US admits rise in terror attacks: "The state department said 625 people were killed in 2003, compared with the 307 it claimed in April."

I'm a little confused over what terrorism is now. Is it to be measured in the number of people dead and injured, or in the "amount" of, um, terror inflicted upon people? If you're just counting the former, then shouldn't you include all the people who have been killed or injured by all the war against such terrorism as well?

If people blow stuff up, but we're not afraid of being blown up ourselves (and thus the amount of terror being inflicted is lessened), then are winning the war on terror?

So really, this is a war against killing people. Those that subvert languages annoy me.
