I qualify it because you can't use a one size fits all solution to terrorism, problem with one size fits all is it fits none very well. Tactics to combat sunni on ****te terrorism are different than fighting al-Queera on ****te violence. (this took BushII years to understand)
Nor can we use drone missile strikes in this country on white supremist compounds like we do in Yemen.
Hence we refine and define. Still why do you use the term 'only' to describe domestic terrorism? Has anyone shrugged their shoulders and said, "eh, it is 'just' domestic terrorism, move along, move along, nothing to see or learn here."? Have they?
Now I have an opinion on why some shy away from the term domestic terrorism. Seems there was a threat assessment report focusing on domestic terrorism that caused some folks to bark and howl about focusing on 'real' Christian Americans exercising their right to keep and bear instead of those radical Islam-i-o-fascists. Lets not remember there were warnings about just such acts of domestic terrorism.
It was spree shootings or some such.
it is social terrorism, (no it ain't, this is tiny fragments of humanity that falls through the cracks, not big chunks of 'society' attacking other parts.) Now the anti-gay crowd MIGHT be social terrorism, but not splinter groups and rogue individuals, they are domestic terrorists.
Good god man, why in the world would you reduce everything down to such a level. You might as well say "everything is just "things".
What a simplistic mindset.
The reason you don't want specificity in the discussion, is because you want to avoid specifically talking about who committed the act.
Does calling something an act of 'domestic terrorism' make you somehow feel better? How? Why? Maybe the problem in that equation is...you.
Yes, yes....because I talk about specific types of terrorism....and you for some reason cannot....it is obvious that the "problem" is specific to me.
Whatever makes you happy......but you don't seem happy here.....so why are you here.....other than exposing your own hypocrisy?
Achmed blows up a backback bomb killing women and children in a souk at Emirs Market...thats 'terrorism'. Adolph guns down 6 innocent people in Wisconsin. Thats 'terrorism'. Why you feel the need to label it anything other than what it is is beyond me.
When a car breaks down how does a mechanic repair it? He doesn't simply say it is broke so I need to fix it. He has to diagnose the specific area of failure to fix the vehicle. The same principle is applicable to terrorism because all cars breaking down do not break down for the same reasons just S terrorism is not always done for the same reasons.
My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)
