So now it comes down to odds, then?
Since my chances of being personally killed by a nutty Islamic Taliban bedwetting psychopath are low, I shouldn't care if they're looking to off some more of us. Chances are, I won't be the one, so let's just be merry!
On the other hand, we probably ought to have the government invade shark-infested waters and off a few of those Anti-American bastards!
Who's with me?!
