At first glance, Thursday’s lunch-hour explosions in London looked designed more to alarm than to kill and destroy, as if terrorists were trying to tell Londoners their increased vigilance is futile. As British Prime Minister Tony Blair said, “They’re done to scare people, to frighten them and make them worried.” Still, it seems as if the West had better get used to this new tactic. And the hope that such smaller-scale terrorists won’t similarly target American cities is seeming more hollow all the time. Will all those new homeland security dollars protect us?
