    Really? You need more than "subject committed an act of terror"? Why? To what objective?

    To understand why it happened to find ways to reduce the occurrence.
    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)

    You wont find that by labeling it something other than 'terrorism'. You will find that if you examine who and why.

    Examining the who and why is exactly the reason for the specific labels.

    Do you realize we aren't saying it isn't terrorism?

    Oh yes...I get the reason...I simply disagree. I see no value in it. Terrorism is terrorism. He committed an act of terror or he didnt.

    Got it, if you take a specific act and place it in a blanket category, that is not "douche-y", but if others make blanket statements about specific acts, they are "douche-y".

    Like I said, the hypocrisy is thick.

    So then, to follow on your logic, the way to prevent all terrorism...is to use the same methods...no matter what, no matter who, no matter where.

    As soon as you discover the secret to 'preventing terrorism' you be sure to let the world know. In the interim, yes...we use investigation, infiltration, information, and do the best we can. Across the board..

    So THAT is your objective in labeling a terrorist act 'domestic'?

    No...using a specific act or incident as a platform to attack others is specifically douche-y. Agreed?
