Why Terrorism Does Not Work (Max Abrahms)

Phi Beta Iota:  Terrorism is a tactic.  Both Israel and the USA have used it to great effect, and evidently continue to use it today, not only as a flag political tactic, but in the case of Isreal, to sell security services (warn of car bomb; car bomb; sell tons of cameras and security services to morons that don’t realize they’ve been had).  Terrorists want what we all want: dignity for themselves and legitimacy in any government that pupports to be responsible for their liberty and general welfare.  The Preamble to the Constitution is always a useful touchstone–Ron Paul does not get three of the four parts:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
