The word "terrorist" has lost all meaning. Who is being "terrorized" here? Do you think the Indian Air Force is?

"militants" would be more appropriate?
>>
>>13228

Militants works. Non-ideological and accurate.

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. It's cliche but sadly still true.

in the interest of trying to be impartial, the word "Terrorist" isn't exactly useful. no one knows what their goal was. why would terrorists attack the air force? were these terrorists associated with anyone? what kind of attack was it?
there's no details being given, they're just being called "terrorists" for editorial reasons. there's good reasons not to jump the gun.

>they're just being called "terrorists" for editorial reasons.
It apparently happens quite often.

I don't think that's exactly how the phrase goes... Terrorists have a specific set of methods, and they almost all involve attacking "soft" targets. that is, civilians. they don't have the firepower or numbers to attack their actual enemies, so they slaughter innocents to make the civilians enforce whatever change they want.

Rebels blow up military, government, and police buildings. Terrorists blow up schools and night clubs

My point is that 30 years ago what they call "Terrorists" today would have just been called "mad bombers". The word "terrorist" has become a catch all word for anyone who attacks another nation.

Do you feel terrorized? I don't.
>>
The only terrorists are the governments and the stupid people who follow them.
>>
>>13430

Hardly the only ones but certainly a modern government, or rather a modern elite, is indistinguishable from terrorists who made it.
>>
>>13270

Depends on how you define "terrorist". Me I'd say, terrorism is a method, freedom (national independence or what have you) is a goal. No reason why one can't be a freedom terrorist.
>>
>>13226

I'd call them guerrilas personally.

Indo-Pak were going to start dialogue after a freeze. Terrorists attack every time this happens. Since Pak's govt and agencies are proven to have official links to terrorism, this is supposed to send Indian media and people into frenzy to call off talks until Pak assures end to terror.

The usual tactic is to attack somewhere close to the border in the economically better-off state of Punjab which isn't used to such attacks like JnK. A police station near the border was attacked a few months back for similar reasons.
