When Terrorism Isn't Terrorism

Sphere: Related Content

It's downright Orwellian that the actions of Army officer Nidal Malik Hasan are not called terrorism by any Democrats. The definition of terrorism according to is as follows:

ter·ror·ism (těr'ə-rĭz'əm)
n. The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
Hasan killed 14 people in cold blood and the daily revelations emerging show that he did it for ideological reasons--the supposed war against his fellow Muslims (and potentially in conjunction with radical elements). That by the definition above is pure and simple terrorism.

Of course, we all know that Obama won't call it terrorism because he would be admitting that we were attacked again after 8-years of George W. Bush stopping another one after 9/11. Obama's essentially putting his hands over his ears and screaming loudly so he can't hear the mean people saying bad things and can right on ignoring what the country knows. He's voting "present"...again.

We are still in a war that all the hopey-changiness will not stop. Many Muslims wish us dead or submissive; a pretty simple concept. Instead of Democrats and Liberals worrying about a backlash that won't happen, perhaps they should do what the country elected them to do and that's protect us from acts of fundamentalist terror from loosely connected Muslim elements.

Instead their policies have neutered us to the point that a guy with the abbreviation for Soldier of Allah actually had it on his Army business card and no one wanted to offend his sensibilities and be un-PC and report this little fact. Lord help us over the next 3+ years; I hopee we make it.
