“We are aware of our vulnerabilities now. We knew these things before, but we didn’t feel them. We knew about the security tests at airport after airport that exposed shortcomings, in which laughably underpaid and undertrained personnel were expected to protect us.

We knew about the arrogance and the cock-strutting of our military and police, who were convinced and convinced us they were the best in the world. Now the prideful boasting looks suspiciously like that of the British at the end of its empire.”
