  •  sounds like classic definition of terrorism (0+ / 0-)

    The classic definition of terrorism, which is still the proper definition of terrorism, revolves around accomplishing political objectives through the threat or exercise of violence.  

    If an individual did this, we would call a sociopath and the worst kind of criminal, who should be locked up for the rest of their days.  

    If a state does this, alternatively propaganda calls it the highest humanitarian calling or the worst evil, depending on whose state propaganda department is in focus.  

    If a non-state collective actor does this, alternatively propaganda calls them rebels or terrorists, as above.

    The belief and commitment in and to violence as a reasonable form of advocacy, negotiation, diplomacy and conflict-resolution is a malignant cancer that will result in the destruction of this planet if not addressed.
