Email of the DayBut here in the U.S. we have King Georgie boy saying things like, "you never know where they may try to strike," and Cherthoff fanning fears with his statement on the Sunday talking head shows that "international terrorism might come to the United States through Europe."

BBC is remarking on how calm the public was during the ‘car bomb’ attack on the Glasgow airport, how little panic or ‘terror’ there was — mostly just people whipping out their mobile phone cameras and filming everything in sight.
Arrests made on the M6 motorway in Cheshire last night as well. People got out of cars and offered to HELP the police.
Glasgow Airport is back up and running, passengers being interviewed coming off planes have said things are running smoothly, no problems. A bit of a hassle walking around the cordoned off bits of the airport, but no one’s complaining. Lots of smiling faces.
It’s almost psychology in reverse — the more fanatics try to terrorise the British, the more the British refuse to be terrorised. We’re more worried about the goddamned rain at the moment.
Let's be vigilant, but let's not let the terrorists get what they want. Never forget that the name "terrorist" comes from the tactic of creating fear and terror in the general population. When we become fearful and terrorized and change the way we live, the terrorists win. No matter who they are.
