    It’s not terrorism when you carpet bomb civilians, as long as you can say that “they” started it and you call it “strategic bombing” instead. When it’s conventional military forces using explosives in an attempt at a psychological impact in the name of national security, then you have a license.

  2. You say:
    “People who have lost relatives to drone strikes…could very well turn to terrorism.”

    Should say:
    “People who have lost relatives to terrorism in the form of drone strikes…could very well turn to their own kinds of terrorism.”

    Oh, yeah. What have Christians of Nigeria done to merit such terrorism visited upon them? The Copts in Egypt have committed how many drone strikes?
    Come on. You know everybody knows this. Everybody. What are you trying to prove by pretending nobody knows this?
    Good heavens.

      Good point. Christians can be victims of terrorism and all sorts of genocide. No question. The Armenians would be another great example.

      On the other hand, there are Christian or pseudo-Christian terrorist organizations. The Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda springs to mind. One could say they’re not very *good* Christians, but that’s really a theological argument. Their commitment to their cause is quite undeniable.

      No religion has the monopoly on terrorism. You don’t even have to be a monotheist to be a terrorist.
