Lol, you must have forgot about the Korean War and the Vietnam War. More Americans drowned in the swimming pools than died on 9-11 in 2001. Let's not even mention car accidents or drug violence. Yes terrorism is a problem but threat inflation is not the solution. Bin Laden never posed an existential threat to the US. Trying to say we are more threatened now than when facing the Soviqet Union is disingenuous. The Soviets could wipe us off the face of the planet in 30 minutes. The muslims terrorists are just insignificant gnats.
