6. Over the years, terrorists have become freedom fighters and vice versa.

 

It is a political definition. Kind of like War killing: OK because it is sanctioned by the state. Any other kind of killing: Bad. Not sanctioned or by a state we don't like.

Another I've noticed...if we agree with them, it's OK. If we don't, they are terrorists.

Long been the story. It's how we continue the War Machine...and justify the ginormous sums of money made for a few ... and cost in human and taxpayer capital it destroys. Then we wrap it up in patriotic hoopla, like the icing on a deadly cake.
