oh and also he is a naked molerat
I think I met him the other day when I went out to eat.
I do believe that the last few incidents of terrorism: flying a plane into an IRS building, killing a security guard in front of the Holocaust Museum, plotting to kill the President, OK. City bombing, the Mad Bomber, the Tylenol bottles, and several others I can think of, were all perpetrated by White Christian look guys. With the exception of the suicide pilot, all were charged, tried, and convicted, and all (those not executed) are now criminals. So it would be safe to say, that those recently apprehended with foreign sounding names will be tried and if convicted be considered criminals.
So why not refer to them as what they are: accused criminals since they share a common behavior with a lot of white US citizen type criminals.
lets not use bad words now
Jerry in VT, all those persos ARE terrorists. They committed an act of violence which was meant to cause fear in the larger masses. In addition you forgot to mention (his name elludes me now) the activist who killed the abortion doctor in the church. That is another one for you list.
to the guy named "bob" about his racial profiling comment:
If a few countries starting from west of Indian subcontinent and between eastern Europe can be shifted somehow to another plane or somethingt, rest of the world can live in peace.
What about Bob? You failed to add your comment there Mr no name.
Everybody is up in the air over the law in Arizona. People want to put their head in the sand about terror on home soil. Is it going to take car bombings in your backyard for you to wake up???? Illegals are killing Americas with cars by drinking and driving. Illegals are killing Americas for gang superiority. You have people that are wanta be terrorists, in your backyard, that want you dead. If you love this country, then DROP the racial profiling. Why don't you just take the guns away from the police and honest citzens and let the ones that hate us kill us all. Then you can let the illegals and the terrorist have it.
H.I. The US Attorney is Preet Bharara , not their attorney
hamada, nah...we would then be able to live in peace, but the rest of the world would just push the little red button and destroy itself for no other reason than to just see what happens when the red buttons are pushed. "Bunch of children you are" :)
Wow no name, anger management dude. I hear it works. :)
And to counter-point you "no name," there have been plenty of caucasian terrorists in the recent past. Read much history?
THE ONE CONSOLATION IS THAT "ISLAM " IS A PEACEFUL RELIGION.
D.Gunderson: religion is in itself peaceful until it is taken too far by fundamental extremists bent on their own agenda. They just mask it in the guise of religion.
