    Its all about hte religion they follow and their skin color...Tim McVeigh was never called a terrorist, although the attack on the Murrah building was called a terror attack until they caught ole Tim. Same thing with Eric Rudolph and other abortion clinic bomber types...

    I submit to you the DoD definition...

    Terrorism: The calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological.

    Really kind of catches all assaults, attacks, offensives and tomfoolery in there.

    When I used to teach about such things, we would ask students to define terrorism. One day they came up with something along the lines of "Fucked up violent shit laid on the public by small peckered losers with inferiority complexes in search of power..."

    Just did a search for "Austin" on fox news's homepage this morning. No discussion whatsoever of the bomber prick since they found out he's a home schooled Christian whitey type.
