Fred Reed - on the latest sekurity circus response to the latest cheap attempt at terrorism. The terrorists continue to win, but not because of anything they've done. They're winning because of the knee-jerk responses of the US government. [militant]

Ours is not the America it recently was, and it gets differenter by the month. Who would have thought that so little effort would be needed to wreak such internal havoc on the world's hyperpower, fearful of gel deodorants? The success of the terrorists is deplorable, but in strategic terms it has been magnificent. Never have so few done so much to so many so easily.

The down-stream consequences may be amazing, tipping the US over the cliff. The prospect is real, methinks, that Al Quaeda will have brought down the world's hyperpower, afraid of shampoo, for less than a million dollars.
