I'm going to say what I'm going to say. Take it however you want, but it's the way I feel. Just to show how misguided our concept of what a terrorist is or isn't, I'll use Indonesia as an example.
Indonesia was, by all international standards, a nation of peaceful tolerance among the inhabitants of that nation. All this came to a halt about three years ago when the Asian economic crisis hit. The collapse of the Baht and Rupiah triggered a rapid deterioration between religious and racial relations. The Chinese who held 90% of the wealth fled the nation as they were attacked by angry mobs who went from household to household raping burning down everything they could and raping Chinese women. This of course perpetuated the collapse of the economy which led things to spiral out of control.
During this time, the Achenese were attacking the Javanese government employees in the name of religion. Unreported, and unheeded by influential governments, the Javanese government had stripped the provinces of all natural resources to float their personal programs. In the Moluccas, the Lascar Jihad gains momentum against the Christian majority. 90% of the Muslims there are jobless.
When Megawati Sukarnoputri came into power, the Chinese were assured that they would receive support, but this turned out to be a flat out lie. The first appointment of a Chinese official to a high level position in the cabinet was quickly axed by the temporary president.
In Iran Jaya and Sulawesi, Muslims riot in response the government's deliberate draining of resources from the provinces, and also the "appointment" of Javanese to high government positions and state owned companies. When Suharto relocated Muslims to the outlying regions of this vast nation, local Muslims were displaced. This immediately created pockets of civil war in provinces over jobs and other resources. It's too bad videos of mass slayings and beheadings don't make it to CNN.
East Timor seceded, most of its economic infrastructure torn up, their buildings torched and reduced to rubble when the militia pulled out. As they left, they took with them thousands of "refugees," the most famous was a 13 year old girl claimed as a war prize. She was impregnated by an army General and paraded in front of her family and other United Nations officials who watched from the other side of the border.
The army, police, cabinet, all finance their high life with private businesses. Generals go to war against other generals for control over a lucrative piece of territory. Muslim mercenaries for sale to the highest bidders destroy bars and any place of "sin" just so police can collect their protection money. It doesn't stop there, the courts and government officials, they're all in it.
So who is the terrorist here? By supporting Megawati Sukarnoputri's agenda, is President Bush supporting the opression of a forcibly displaced people? Are those who fight against an obviously corrupt government terrorist? The acts they commit such as firebombing the residences of high ranking government officials could be considered acts of terrorism, and the intent is similiar to that of the ones responsible for the Sep. 11th attack, but IMO, these aren't terrorists.
