    Is "Anonymous" a Terrorist Organization?

    Anonymous has declared war.

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...overnment.html

    In their statement, they say they have been classified as a terrorist organization (I don't know if they have been or not). I see terrorism as involving physical violence toward people or property. What do you think? In your opinion, are they a terrorist organization?

    When the majority of property is imaginary, crimes against imaginary property are serious business.

    they clearly want to be labeled thay way, to get attention and play the victim.

    meanwhile, they're too stupid to call it "NDAA 2012".

    Re: Is "Anonymous" a Terrorist Organization?

    From free dictionary:
    Noun 1. terrorist organization - a political movement that uses terror as a weapon to achieve its goals
    foreign terrorist organization, FTO, terrorist group
    act of terrorism, terrorism, terrorist act - the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear
    I don't know if you can consider hacking as "violent" but their actions can certainly be detrimental. Stealing private data associated with private citizen identities and using that information to coerce or create a message, or spreading that information publically can be incredibly harmful. Taking down government websites can affect security, the electric grid, satellites, etc., etc., etc....assuming they're skilled enough to get past the high level security.

    I'm not quite sure, to be honest. If nothing else I'd call them a menace and a threat to private citizens. It seems all too often that anonymous' actions directly harm "innocent" bystanders. Personally, I have no interest in being a sideline "victim" of "war" with these people. If my credit information, checking information, or identifying documents are released to the public I expect anybody found to have had a hand in that action to be punished to the fullest extent of the law...and I'll sue their cowardly asses in civil court, too.

    By declaring war they're issuing a threat of violence. If they follow through on that declaration then they're treasonous little snots and behaving in a manner similar to terrorists. Either way they'll get what's coming to them.

    I think that to describe them as terrorists attributes to them a much greater level of intelligence and direction than I see any reason to suppose that they have.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Anybody who seeks to purposely destabilize or destroy the US government and its leadership is a terrorist. If they are American citizens, they are traitors and terrorists. If they are foreign citizens, they're toast.
