Government officials are cowards, so they try to make themselves feel better by shifting the blame to those who scare them. You don't have to admit you are a coward if you call the other guy a "terrorist" and pretend he possesses superhuman attributes that he uses for evil.
Of course, that just makes the cowards more obvious once you begin to notice them.
I never hear anyone talking about "terrorism" unless they are commenting on something said or done by the "powards" in DC. Real people just don't worry about it. Real people aren't that easily frightened. At least on their own. That's why the cowards with political power have to work so hard to overcome people's natural courage and replace it with cowardice. And, in making that attempt, those cowards become the only real terrorists out there.
And please don't forget.
