I am not against travel and I agree the terrorists win when one incident causes many people to fear travel. Maybe I was unclear and a little cold saying "stay home" I was simply making a point of assuming risks and taking responsibilty if something were to happen. I certainly would assume more risk traveling to Bagdad then I would walking from my living room to my kitchen. Risks are everywhere. We make decisions in our life based on risk/reward everyday. If I make the decision to travel to a risky area of the world I alone should pay the price for that decision and hope, not demand, my countrymen come to my rescue. But, if safety is a concern to someone, the decision can be exploring parts of OUR country on a vacation instead of going abroad.
