Re: "environmental terrorists"
Terrorism could reasonably be described as causing damage for political goals.
Well, that's a dangerously anti-democratic definition. Are you a member of the Cabinet?
By that, any mostly peaceful protest, becomes terrorism if it affects commerce or some opportunistic lout breaks a window due to the over-stimulation....
Any effect on the economy is already considered damage if the government doesn't think they caused it.
Before you know it, wearing a bad suit outside an expensive fashion emporium is terrorism.
Lets stick to terrorism being causing or threatening loss of life. To prevent plod from extending terrorism to include batty stressed housewives shoplifting sprees.
