Nowadays it's pretty subjective.

One of those red-letter days where I agree with the Hugster. 

"Terrorists," my friend, "are what the other side does."

WE, for example, are never terrorists.

Date

The thing is that people generally don't consider acts by a state terrorism. It just doesn't count. I welcome the nit-picking, though, so whatevs. I really, really wouldn't worry about it.

A lady called me a baby killer once, O'Hare Airport.

"Yep, that's me. Got any kids?"

Careful.

That's Min's equivalent of, "Hello sailor!"

Just be glad he didn't wink.

First mistake.  History shows that armies are primarily instruments of terrorism aimed at controlling the population.

It’s just semantics. States commit war crime. Underground organizations or individuals commit terrorism.
