I feel like this is a horror movie where someone says "It's quiet, too quiet" and suddenly Freddy Krueger or Jason jumps out of a closet and kills everybody. I keep waiting for that Freddy Krueger moment where al-Qaeda drives a bus full of kids into the middle of town gets all the cameras around them and chops of their heads one by one.

Hopefully I am wrong.
