    Of course you can. Both were civilians that had not been convicted of any crime and were assassinated.

    Osama ordered people killed. What crime did this civilian of Iran commit? Working on a nuclear program is NOT A CRIME. You can't equate these two.

    You have proof that this worker was actively trying to develop a tool to destroy the world? I'd like to see this proof that THIS ONE worker was doing what you accuse him of and justify him being assasinated for.
    Here ya go.

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Two assailants on a motorcycle attached magnetic bombs to the car of an Iranian university professor working at a key nuclear facility, killing him and another person Wednesday, state TV reported. The slayings suggest a widening covert effort to set back Iran's atomic program.

    Karma is a bitch. Hopefully you or someone you care about isn't killed in this way.
    I am confident that no one I care about is developing nuclear bombs for Iranian or North Korean governments. So I think they are ok.

    Yet you are in complete agreement with the one who actually introduced the false concept into this thread and keeps accusing people of supporting it.

    It would be magnitudes less hypocritical of you if you were to take it up with him, instead.

    Was Jack or Robert's Kennedy's assassination an act of terrorism?

    Iran developing nuclear weapons is a bigger threat the safety of the world than Bin Laden could ever dream to be.

    Re: Car bombs kill Iranian nuclear expert

    The word terrorism has gotten stretched out a bit. I view terrorism as targeting the general population, people not directly associated with the military or some program or act which the terrorist is against, to create terror and public pressure to change things.
