OK, now that headline is definitely hyperbole to get your attention. But as the New York Sun notes:

Update: In City Journal, John Robb explores the flip side of the Glenn Reynolds’ “Army of Davids” meme:

Eventually, one man may even be able to wield the destructive power that only nation-states possess today. It is a perverse twist of history that this new threat arrives at the same moment that wars between states are receding into the past.

Robb’s article is titled, “The Coming Urban Terror”, which also dovetails into Mark Steyn’s latest essay.
