Terrorism is an overarching label and mechanism for TPTB to manipulate populations and achieve required political backing for carrying out nefarious wars.
Prior to this.....
The commies are coming
Nuclear War and MAD
And so on
Apparently after Terrorism has worn itself out the next major "created" threat is an asteroid hitting the earth.

I would agree that the odds of a U.S. citizen dieing in a terrorist attack are very slim, but that does not mean terrorism does not exist.
Al Qaeda was created by the CIA to fight the Russians in Afghanistan.
The USA was founded by terrorists, they fought unconventionally.
Now the word terrorist just means anti-American.

When I was a kid the big bad unreasonably evil boogie man who wanted to kill American kids, soccer moms, kittens and wet nose puppies was the infamous "commie".. "red menace", dad-gum "soviets".
Once the "reds" were gone,the shadowy overlords needed a new omnipresent foe to keep the military industrial complex fed and keep the sheep scared: "terrorists"... enter Americas Reichstag and introduction to the new enemy.
It's all fake, transparently so.
