Being serious about terrorism means doing what terrorist groups want

I really don't understand why so many people completely lose their shit when an incident is attributed to terrorism, as opposed to any other cause. Yes, there attacks are horrible but I think they are just as horrible when a American shoots dozens of people. And you would have to be a total moron to think that ISIS or any other terrorist group actually poses an "existential threat" to the United States.

The only way they can pose any real threat to the country is when they prompt a crazy overreaction. That's the whole point of terrorism. So stop overreacting.
