    Someone seems to be furious.

    That thread was only one of the reasons, really.

    Re: Terrorism

    All of the acts mentioned could be acts of terrorism, but they are not always so. This is why I voted 'other'.

    In general, terrorism is the effort to create 'terror' or fear in a civilian population that is opposed to your own agenda. It is for this reason that I do not generally consider any attacks on military targets to be terrorism. I would be much more likely to consider these to be acts of war, and whatever organization that perpetrated the acts to be inviting war from the government controlling their target.

    Just answering where you appear not to have had the guts to. You opened this thread when you were making the allegation that the children who are given a minor mention at the bottom of the above article but full mention without any of the background in the article you produced.

    Was it not a bit dishonest not to suggest stone throwing school children as another choice for the definition of terrorism as that was the one you have been declaring for the past 3 days.

    Now I have better things to do. I am done with you.

    Wrong as usual alexa, this thread was opened to gather and understand different views by different posters on the definition of terrorism by stating 4 designed sentences and asking the poster how he perceives the action in each of the sentences.

    As I already said, the thread you're referring to was only one of the reasons.
    That you wish to make it into your personal grudge against me for pointing out the insane immorality that exists in your political positions is understandable, but beyond that I do not see a need nor a reason to respond to your continued allegations.

    Now you are free to do as you say, walk away.

    Yes because its meant to deliver a message to the ruling regime that if you dont change, more innocent people will die.

    Your signature is naive and pretentious. Remove the line "Death to....". Its very uncivil and displays clear lack of knowledge.

    Re: Terrorism

    To me, terrorism must accompany the political message that, "We did this because you are doing something we are against. If you don't stop doing it, we will continue to bring harm upon you and anyone associated with you."

    And, legally speaking, it is out of the confines of declared war, although in my personal view war is also terrorizing to non-combatants that suffer under it.

    So if I understand your position correctly, you believe that terrorism is an attack on non-combatants that is motivated by political causes?
