    Re: Is Omar Kadaffi a terrorist.

    How are we defining terrorist? Because the United States has killed a lot more civilians in order to protect/project its power than Gadaffi ever has.

    I can't. This is important.

    fwiw I think the lockerbie bombings clearly make him a terrorist.
    It did and we killed his kid and bombed his palace, debt paid perhaps not in full. What we really should have done is declared war and attacked Libya and defeated him in a more complete method.

    That is why I voted no, in one time or another I suppose all countries have been a terrorist in one form or another.

    Now we can add more to the list if we wish to go back in history.
    Under the current definition, we would have to include the United States, and rightfully so.

    I will go long with that also, we have strayed so far from the constitution in regards to war and limited campaigns, we now find ourselves in a perpetual state of war not healthy for any country. If history serves my memory correctly believe this is how Rome eventually fell.
