Yeah I read that. What's the definition of terrorism again - to instill fear, panic and mistrust in the government for political purposes, or to further a cause? Must have gotten lost in translation.

A kid blowing up your mailbox with an M80 is criminal mischief. This is Muslim separatists or the UDD (Red Shirts) making a statement.

ETA: taken right out of the Obama playbook. Multiple IEDs remotely detonated in five cities miles apart in a coordinated attack on a significant day/weekend and it's - local sabotage (aka workplace violence)
