Hes gonna GIT CHEW!

He's gonna GIT CHEW!

Wanted to know what people thought about the abovementioned article….

Very interesting philosophical debate…

Should we as a society treat terrorists any different than we do other kinds of homicide? What makes terrorism any different?

Especially when you look at the statistics for drunken driving, child abuse resulting in death, and world hunger….

Then it gets me thinking.  What IS a terrorist anyways?  Is it a label like “saint” we pass out to any human who’ll do?  Or does it really mean something beyond a person of a particular race/creed who has strong religious opinions?  If we use that definition as “THE” definition of terrorism – then are we so innocent just because we’re American/live in the Western world?
