    some context vis a vis media reality vs the world at large:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/02...errorism_fear/

    "every year in the UK, more people die in road accidents than have
    been killed by terrorists in all of recorded history."

    It seems the govt/media promote a different agenda.

    Absolutely true BlackIce! Sensationalist media bastards are better off ignored while we conduct our own campaign to inform and educate by being ourselves as openly and as positively as we can.

    There is plenty of sensationalist fetish PR going on. That's how you promote "something" by sensational appeals. Ask any pay for view web site owner.

    Anyway the stat that Blackice sites totally misses the point. The number of accidents or deaths from high risk behavior will always be a very small percentage of almost any actuarial stats for death. You would need to compare apples to apples at least.

    Indeed. I think it raises the question: What is more important? Cars, or Freedom?

    Every year, a bit more than 40 000 people die, in the USA alone, in traffic accidents. This is a pretty grim toll, but it seems that we, as a society, have decided that this is an acceptable price to pay for being able to drive cars.

    I think we can all agree that a free and just society is more vulnerable to terrorism than a police state. I think we can also agree that freedom is more important than car driving.

    So why are we SOOO afraid of terrorism that we are willing to give away our freedoms and rights? I say that if we are willing to accept 40 000 dead a year from car accidents, we should be willing to accept the occasional disastrous terrorists attack, just so we can remain free. It's the price of freedom.

    That dirtbag terrorist has rights and due process should be followed. Only after that can we actually say that the suspect IS a dirtbag terrorist, and not a poor sap at the wrong place at the wrong time, or say, someone who opposes steep electricity prices (see http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/0...macdonald.html ). Due process doesn't protect terrorists, it protects us all.
