I'd be more concerned about dying from inclement weather than I'm concerned about being killed by terrorists. They're a non-entity. After a quick search online I found out that 17 Americans died worldwide in 2011 as a result of terrorism. All 17 of them occurred in the Middle East. Don't get me wrong, every death is a tragedy, but it seems to me the best way to prevent this is to get the f*ck out of the Middle East.
The truth is that the perpetrators of 9/11 exploited holes in airline security that don't exist any more. They never had the resources to destroy a building on their own and they had to hijack someone else's technology to do it. Forgive me if I don't shit my pants over Chicago being destroyed and forgive me if I'm more concerned by blatant violations of the Constitution than by modern day's boogeyman equivalent of Communists.
