Terry O’Neill blogs about the next terrorism threat at the Western Standard today. If you tried to guess what it might be–Islamic fundamentalists, North Korean missiles–go crazy and you probably won’t guess this. (This hypothesis comes courtesy of Stephane Dion’s wife, Janine Krieber. Those two are meant for each other.)
Tanya adds: “The real definition of terrorism, she said, is “an action that is bringing terror.”
Terrorism, in her opinion, is relative. If it scares you, it’s terrorism. Even if your fear is unfounded.
Ms. Krieber, the real definition of ‘terrorism’ is a far less subjective, and it goes a little something like this:
The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
Andrea has just realized: Krieber’s take on this makes me into a Counter-Terrorism Expert, which is a somewhat “cooler” title than “pro-lifer” or “pro-life activist.” Bring it on, Janine. I’m with ya.by
