    I don't think we should call anything terrorism until we know who did it and why. If Joe Blow puts a pipe bomb under his ex-wife's car because she got it in a nasty divorce and kills 5 people standing nearby, was that terrorism just because it was a bomb? No. If the EFL burns down a new housing complex is that terrorism? Yes. If a pyromaniac does the same thing, is it terrorism? Probably not, it's most likely pathology.
