Tourists and Terrorists

June 02, 1986

Will's column makes me wonder what he's trying to say. Does he mean that Americans, by traveling to areas where terrorists are operating, will combat this craziness by their numbers? Or that our overseas friends who miss our smiling faces and our pocketbooks will be made friendlier, knowing that Americans are available for terrorists to intimidate? Does that mean, if there are no Americans do the terrorists stop operations?

I hope Will understands that the terrorists operate as they do, and where they do, because of convenience, i.e. Europe is easily reached from their various headquarters.

Will suggests that Americans assist them in their nefarious schemes by becoming a closer target. His closing paragraph defies comment, particularly the veiled threat. Does he mean that, by staying home, American can expect more terrorist attacks? How?
