Complicated question. What do you consider terrorism? Acts committed by our government against people such as in the Indian Wars could be considered terrorism by modern standards. Would Pearl Harbour be considered terrorism since we weren't at war with the Japanese?

My opinion is that terrorism is somewhat of a modern idea. In medieval times, terrorizing the local population was standard practice in just about any war. Sacking of cities and decimation was common practice.

It doesn't matter as long as we continue to "fight the war on terror" that doesn't have a real enemy or end in sight. We'll just keep losing our rights under the false sense of security until we are completely safe in our loving governments arms, because they will protect us from everything they care so much about us.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I have heard Waco thrown into this category... Could be interpreted either way though.

You could include the Wall Street bombings blamed on communists in the '20's, or the supposed bike messenger bombing of an army recruiting station in NY a few years ago. Beirut, the embassy bombings in Africa, the USS Cole, any Americans kidnapped and beheaded. There are a lot.

Give me a dollar.
