Though one person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter, terrorists do what the name suggests: they seek to strike terror into the hearts of their enemies by killings that blur distinctions between soldiers and civilians. Terrorists are conventionally defined as non-state actors, but they are matched by “state terrorists” states doing the same thing.
If President Bush doesn't help us, these terrorists will damage the U.S. and Europe very soon.ahmad shah massoud
The monument would consist of a Mosque for the worship of the terrorists' monkey-god.mark williams
During the next 10 years about 1.2 billion young 15-to-30-year-olds will be entering the job market and with the means now at our disposal about 300 million will get a job. What will we offer these young, about a billion of them? — or will we leave them to be recruited by criminal leagues and terrorists? ... I think this is one of the greatest challenges if we want to achieve peaceful development and hope for these young.martti ahtisaari
If they only showed this much spunk when it came to containing the terrorists I don't think we would have such a problem.benazir bhutto
Terrorism has no motherland and terrorists have no nationality.karen demirchyan
When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the "blame America first crowd" didn't blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States. But then, they always blame America first. . . . The American people know better.jeane kirkpatrick
Nine-eleven was an act of war. The villains aren’t the terrorists. The villains live in the White House.
Get away from the fear. Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers.Rosie O'Donnell
The important thing here to understand is that the people that are at Guantanamo are bad people. I mean, these are terrorists for the most part.dick cheney
If we’re successful in Iraq, if we can stand up a good representative government in Iraq, that secures the region so that it never again becomes a threat to its neighbors or to the United States, so it’s not pursuing weapons of mass destruction, so that it’s not a safe haven for terrorists, now we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who have had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11.dick cheney
Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.sarah palin
The targeted assassination policy is a correct one. It is inconceivable that terrorists could operate freely without the ground quaking under their feet.amir peretz
A sense of proportion and humanitarian action are not issues for terrorists. Their aim is that of killing and destroying.Boris Yeltsin
The terrorists could be running and hiding in some stores, but all floors now are under our control. There is no room for escape.
Do not imagine that this problem is solely an Iraqi problem because the terrorist front represents a threat to all free countries and free people of the world....Thousands of lives were tragically lost on Sept. 11 when these impostors of Islam reared their ugly head. Thousands more continue to die in Iraq today at the hands of the same terrorists who show complete disregard for human life.
To begin to bring troops home before our commanders tell us we are ready … would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al-Qaeda, risking a humanitarian catastrophe, and allowing the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq and gain control of vast oil resources they could use to fund new attacks on America.
If "terrorist" is really just a catch-all phrase for describing enemies of the state, then restricting targeted killing to terrorists is really no restriction at all – ore, more accurately, it only imposes the onerous restriction of limiting killing to one's enemies.
Detention (preferably after a full-blown criminal trial) is the tactic of choice against suspected terrorists, but it is not always feasible to capture suspected or even self-proclaimed, terrorists or others who pose an immediate and serious danger to a state. Many states have opted, under these circumstances, for a more drastic form of preventative incapacitation, namely, targeted killing.
terrorists bow to the spontaneity of the passionate indignation of intellectuals, who lack the ability or opportunity to connect the revolutionary struggle and the working-class movement into an integral whole. It is difficult indeed for those who have lost their belief, or who have never believed, that this is possible, to find some outlet for their indignation and revolutionary energy other than terror.
terrorists themselves repeatedly and consistently explain and justify their actions by reference to the teachings of Islam particularly to the imperative, deeply embedded within the Islamic tradition, to subjugate all non-Islamic polities under the rule of Islamic Sharia law.
