Stirring and worthwhile "modest proposal" by Bruce Schneier.

Share It With Others!

Excellent article by Bruce Schneier sets the benchmark for any future discussion and clearly identifies the problem as politicians and civil servants covering their backsides instead of making people as safe as possible.

"Does the TSA Ever Catch Terrorists? If they do, for some reason they won't admit it."

"The war on terror is over. We lost." -- the weak-minded direct-causal thinking that's driven the west's entire response to the educated, layered and cunning strategy Bin Laden has been executing to destroy non-Islamic society has indeed led to the result Bin Laden wanted, as fear has overwhelmed justice and justice has overwhelmed mercy.

The first credible explanation for the war on water bottles at our airports.

More intensely sensible comment from Schneier. We need to refuse to be terrorised, which means refusing to tolerate security theatre that responds to it by propogating it. To the readers who only read my comments and not the articles; go on, read this one before you accuse me of stuff for a change!

Show this to every politician: "What we need is security that's effective even if we can't guess the next plot: intelligence, investigation and emergency response. ... The real security failure on Christmas Day was in our reaction. We're reacting out of fear, wasting money on the story rather than securing ourselves against the threat. Abdulmutallab succeeded in causing terror even though his attack failed.

If we refuse to be terrorized, if we refuse to implement security theater and remember that we can never completely eliminate the risk of terrorism, then the terrorists fail even if their attacks succeed."

Calm and rational comment from Schneier as usual. It's time someone in government did the joined-up thinking on this issue and helped us all to switch to a "Keep Calm and Carry On" approach.

A refreshingly realistic view from The Economist.

Maybe just a touch hyperbolic, but I do believe it's time for root-and-branch reform of the US security response so that it stops being an implementer of the terrorists' strategy to disrupt the west into submission.
