Poll: Americans Resigned To Terror

According to a CBS News poll, 71% of Americans believe the threat of terrorism will always be with us. The poll also offers other interesting findings.

Some may say this perception is gloomy. But to me, it is good news. After all, in my humble opinion, expecting for terrorism to disappear is as realistic as expecting crime or alcoholism to become things of the past. This perception shows that Americans may be willing to embrace pragmatism and pressure their government to pursue a realistic goal of keeping the threat of terror to a minimum as opposed to waging an unrealistic and undefined "War on Terror",- which, just like the "War on Drugs" is likely to create more problems than it solves.
