrorist attacks or on deaths produced by them, anywhere, as a result of the Global War on terror. Terrists oh noez !!! killed virtually nobody before the GWOT, and they still kill virtually nobody now.

    You are peeing your pants over nothing.  (shrug)
