    Terrorists would never think of shaving their beards and taking off the turbans.

    Of course not. Terrorists are uncoordinated and incapable of conforming to various levels of resistance. This is exactly why the most powerful military in the history of the world is not currently launching massive counter-terrorist operations in the black-hole of the world.

    Someone once said that the traits we most readily attribute to others (e.g. one-dimensional reasoning or linear thinking) are those which are most reflective of ourselves.

    That someone was pretty spot on.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Do the numbers. The problem is Sunni Arabism across the region and internationally.

    Do the numbers. The problem is Sunni Arabism across the region and internationally.
    Internationally, which is what we are talking about, the problem is less with Arabs and more with homegrown Terrorism, as seen in Russia, Mumbai, and London.

    Would you expect another attack in India to be perpetrated by Pakistanis or Yemenis?

    The guy was trying to blow up a plane with 220 passengers on it. Of course it was terrorism.

    What isn't know is if this was a plot dictated by a specific terrorist organization or just some crazy guy.
