49. K&R, but they may be right!
Edited on Mon Aug-29-11 05:30 PM by PurgedVoter
Would a terrorist attack that was anticipated, desired and enabled really count as a terrorist attack? If such an attack were just using some outsiders to help manufacture consent then it hardly counts as a real terrorist attack.

Conservative leaders have a long tradition of being allowed to terrorize their constituents and not have it called terrorism. The use of torture is quite ineffective at winning hearts and gaining information, but it is great for striking terror in the hearts of relatives. Remember that the acts of the KKK are still not considered domestic terrorism. Conservatives are generally allowed to claim higher ethic, while showing no ethic at all.

If you get to define that the acts of American Conservatives are never terrorism, while you get to call unions terrorist organizations, then you get to say anything you want and how dare terrorists disagree with you, as long as you are a conservative.
