    If there are different kinds of terrorism, that's news to me. Where did you get these classifications?

    Its domestic then.
    One of them yes, one of them no, though the other one was here legally.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I would file this under Domestic terrorism. They have been long enough...went to our schools...and were from what i could tell...citizens.

    From my understanding they were both citizens of this country...

    Re: What kind of terrorism was the Boston Marathon bombing?

    At this point we don't know. It isn't all that important to label them as terrorists. They were murderers. That should be sufficient enough. Labeling them as terrorist actually gives SOME legitimacy in their claims (all groups can then say they are freedom fighters/political extremists blah blah). Calling them what they are...murderers...undermines their cause. Look at the IRA. A possible legitimate gripe against the UK government became a cause for thugs and murderers.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
