    I'll add that the mother appears coached in geopolitical terminology (I mean the study of her words, not her study of anything). Or she's totally ****ing insane.

    As usual.
    The legal definition of terrorism is far from perfect, and it was an area of debate among college professors when I went to the university.

    the CIAs definition is so vague, the Boston Tea Party could potentially qualify as terrorism under it.

    It's not a debate you can win or lose. I would say most people at some point just agree that the definition is far from perfect and leaves lots of questions.

    And another big clue was when she said that the Boston police framed her sons.

    There have been other 'test runs'; I bet this fits those profiles. Most importantly, incompetence.
    It shocks me how stupid they were too.

    They didn't think they would get caught. How stupid is that. And They only had one gun and a pellet gun.

    The younger brother possibly even failed at committing suicide, though he likely tried.


    These guys are like world's dumbest terrorists.

    I laugh at their stupidity, but at the same time, I am happy they were easy to track down.

    They said on the news they were planning to bomb something else, not the Boston Marathon. But they finished the bombs early and decided to blow them up at the marathon instead.

    I didn't hear what their first plan was though.

    Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev admitted to FBI interrogators that he and his brother originally planned their assault as a suicide bombing on the Fourth of July. According to an official, they planned to use pressure-cooker bombs and other homemade explosive devices, but they finished building the bombs early and pushed up the date to Patriots’ Day, April 15. The brothers drove around Boston before settling on the marathon finish line as a target. He also said they watched online videos of radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

    That's why you and I advocate for shutting down the entire military right? Because Nidal Hasan was a U.S. Army major and actually received pay from the us government, my tax dollars, and he was crazy and killed people. It only makes sense right?
    What I want to know is where did anyone suggest such a thing?

    Are we not allowed to be upset to find out that they WERE collecting public services and being supported by OUR taxpayer money, and then they turn around and bomb us? WTH?!

    Sorry for the delay on getting back to you on this. Been busy and what free time I have had, been busy with other stuff. To answer:

    The issue is not what I would call it, but rather what the government should call it. My point in this has been that there is nothing wrong with the government not calling the Fort Hood shootings "terrorism" since by the definitions the government has, it is far from clear that it was. The same holds true for abortion clinic bombings. "terrorism", as defined by the government, is a crime of motivation. Where it differs from other mass killings is in the intent of the person doing the killing. If the government cannot prove that the goal is influencing social or political change, or that the motive was political, which is how the definitions read, then it should not be called terrorism by the government. This includes abortion clinic bombings. In other words, it depends entirely on the motive of the abortion clinic bomber. Some are, some are not.

    What people want to call it is of course and entirely separate matter. Define the term as you want and as long as it is not wildly off from the more standard definitions, I will not argue with you on that definition. But there is a significant difference between people, and the US government. The government needs to operate under what is written as law. It should not be making it up as it goes along, ignoring the law when convenient. Following that law is not somehow being PC, not looking to protect Muslims, or anything else. That is just bull**** perpetrated by people who want to bitch about Obama for anything and everything.

    They don't care about our government or our politics. They care about Islamic fundamentalism.
