    As someone already mentioned, not only is their grouping questionable and suggestive, but we don't even know how they are defining things like "right wing", "islamic extremism", and "terrorist attack". It would also be misleading to say that .01% of the population being responsible for 15% of attacks, is a group that is less dangerous than one representing 35% of the population and being responsible for 23% of such attacks.

Many later were hired as Liberal college professors so they could influence decent young people who didn't know any better. Occupy Wall Street. Who was this ahole last week who attacked the Family Research Council because the detestable Southern Poverty Law Center told him they were against homosexuals.

    Left Wing Terror is endless and always lauded by the braying loons.
    Ahhh, someone else who was there. The conservatives were known as 'the silent majority.'

    That's a long list, going all the way back to 1837. It really should go back further to the terrorist attacks early colonists endured from the natives, and vice-versa.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: Who is responsible for the most terrorist attacks in the US?

    Well, I don't really know how serious I was but since we've engaged, why don't you point out how wrong I am with some examples as to why a country with bases in 140 countries, spy satellites, drones, Special Forces, CIAs, DIAs, NSAs, 2800 nuclear weapons carrying on covert operations on every continent etc. isn't to be viewed as terrifying or terrorizing.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm glad to be an American and have all this weaponry supporting my safety but if I can have an out of body spiritual overview, we don't seem very nice, do we?

    Dastardly, nasty, ickypoo right wingers!

    It's nice when we all agree.
    Capricorns, no doubt. Wait. Maybe it's unicorns!

    Terrorism is a method. It has nothing to do with military prowess.

    We're extremely nice. If we weren't then the world would be a very different place.
