Terrorism

Terrorism: Terrorism is the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion. No universally agreed, legally binding, criminal law definition of terrorism currently exists. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or ideological goal, deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians), and are committed by non-government agencies.

Terror: a policy or act intended to intimidate or cause terror, usually for the furtherance of ideological goals

Terrorist: ?

As an American…I wrestle with these words on a daily basis. I try and understand the dictionary definitions that are written above so I can understand the amount of pain and suffering humans cause each other on a day to day basis. I try and understand why exactly this is and has been happening during the brief 30 years I have been alive on this planet. It seems that man has always fought & killed each other over a great number of things. Food, water, land, money…even over other people. I still haven’t quite figured out if this is all we are here for. Is it?

If you notice the definition for Terrorism as well as Terror are both available. Terrorist however is not. I guess this is the question I am sending out to the fellow humans that I share this earth with. Who are the Terrorists? Is it the small handful of extremists that feel the need to fight and kill for even the smallest of reasons? Is it the corrupt governments of the world which continuously back stab each other and murder hundreds of thousands of innocent people in the attempt to end the lives of a few? Are they Muslims, Christians, Americans, Iraqi’s, Afghan’s?  Are they the people of Palestine & Israel?

We are currently dropping bombs on Lybia & involved in a “war on terror” with Afghanistan. We were involved in a “war on terror” with Iraq for over 10 years. We were involved in multiple wars over the past hundred years and because of it the past 100 years were the most bloody in all of man-kinds’ history. If you look back at history you start to see a lot of connections between the past and the present.  Most great historians will tell you that if you pay no attention to the mistakes made in man-kinds history….then you run the risk of making the same mistakes over and over until…..what?  What happens at the end of all this?
