Sad day for Germany indeed, but this is _really_ stretching the word "terrorism". Hardly, since deceit is a HUGE part of warfare, read Sun Tzu. The Taliban deceived their enemy (ISAF) and took advantage of an opportunity to inflict damage. Is it terrorism because they were duped? Or because they didn't see him until it was too late? Or perhaps because they weren't ready to fight? How is this different than ISAF bombing from targets 20000ft from the air when the enemy can't see where and what? Or don't know they're being targeted? Or at night? Or goes after Taliban's families? Torture anyone? Comeon! I'm not advocating terrorism, Taliban, etc, just pointing out the hypocrisy. I love how the word "terrorism" is thrown around whenever anything bad happens to NATO forces. When NATO kills it's a "good job" though! Crazy double standards.

Get me in a fist fight and I will throw the first and last punches ( only two in the whole fight then ). the first will stun the second will KO. Show up with a knife, I have to use my gun. Show up with a gun, I stay back and use mine from where I cannot be seen.
Show up with a lawyer and I have to use two bullets.
BTW, I am a member of NRA and Greenpeace.

I was actually there at Puza-I-Shan, the FOB where that German was killed. This is a secure compound where Germans, Afghans and American's live together and work to secure the province. This Afghan walked up without provocation and murdered 3 germans and wounded several others. To compare this with an ISAF bombing is ludicrous and shows how truly little you know about the daily situation on the ground over there in Baghlan
