I Know that Halloween is Just Around the Corner but…
I’m not particularly “afraid” because of what happened in Libya. I don’t imagine my way of life changing one bit.
So why are we calling it terrorism? An armed militia stormed a government institution, engaged in a 5 hour battle, damaged buildings, and killed people.
What am I missing that makes that “terrorism”? Are we simply at the point where anything folks we don’t like do qualifies as terrorism?
I’m not being snarky here. I really don’t understand how this fits any traditional definition of “terrorism”.
It was a horrible act, no doubt. Lives were lost. That is terrible.
But it’s not terrorism. Not as far as I understand it.
