I think a large partof the damage is not so much in line with what the
terrorists think of as thier main gaol, but rather actual instances of the
decemination of our way of live. heck we do a good job of it with out
terrorists, but with em the crumbling may go faster. The recent roundof
PATRIOT laws is an example.

In a way the situation takes on a movement all its own apart from the
fatwas and jihads and "wars on xxxxx"

If the goal is to do away with the "American" way of live then there are
lots of roads to it.
