Say what you want about animal rights, but I happen to think explosives packed with nails are probably the wrong way to achieve your goals. And frankly make one seem like a bit of a psychopathic ass-hat, with a perhaps dangerous protein deficiency to the brain.
Having said that…
This kook is now on the same list of terrorists that planned every major terrorist attack against the U.S. and American soldiers and civilians from the Khobar Towers to 9/11.
Which says something doesn’t it?
Why does terror inflicted by means of ideology warrant greater scrutiny, then say, terror inflicted out of madness or perhaps financial gain?
Terrorists certainly deserve the bigger bulls-eye. If a criminal organization operates to exert political pressure through purposeful violence they need to be taken down. But are all terrorists worthy of sharing the same list?
Or does this “get tough” measure on a leftist extremist have anything to do with the fact that Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano has recently caught some shit for a report that suggested that military veterans could, in a poor economy, be vulnerable to recruitment by racist, right-wing extremists?
Like it or not we’ve now got domestic terrorists on the list. Let’s just hope they’re far and few between.
