in response to reader comment: What is Terrorism ? A guide for the misguided

"Yet, regardless of how many the US kills it is not terrorism!"

Exactly. You at least can admit accurate data. It is not called terrorism when we attack - it is called warfare. We are engaged in asymetrical warfare with an enemy without border or origin. Brave "mujahadeen" get to see the fruits of their labor. Continued attacks upon western civilization by untargetable enemies will result in continued attacks upon Dar Al Salaam as a whole.

"She [USA] delivers terror en masse and killing civilians indiscriminately because bombs by their nature are indiscriminate, it becomes more indiscriminate with the increases with the power of the bomb."

The same can be said for the fact that recently - very few US soldiers have been killed. The "mujahadeen" have indescriminantly slaughtered hundreds of their own. Dare I mention shaped charges being used? The Islamic terrorists are becoming more indescriminate witht he increases in the power of their weapons as well.

"But those who retaliate with the puny RPGs or Semtex are considered terrorists, only because of their identity, no relationship with the number of victims or the level of terror delivered. So my point is proven."

Sorry, your point is pointless. We are in Dar Al Salaam with boots on the ground because this nation has had enough sneak attacks. Barraks in Lebanon, Bombings in Africa, USS Cole, World Trade Center Attack #1, #2, Madrid, London. We are in your nations to humiliate and degrade your lives until you back off or are destroyed. Adherants of the faith of Islam began this war this time. Since Islam will not know universal peace until Dar Al Harb is either destroyed or destroys Islam, militant Islam doesn't give us much choice but to keep boots on the ground for good. If you don't like it, leave Dar Al Harb in peace and people like me won't have to get wet.

"consuming much larger number of victims" as you put it seems to be a specialty among Islamic Terrorists around the world. If the US can consume a much larger number of victims in the middle east then maybe that will be a lesson to Islamic Muslim Terrorists and their supporters around the world. Murder our unarmed, innocent American civilians, family and friends and we'll be paying sand lot an extended visit.
