Americans are brave when it comes to their cars, but cowardly when it comes to Islamic terrorism

Bruce Schneier today points us to Downsize DC. Downsize DC wants to reduce the size of the government generally, as far as I can tell, which I'm not going to get behind, but I do agree with this:

There is really only one way to win a war on terrorism. Stop being afraid!

Achieving this victory does not require large armies, invasions, illegal spying, torture, detention camps, Kangaroo courts, or multi-billion dollar Congressional appropriations. Neither does it require us to shred the Bill of Rights or the Geneva Conventions. All it requires is a little backbone. And a little common sense.
