    I don't necessarily consider terrorism "uniquely" awful compared to war or other acts of violence, though I do think it is more jarring when terrorism (or any acts of large scale violence, whether it is to some end or not - political or apolitical) happen in a setting that is blatantly 'unexpected' or should not be expected. In a 'warzone' (hard to tell what is sometimes these days), you expect some degree of atrocity. At a sporting event, one does not. Theoretically.

    The motive behind violence does not make it uniquely awful to me. Terrorism seems to be, however you want to whittle it down, about motive.
