Germany's Surprise

A Yahoo! News article on the arrest of suspects of the failed train bombing in Germany reads:
The planned attack here stunned Germans who thought the country's vehement
opposition to the Iraq war would insulate it from becoming a terror target almost five years after the attacks on Washington and New York.
Sorry, Germany. It doesn't work that way. Terrorists have been performing their murderous acts on innocent civilians long before 9/11, not only in the U.S., but all over the world. Nor is the U.S. their sole target; the West as a whole is their goal. Avoiding confrontation and playing ostrich have no effect when dealing with ruthless enemies. Germany of all countries should know this. Appeasement didn't work with them over a half century ago, either.
