Apparently, fear of terrorists has canceled the Dakar Rally for the first time in 30 years.
This makes me really sad.
If we are worried about terrorists starting to take hold in a "largely peaceful Islamic republic"," is it really the right answer to stop engaging? Shall we turn our backs and shut them out, and hope that our isolation will produce a more peaceful people?
Dakar is one of the few great races of the world, and it is a real shame to let this cancel.
