    [font=Times New Roman, Times, serif]If a government systematically attacks civilians, the government is no less culpable than private cabals that blow up planes, buses, or cafés. By this standard, the Indonesian invasion of East Timor was as much a terrorist action as the bombings of Bali nightclubs in October 2002 that killed hundreds of civilians. [/font]
    [font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][​IMG]The U.S. terrorism definition is the key to the Bush administration claim that the war on terrorism is automatically a war for freedom. Without the “state-exempt†concept of terrorism, fighting terrorism would, in most parts of the world, have little or nothing to do with defending freedom. With an honest definition of terrorism, many governments in the Bush “freedom-loving coalition†are guilty of inflicting more terrorism than they prevent. [/font]

    [font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][​IMG]Having a “state action†exemption to the concept of terrorism is like having a “mass murder exemption†in the homicide statute. Any action carried out by private citizens that would be considered terrorism should also be considered terrorism if carried out by government agents. The United States should recognize that its bankrolling and support of governments that terrorize their own people make a mockery of Bush's promise to rid the world of evil. [/font]

    Good comeback, Turd.
    Are you unaware that the US backed Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war. They also fund Pakistan, whose torture units of the military are infamous. Do you not think Isreal engages in torture? How about these counttries' enemies? How do you think they view a country that engages in torture on enemy combatants or "terrorists, as you call them? Remember all the outrage the US had toward the Japanese and Germans for their torture practice after WWII. The use of torture was considered weak and abhorrent by Americans once, because we could win any war by fighting harder and being more comitted to the cause. When you have to torture to win, you are no better than the other side who does the same.
