Au Contraire--
terrorism, the threat or use of violence, often against the civilian population, to achieve political or social ends, to intimidate opponents, or to publicize grievances. The term dates from the Reign of Terror(1793–94) in the French Revolution but has taken on additional meaning in the 20th cent. Terrorism involves activities such as assassinations, bombings, random killings, and hijackings. Used for ***political***, not military, purposes, and most typically by groups too weak to mount open assaults, it is a modern tool of the alienated, and its psychological impact on the public has increased because of extensive coverage by the media. Political terrorism also may be part of a government campaign to eliminate the opposition, as under Hitler
Mussolini, Stalin and others, or may be part of a revolutionary effort to overthrow a regime.
Terrorist attacks also are now a common tactic in guerrilla warfare.
Governments find attacks by terrorist groups difficult to prevent; international agreements to tighten borders or return terrorists for trial may offer some deterrence.(freedictionary)
Official United States Government Definition of Terrorism
"[An] act of terrorism, means any activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping."
(United States Code Congressional and Administrative News, 98th Congress, Second Session, 1984, Oct. 19, volume 2; par. 3077, 98 STAT. 2707 [West Publishing Co., 1984])

Well, gee wiz, perfessor. You just made your mud a little more clear. Now it REALLY looks like mud. Thanks for that.

You originally used the term Political Terrorism. Now you jump all the way back to the French Revolution and call Terrorism something

* Used for ***political***, not military, purposes.

* Terrorist attacks also are now a common tactic in guerrilla warfare.

Huh?

And now you declare that the young man need not be deported for trial anywhere else. Who said that he should be deported for trial? Deported to where?

You're not making any sense here, Dood.

Stay away from kids and young adults. Please.

I've been reading recent pieces blasting Liberal historians for dumping on Bush(and, to a lesser extent, Reagan and Margaret Thatcher) without their first reading through archives, declassified documents or yet-to-be declassified documents, pouring through interviews or actually interviewing past members of that administration, etc., etc., etc....
Historians(READ: Academia)(READ: Liberal) are no longer neutral, uninterested parties documenting the passing scene but are instead full-fledged Progressive Operatives.
He who controls history controls the future.
The Boy Messiah has legions of liars throughout academia and the media sworn to his evil movement. It is no big surprise when we see such widespread, incredible, disingenuous tripe filling the airways, internet media and social networks.
It is the age of Liberal disinformation gone wild.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Gee. Didn't Obama's namesake(Hussein) attack Kuwait unprovoked? Didn't he kill a million of his own citizens unprovoked? Didn't he attack Iran unprovoked?
You think perhaps that you are very skilled in the propaganda technique of lying by way of selective avoidance of history but you fall flat on your face - both of them, Janus.
First, try not to confuse your wars, Sonny. Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 was not a cause for war by GW Bush in 2003.

Shining Electron: Uh... Uh... Uh...

Well, if you think Hussein killing his own people was justification for launching a war on him in 2003, then why didn't Bush bring that issue before Congress and the American people?

Instead, he conjured up a pack of WMD lies, didn't he?

Shiny Electron: Uh... Uh... Uh...

As for Iraq's attack on Iran, I recall the Reagan administration backed Hussein and sent him bio-chemical weapons.

Shiny Electron: Uh... Uh... Uh...

And aren't you a horse's arse for trying to use Iraq's attack on Iran in 1979 as justification for Bush's declaration of war in 2003? The two events are separated by nearly a generation.

Okay, pressing on, there's this swelling compassion you seem to have with regard to the murdered victims of political tyranny.

So, where was all this compassion by you hypocrites when thousands were being tortured and executed in the Reagan-GHW Bush supported regimes of Chile, Argentina, El Salvador, Brazil and Honduras?

Shining Electron: Uh... Uh... Uh...

And you have no problem with our CIA and miitary using all sorts of torture on people who mostly turn out innocent, correct?

Shining Electron: Uh... Uh... Uh...

You see, Shiny, I don't have to exert myself much to horsewhip you in public. Like Fenrig, all that's necessary is to let you open your mouth and the truth takes care of it for me.

You call it liberal logic, I call it non logic. Clinton did his job. He left his predecessor basically with the blueprint of the foreign policy at that time. Using conservative logic, Clinton should've flown off half cocked like Bush did in Iraq except it would've been Afghanistan. 2nd if the Bush's wouldn't have been doing business with the Bin Laden's, America wouldn't have got caught in the middle. Clinton gave Bush everything he needed to not allow 9/11 to happen. Basically you're saying you wanted Clinton to be the president of the president, but talk wanted him out when he was president. What since does that make?

Oh, please.
Iraq stated in 1995 that it produced a total of only 10 tons of choline from the di-isopropylamine and ethylene oxide and approximately 3 tons of methyl thiophosphonyl dichloride from the phosphorous pentasulphide and methyl phosphonyl chloride. From this, Iraq states that it produced experimental quantities of VX (recently increased to 260 kg from 160 kg). Iraq has recently admitted that three 250-gauge aerial bombs had been filled with VX for experimental purposes.

Iraq claimed that further attempts to produce VX were unsuccessful and the programme was finally abandoned in September 1988. According to Iraq's account, the remaining choline from the 10 tons was burned in early 1988 and the remaining 247 tons of phosphorous pentasulphide was discarded in 1991 by scattering it over an area of land and putting it in pits. Iraq also claimed that 213 tons of di-isopropylamine was destroyed by bombing during the Gulf war. However, while the Commission has found traces of these chemicals at the sites at which Iraq states their destruction occurred, it has not been able to verify the quantities destroyed.

Thus, precursors for the production of at least 200 to 250 tons of VX could not be definitively accounted for.

Iraq also had the capability to produce, at least at laboratory scale, sodium sulphide (Na2S) and thiodiglycol (both for sulphur mustard agent production), methyl benzilate (for BZ production), triethanol amine (for nitrogen-mustard agent production) and potassium bifluoride and ammonium bifluoride (for GB/GF production). In addition, Iraq had the capability to produce the VX precursors choline, methyl thiophosphonyl dichloride (MPS) at the least at pilot-plant scale.
----------
Munitions

Iraq has declared that it weaponized for chemical weapons purposes the following munitions: RPG-7 rocket-propelled grenades and 82mm and 120mm mortar shells exclusively for CS; 130mm and 155mm artillery shells for mustard agent; 250- and 500-gauge aerial bombs for mustard, tabun, sarin and CS; 122mm rockets, R-400 and DB-2 aerial bombs for sarin and mixtures of GB/GF; and Al Hussein missile warheads for sarin. Of these, Iraq acquired the capability to produce all of the aerial bomb types listed and the Al Hussein missile warheads and chemical containers for 122mm rockets. It was reliant on imports of the other empty munitions but had the capability to empty conventional artillery shells and aerial bombs for subsequent refill with chemical-weapons agent.
----------
And just for the record-"rose colored glasses" are pretty ignorant things to rely on when actaully having to face the reality of some of this stuff.....

VX gas is one of the most dangerous chemicals created. It is used in chemical warfare.

VX gas was developed in the Porton Down Chemical Weapons Research Centre, Wiltshire, England in 1952 and its devastating effects were tested. The British traded the technology of VX with the United States of America for information on thermonuclear weapons.

VX has not been used to its fullest potential yet because it is too dangerous to use for local attacks with wind that could blow the VX back onto the base. This factor has helped to keep VX from being used to cripple local nations. If these weapons were launched against a nation then there would be the possibility of a nuclear counterattack because VX is a weapon of mass destruction that spreads from impact point killing all in its path.
