American security in insecurity

No major terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 for more than a decade. They now feel a lot more confident and safe. I imagine they will bring back the Act if they get hit again. America can afford to learn lessons this way and it might actually make them stronger and more resilient in the long run. Small and vulnerable states like us cannot afford this but for having it good for a very long time, do we not become weak and fragile?

Meanwhile quietly their scientific minds must be developing the next generation of tools which allow them to be less intrusive as well as more effective. We have every incentive to do the same. In fact the government had at times hinted our defense research capabilities is our secret weapon. They leave it to us to imagine what these might be, and Tim Huxley if he knows some isn't sharing either.
