    LOL. If you shoot someone in the face for hate, racism, or money, it's just murder. If you do it for religious reasons it's terrorism. Interesting definition you made up there.

    No. to further simplify,

    if you shoot someone in the face, assuming of course you are doing so outside of justifiable conditions such as self defense, then doing so for hate is murder.

    Doing so because for racism would be murder, but might also be terrorism if the goal were to advance an ideology and inspire fear in members of a racial minority.

    Doing so for money, would be murder, but might also be aggravated armed robbery, organized crime, murder for hire, or a botched police raid.

    You see? Once one gains proficiency with the language and a minimal understanding of social-political issues, one finds that categorization of offenses to be a fairly simple occupation in most instances.

    They're supposed to do a pretty nasty job on human bodies, the goal of which is often to compel Traditional Islamists to eschew savagery. Didn't you know that?

    Savage is the damage done. Basically you are being savage to discourage savagery which actually doesn't work. The only thing drones allow is the disconnect from the savagery from the person doing it.

    Oh yeah, because part of all of our jobs in life is to carry around weapons to shoot at the crazies. Yeah, that won't lead to any more problems. Why don't we just give people grenades and drones....oh forget it i know where this is going with you.

    Reactive barbarity is not synonymous with causative savagery, and should never be morally equated with it.

    When will these terror attacks by common Americans stop?
    When did you stop beating your wife?
    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.

    yeah, because that would make it really inconvenient for the reactive barbarian to justify his actions. They are both related by the fact you call one reactive to the other. try a better argument next time. perhaps one you have not contradicted.

    Ah this thread proves once again there is nothing so open minded as stupid you can't fix.

I think it is obvious why I respect police despite some of their less respectable members and actions, and really don't care about the wannabe heroes who think having a gun makes them Wyatt Earp.

    So allow me to mimic. As always it is a predictable list of open minded deep thinkers that are spouting the morning cup of stereotypical idiocy. They all seem to be folks that never let a fact get in the way of the same screeds they always spout at DP. Likewise they always seem to be associated with super stupid left wing non thinking. WOW! Man this if fun. And easy. Next topic?
