Thus, thinking that the job is finished could not be more wrong, for anyone who knows even a little bit about guerrilla and terrorist warfare knows that unless the general conditions that caused the growth of terrorist cells or guerrilla armies are substantially changed, they will eventually grow again, and since the very person who know how to do it and enjoys no scruples in order to kill is still alive - and he is smart indeed - sooner or later we will wake up very bitterly. The dice are rolling, whether we like that or not.
