    So being a CIVILIAN worker on a project is ok to be killed? Sounds like Al-qaeda thinking to me.

    This is not terrorism. And as far as I'm concerned not a civilian since he was working on Iranian nukes.

    We need to stop their nuclear program, and this is much better than going to war with them.

    Again, justifying a civilian being killed just because he is working on a project YOU DON'T LIKE, does not justify a terrorist attack like this and is more in line with how Al-Qaeda operates more than anything.

    Al-Qaeda killed workers in Iraq because the workers were helping a government they didn't support. You are using their same justification to kill a civilian worker.

    No doubt some of the same people praising this assassination criticized Obama for taking out bin Laden. Because of course ... Obama.

    It's not like he was working on a bridge or something, he was working on a nuclear bomb, and a crazy, unstable regime like Iran must not be allowed to have the power to literally destroy the planet. Their nuclear program must be stopped, and covert actions like this should be supported by everyone who doesn't want them to have a nuclear bomb.

    The difference being Osama actually had people killed, where this worker in Iran was simply driving his car.

    It's even worse that some are justifying this assasination of the Iranian.

    It seems that people in this thread do not know what terrorism is. Simply put, it is violence against civilians for politica purposes. Thus, this act, by definition, is terrorism.

    In addition to this, Iran is not making nuclear weapons according to Leon Panetta, the current US Secretary of Defense (US: Iran has not yet decided to build nuclear bomb - Yahoo! News) (Panetta admits Iran not developing nukes | The Raw Story) (Panetta: Iran Has Not Yet Decided To Make A Nuclear Bomb | Fox News) (Panetta: Iran not building bombs yet)
    "And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."

    Again try justifying it all you want if it makes you feel better. Al-Qaeda sure did.
