http://www.welt.de/debatte/kommenta...gefahr-Deutsche-sind-gelassener-geworden.html In the midst of 9/11 coverage worldwide, and when I read that the US will deply 300 more AIT scanners just a week after Germany gave them another failing grade, we have this report about the German collective response to the decade of terror threats. Threat of attack- Germans have become more relaxed. Our security services have become more experienced since the period of the 11th September 2001. Nevertheless, we have not established a society of fear. Germans have become more relaxed, matured, and are no so quick to feel insecure. The piece goes on to talk about the emotionally scarred US and how other countries were better able to maintain a balance of security and freedom over the past decade, even while terror threats occured with loss of life around the world.
