John Mueller, professor of political science at The Ohio State University, argues that acts of terrorism are designed to encourage over-reaction in terms of psychological responses and use of resources; that is what the terrorists hope will happen. He examines these reactions and over-reactions as well as ways to politically lessen these fears that terrorism inspires.
