    The public, the media and politicians seem obsessed with preventing CONVENTIONAL terror attacks at the expense of making UNCONVENTIONAL attacks more likely.

    The entire Bush "strategy" (such as it was beyond indiscriminately killing brown folks to make his buddies hundreds of millions) set the entire globe on edge and made acquiring nukes almost a necessity.

    It radicalized Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and pushed China towards a huge military buildup.

    My point: our "terror" strategy is completely insane and does not address THE biggest fear of our age.
