(DEAN BARNETT HERE)
Today we scored a great victory in the war on terror. And justifiably, few of us feel like celebrating.
I think this is symptomatic of the fact that even for those of us who never forgot about the great dangers of our era, today’s news served as a sobering shot across our bow. So what to do?
First, we engage or re-engage with full vigor. We don’t piss and moan about airport lines. We instead thank the people at TSA and the National Guard for trying to keep us safe.
And we deal with our New Normal (five years old now) that there is no safety while Jihadists run governments and intend us harm. Some people call bloggers like me warmongers; alas, we could send 100 People Powered Democrats to the Senates and war would still be upon us and already openly declared.
So we deal with it. That’s what Americans do.
