    Your D-Day analogy is one of the most foolish statements I've ever read on the internet.
    It's been made very clear to me by many on this forum that any attack, even on military targets, that has a political objective is terrorism.

    D-Day was an attack on military targets, for a political objective, therefore it is terrorism.

    You don't have to be in a standing army to attack a military target without being a terrorist. Are guerillas and insurgents all terrorists? Really? Just because you like the word terrorism, and like to randomly assign it to every bit of street violence, doesn't change the actual definition. I guess every street mugging is terrorism right?

    Your pathetic attempt to insult me is one of the most foolish attempts I've ever read on the internet.

    D-Day was one of the worst terrorist attacks in history, huh?

    And how the HELL do 3 armed soldiers get attacked by one man with a knife, and he still gets away?
    So the bombing of the USS Kohl and the Fort Hood shooting were not terrorism because they were military targets?

    Yes. Fort Hood was an attack on soldiers, the USS Kohl on a navy vessel.

    I simply don't understand the "Everything they do is terrorism, everything we do is war."

    From the article..

    President Francois Hollande said the identity of the attacker was unknown, and warned against jumping to conclusions about the assault .

    The uniformed French soldier was on a group patrol during a national protection programme when he was attacked from behind by a silent assailant, prosecutor Robert Gelli said.

    “There are elements - the sudden violence of the attack - that could lead one to believe there might be a comparison with what happened in London,” interior minister Manuel Valls told France 2 television. “But at this point, honestly, let us be prudent.”
    Prudent indeed. The attacker is unknown and no motive has been announced as yet. Based on this article alone, more information is required before we start calling this a terrorist attack.

    So it's an act of war?
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    P.S. there was bound to be a copy cat attack, more on the way probably.

    Yep..seems a bit farcical that we have virtually stamped out international terrorism..

    Our security is second to none..

    Now we have to watch out for a guy with a knife or machete on our streets..

    The soldier who was hacked to death in London was murdered by 2 Nigerian converts..

    Re: French Soldier stabbed in Paris, Survives

    IIRC the British soldier who was beheaded was alone, this soldier was in a group. Might that make the difference between a stabbing and a beheading?

    Well I certainly hope no Muslims are harmed in the upcoming attacks, because that would be a travesty.
