    Personally I think being called a terrorist requires an actual act of terror, particularly when we're talking about a court conviction. I mean, I've never written a book but I really want to. Am I a writer?

    No, that is not what collateral damage means. There is no apparent reason why you are even involved in this discussion with the scant amount of knowledge you have..

    Killing people isn't an act of terror? I beg to differ. He ambushed and killed them in the name of Allah. That is terrorism. Not only that but he had terrorist connections (refer to link) and he was praised by terrorists after the dirty deed.

    My criteria for terrorism doesn't include attacking military targets. Military targets are legitimate targets of war, if there could be said to be such a thing. Yes, he shot civilians, but we bomb civilians sometimes. Hell, we killed tons of them in WW2. It was called "collateral damage." So these particular assholes aren't a state actor. I don't see that as being critical either: they're the enemy. They don't recognize our legitimacy any more than we recognize theirs.
    Your criteria?

    It's not a matter of personal opinion - we define terrorism in the US by certain standards.
    other countries have their own standards that they use.

    It's simple in concept but depends widely on what, exactly, happened.

    I don't know what else you want to hear. It's subjective country to country.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    So if anybody is sentenced to death all they have to say is that they wanted to die and you would not carry out the sentence?

    Why would it matter what he wants or doesn't want?

    Because he wants to be a martyr.

    Don't bother. These guys are happy to do what bin Laden couldn't finish. He played the tune and they are only too happy to dance. Let the war against Islam commence.
