Quote of the Day

"It’s hard to define because one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist." George H.W. Bush, on supporting the Contras and UNITA.

Hat tip to Libertas and Latte for the quote.

Well, this is true.

Also, the definition of 'terrorist' has been changing quite a bit. I was under the impression a terrorist was a non-gov entity who committed violent acts against non-military/non-gov/non-police targets in order to effect a political change.

Under the current loose definitions of terrorism, any 'resistance' fighter in WW2 who shot a Nazi in the back of the head would have been a terrorist.
