The bankruptcy of terrorism

As someone who ran the Boston Marathon several times & usually crossed the finish line in just over four hours--at the same time as the bombing today--I am horrified by the barbarism & cowardice & criminality of terrorism as a political method--including individual & state terrorism.

They still don't know who did this so it's too early for political judgements. The US government will ride its high horse & use this incident to clamp down more on civil liberties. That's why terrorism is so bankrupt as a political method. But US state terrorism, including drone attacks on innocent civilians in several countries, is the primary cause for individual acts of violence & desperation.
