“In a large terrorist attack there will always be casaulties”

When a country is reeling from a terrorist attack, regardless of the country. The people always get the “pep” talks. “We weren’t broken,” “we will rebuild”, “this was a victory for the people”, “we would like to thank the first responders”, blah, blah, blah. Are you going to be burying a child, a spouse, a parent, from this monstrous terrorist attack? Do you suppose those that are, have dismissed the death of their loved one as just another casualty or a VICTORY? The aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing was treated in the same manner, all the leaders paid by the people to protect the people spouted the same crap of how we won. The truth is, they weren’t doing their jobs, they looked the other way. Now there are dozens of people with prosthetic limbs being told they won.

It appears that you have already conceded to terrorism, accepting casualties, across the world as a new way of life. Demand answers as to how this was allowed to happen. Make your leaders accountable for not acknowledging their failure to protect you against the Islamic death givers around the world. Don’t defend their celebration of doing nothing and then declaring victory.

Don't get me wrong. Tough questions will be asked. No questions about that, and positive changes will be made. That wasn't my point however. My point is that expecting a 100% success rate is not possible. Kenya cannot do that, Israel hasn't achieved that, and trust me neither can the US. It's like a game of ice hockey ...no matter how good your team is the puck will eventually get through. There will always be a leaker. The Kenyans have stopped a number of attacks (just last year two Iranians were arrested with lots of explosives), and there have been a number of joint Kenyan-Israeli operations.

Does that mean one should rest on their laurels? No. However, a 100% success rate is simply not possible. That means you have to be successful every single time, and the other guy a failure every single time.

That is not 'conceding' to terrorism, but rather reality. At least I cannot think of one country in the world that has achieved it.

However you do raise a salient point - questions must be asked and security tightened. But no matter what no country will achiever 100% success rate.

(Unless maybe the US decides to put its nukes to useful purpose and sanitize the earth of a certain problem, but we both know that will never happen)
