I'm sorry, but I do not agree with the writer of this article. In my opinion, her brother IS a "terrorist". I believe anyone who uses destructive or violent means to effect change, even if it is for a noble cause, is a terrorist. Yes, I agree that it's not a "classic" case, but it reminds me of the people who blow up abortion clinics. What if someone had remained in the building without him knowing. It is entirely possible that it could've happened. Then what? Someone would be dead. No matter what, it is seriously wrong, and I feel that the writer is trying to minimize her brother's actions by saying it's JUST property. I don't think she can be objective in this case because he is her brother.

The use of violence or threat of violence to effect political change is terrorism. Dictionary definition.Principle first personality second.

Maybe the act was an act of terrorism, but does that really make him a terrorist? The kid sounds white and Christian to me, how can he be a terrorist. The only terrorists I know have beards and wear turbons on their heads. I think that most of them work for 711. Is 711 a terrorist organization? Maybe that's where Osama gets all of his money, all he would need is to get 10% of all hot dog sales and he would be loaded. There's some thought for food.

All Americans are "terrorists," in the eyes of the world.
