Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Does that make Ollie North a terrorist too?... Oh, it doesn't?... He's a "protector of democracy"?.. Sorry for even asking.

I'm sick of the right and left wingers who constantly make all kinds of true allegations against each other, but forget to mention their own hypocricy.

When those of you are ready to admit that "collateral damage" is terrorism just the same as the 9/11 and the Intifada, then I'll have some respect for you.
