Two types of terrorism
There are two main types of terrorism. That which uses guns and bombs and that which uses words to terrify the public into going along with whatever those in power want. The latter - hardly ever defined as such - is what has gotten us in an endless succession of failed conflicts since the end of World War II. Now it is apparently working again. A recent poll finds over half of Americans support the use of ground troops against ISIS. Of course, it was our misbegotten use of ground troops and aircraft in the Mid East that gave birth to ISIS in the first place.
