    Not everyone in quite a few countries would agree with you. But I do.

    Hmm, I wonder. You know it is said one mans terrorist is another manís freedom fighters and that might apply here. Deaths from terrorist in the U.S. since 9-11 Islamic terrorists would be the right answer. But the correct answer may depend on one political point of view and definition of terrorist. One could say the government, Janet Reno and company being the terrorist that delivered the religious community of Waco their death wishes. Thinking of McVeigh and a few others, perhaps right wing terrorist. Yes, back in the 60ís and 70ís it was most left wing. Arab terrorist come into play with all the plane hijackings of the 70ís and 80ís.

    But since 2000, if the amount of killing people it would have to be Islamic Terrorist worldwide. Muslim Terrorists are active in the U.S., Thailand, Africa, the middle east, letís just say world wide. But again, my terrorist may classify as your freedom fighters and vice versa.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    If they really wanted to, they could label "right-wing extremism" with Islamic terrorism, since it technically is a right-wing thought, but that would also complicate the narrative (unless they wanted to say "terrorism=right wing").

    I was thinking of you when I posted that, Luther, I really was.

    Just be glad you are not an Episcopalian. I certainly do not need to remind you of their proclivities.

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.
    The Black Panthers is not so simple and the Occupy Wallstreet crowd are nothing more than populist and anarchistic protesters.

    Granted, I don't like either (for me the latter are worthless bums), but there's some complications here.

    Occupy Wall Street are unwashed whiners and freeloaders. Not dangerous, but off-putting.

    I was more offended by their lack of politics and appeal to revolutionary rhetoric. They reminded me of everything that was stupid about Henry David Thoreau and William Lloyd Garrison (regardless of potential ideas I could agree with), with hardly any of their upsides.

    I think the problem here is about what the word terror means. AFAIK, acts of terror are meant to strike fear in others which I don't believe that was Nidal Malik Hasan's motive. If he was some other religion or not religious at all what would you call it then?

    Bombing an abortion clinic is terrorism because its meant to cause abortion clinic to shut down. The lynchings of blacks was terrorism as well.

    So? What difference does it make? Any one who looks to point fingers at "this group is a threat cuz of terrorism" is going to live in fear and punish themselves. Let them. Terrorism is not representative of any group. They are aberrations.
