    If firefighters fight fire and crime fighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters fight?

    I dont think you have to read minds to answer the question -- all you really need is the stated objective of the terrorist and the impetus behind same.

    Right.. No one has claimed otherwise. It all depends on where you are standing. Palestinian suicide bombers are freedom fighters to their people. They are terrorists to the Israelis.

    What I'm trying to say is.

    I have no idea. I am estimating that there is a larger majority that sees America as the terrorist nation in the War on Terrorism.. but I cannot even begin to produce any sort of real numbers here.
