“The US government did not even pretend that terrorism had anything to do with its decision as to whether MEK should be de-listed. Instead, they used the carrot of de-listing, and the threat of remaining on the list, to pressure MEK leaders to adhere to US demands to abandon their camp in Iraq. But what does adhering to this US demand have to do with terrorism? Nothing. This list has nothing to do with terrorism. It is simply a way the US rewards those who comply with its dictates and punishes those who refuse. Terrorism, at least in its applied sense, means little other than: violence used by enemies of the US and its allies. Violence used by the US and its allies (including stateless groups) can never be terrorism, no matter how heinous and criminal.”
Green Greenwald, Five lessons from the de-listing of MEK as a terrorist group via The Guardian
Fact is, if the U.S. government developed this Policy-Aspergers that you poseurs are screaming for there wouldn’t be anyone left.
The U.K. is a terrorist state. For real. It runs death squads in Ireland, it’s conducted terrorist bombings of civilians in Ireland and
it used uses it’s position to protect it’s operatives — destroying evidence and the like. This has been going on for almost a century now, and if we rigidly enforce the definition of terrorism we have no choice but to place them way up high on the list.
Iran? They’ve been in bed with Hezbollah for decades. Libya right now is a huge terrorist stomping ground, and under Gaddafi it was… well… a huge terrorist stomping ground. Gaddafi openly preached terrorism and supported terrorists.
In fact, that’s one of the reasons so many radicals were drawn to Libya in the first place. Duh.
Egypt was never innocent as far as the terrorism game goes. Saudi Arabia once held a telethon to support terrorism!
France, well, France once blew up a ship owned by GreenPeace!
And if we expand our list to include those who support terrorists, well, your name gets added. You’re a propagandist for the terrorists. You spread lies and disinformation, you promote hate… as innocent as you like to pretend you are, your hands are not clean.
So, careful what you wish for. If the U.S. government was as rigid in it’s views on terrorists as you assholes demand it would come back to hurt you.
Then again, your type was never very bright…
