Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

"Terrorism" or Terrorism?: A Case of Selective Morality

Published on Sunday, January 29, 2006 by CommonDreams.org

"Terrorism is terrorism, no matter what the motive," said FBI Director Robert Mueller upon announcing a 65-count indictment against eleven environmental activists who were accused of ecoterrorism a week ago. These environmentalists are allegedly part of the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front, groups the FBI has dubbed the most dangerous domestic terrorist organizations in the United States.
 
The Bush administration's sweeping use of the term terrorism is a prime case of selective morality that may help in the prosecution of radical environmentalists but that actually undermines the laudable goal of preventing and curtailing terrorism.
