Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.
-Martin Luther King Jr.


n : the calculated use of violence (or threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear [syn: act of terrorism, terrorist act]

Its easy to see, how under this definition, the Muslim world can see the recent bombings within the borders of our "ally" Pakistan, that killed a large group of civilians, as terrorism.

An unmanned drone hovers over your village and starts dropping bombs that destroy homes and kill women and children because a "suspected" enemy was supposed to be there.

This administration will never learn that the war on terror will be won by the Muslim countries growing wealthy and with that building a middle class with an interest in peace and not through bombing villages.

In other news. Peyton, oh Peyton Manning, oh Tony Dungy, you let the nation down, we were all pulling for you. That was just awful. Steelers 21 Colts 18. It wasn't nearly so close as that.
