Can Increased Security Stop Terrorism?

This should come as no surprise to anyone listening. Even the Secretary of Homeland Security has stated that we cannot be fully safe from terrorist attacks like the one that occurred in London last week. We can reasonably increase our safety by improving our security through new technologies and programs available, but realistically we will never be 100% safe. Even President Bush in the past has let it slip that 100% safety is not feasable, but he quickly retracted. Even a city like London, that is so much better equipped to prevent a terrorist attack, could not stop it. Terrorists have time and patience at their side, and they choose where to strike. We do not have the financial resources or the manpower to protect every potential target in the nation. As I have said previously, we will have to learn to live with an acceptable level of risk and continue with our daily lives. Hey, the rest of the world does it! It is about time we start doing it too.
