Default Terrorism

What do you think of it?

Now, I know the word has been dragged through the mud a bit, but we shouldn't let that muddy our view of the concept. Terrorism is a low-cost tactic of engaging in a war against an opponent who is significantly stronger. No country can take a stand against it, because every country has engaged in terrorism at some point. America are the biggest sponsors of state-terrorism by virtue of supplying Israel with billions of dollars to spend on the military there to control the Middle-East. Britain supported the protestant terrorist groups in Northern Ireland.

What does it mean to you?

I agree with your point. I believe terrorism, just like any other concept, is relative. To those who do it or sponsor it, it is not bad, it is not immoral. But to those who bear its blunt, it is pure evil. All governments employ terrorism but appear to be legitimate because they always have the legal infrastructure to back their actions up. It really depends on which side of the debate you belong.
