Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Probably some basic questions should be asked about the nature of the 'violence' being discussed. Does it involve harm to person or to property?

No, no, the basic question is "is this terrorism"?

You see, if you kill someone because you're a criminally reckless fucktard who drinks and drives, there isn't a political motive and so you get 10 years. If you deface some property to send a political message, you get 20 years.

The conclusion is that "terrorism" is code for thought crimes, and "anti-terrorism" a code for thought police.

Bush is a symptom, not the disease.
