Recently, I've been pointing out that terrorist attacks are not a viable strategy and are unlikely to damage any critical infrastructure or kill large numbers of people. None ever has, none ever will. Apparently, however, they can still win out in the end. John Reid, btw, is not only an asshat, but a member of Parliment. I think my Limey friends might argue that "asshat" and "MP" are reduntant. That's how it seems to work in the States anyway.
