[A]ccording to Newsweek's Managing Editor, only a foreigner who "protests the American government" can be a Terrorist. Americans cannot be. Indeed, according to her, "all foreign individuals bombing/shooting to protest American government" are "Terrorists," which presumably includes Muslims who fight against American armies invading their countries (which is how the U.S. Government uses the term, too). Meanwhile, Leftist Americans who engage in violence are "radicals," while those on the Right who do so are merely "protesters, survivalists, and separatists." Only anti-American foreigners can be Terrorists. That's really what she said.
Its been noted here that newbies sometimes get a rough treatment. Here is one response, written by Old Dog, that might help those thinking of making their first post understand a little bit about this place. After you read this take a moment (or two or three) and look around and get a sense of this place. If you're still interested make your intro and join the fray. —Jed
