Too late


In the April 26 edition of the Mountain Democrat, a reader asked us not to “rush to judgement” about the two terrorists who killed four innocent civilians and wounded over 170 others. Well, I am afraid that it is too late for me, for the families of those killed or maimed, and for 99 percent of Americans who live in “the real world” of “seeing is believing.”

The calculated use of violence against civilians as a motive to attain a political, religious or ideological goal is terrorism pure and simple. No amount of equivocating as to the motive or goal will ever identify the bombings as nothing more than terrorism and those perpetrating that calculated violence will ever be identified as nothing more than terrorists.
