Terrorists or freedom fighters?

Postby alan » Wed Nov 26, 2003 9:22 pm

Good evening everybody,

I am new here, name is Alan. Hope we will get along well.
As a matter of fact, I wanted to know your opinion concerning terrorism and preventive wars (atack on Iraq as such).
Maybe these two concepts have a lot in common?
Who do you think suicide-bombers are, terrorists or "freedom fighters"?

Thanks.
alan
 

there is no clear cut

The concept of both terms is quite hard to explain because it is very subjective. The definition of terrorist and freedom fighter depends on the person who look at both groups. If the person has no clear understanding about the background of the group who creates the terror, he or she might refer to the group as terrorist. However, if the person knows that the group is fighting for their right to get free of oppression, he or she might want to describe the group as freedom fighter. So, the choice is your.

Yep. I agree with suhana :)
You take the point
There are different points of views. I think that people born in Iraq could think the same about us.
Are we terrorists or freedom fighters ?

suicide-bombers ? stupid people without imagination.Idiots who are totally blind. A new incarnation of Hitler and his army. A human mind is easy to manipulate, especially of people who live in their own tight cages.

We need to talk.

Whom do we use violence on?
I think people who do not listen to their opinion, or who used violence on them use violence.
Terrorists are one of them.
They might want to talk about current issues with the government, but the government don't, so they use violence.
They might have family or friends who were injured or killed by some kind of military, so they use violence.
Therefore, to stop terrorism, we have to listen to their opinion, or to stop using violence including preventive wars.
Violence is bad and should not be used.

We need to talk.
