Drugs & Terror


What Is Terrorism?
Whether committed by religious extremists (like al Qaeda), governments (like Iraq or the USA), corporations, or non-governmental political organizations, Terrorism can be defined this way:

The use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological, economic, or political reasons.

Of course; one person's "Terrorism" is another's Liberation Struggle, Crusade, Jihad, or day job. This is not to excuse the terrorist acts of any group, just an effort to "level the playing field" a bit in a situation where one culture (The West, with the USA in the lead position) is attempting to create a world where it defines all of the terms of the game. If we're going to call the use of violence to coerce or intimidate societies or governments "terrorism", then we need to be honest and call "our" violent, coercive acts terrorism too.

Read a brief, incomplete History of US-Sponsored Terrorism Abroad

Kids get plenty of information about the terrible acts of al Qaeda and other overseas terrorist organizations, but most don't get much information about US Government terrorism. Adults can't rely on the corporate-controlled media or the schools supplying Kids with this important information.
Want more information? read Mark Zapezauer's The CIA's Greatest Hits, Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States, or Lies My Teacher told me by James W. Loewen.
Visit a Website that gives information about the US Government's university for terrorists the School of the Americas.

What are Kids thinking about Terrorism? Lets listen in;


I used to think that Terrorism was just something that the "Bad Kids" from the "wrong side of the globe" did, but then a military recruiter came to our school and my friends were all trying to talk me into going for an interview. I went to the library and found out that the US Government has been usiing the military and the inteliigence agencies for terrorism all over the world for a really long time. There was a lot of peer pressure to 'just give it a chance" or try It once to see if I liked it. Parents need to know that there are recruiters at lots of schools and it's really easy for kids to get mixed up with the wrong crowd.

Hey Kids! send us an email with your thoughts!:

and let people know what you're thinking about terrorism.
