Really, my reasoning behind all of this is to show the complete ambiguity of the term politically and historically. At no point in this thread have I stated, that bin Laden is not guilty of a crime. I call it mass murder. And I'd be completely happy at leaving it with that. My point, is that terrorism, is far too subjective a term and the term alone seems to either incite unneccessary fear or provide a catch all label.
So killing thousands of civillians all over the world to make a point in the name of religion/politics is what....a serial killer, nothing more?
