Terrorism is just not senseless jihadi violence directed against government targets and civilians. There is no universal definition of terrorism as of yet. The passage of time has created an amorphrous definition of terrorism. Terrorism can also be found in religious, social, political, cultural and economic spheres. Not all terrorism leads to loss of life - terrorism also instills fear.

Is this not a form of terrorism?

1. An elite military unit under government order to 'remove' a known subversive from a sovereign country.
2. A military power over powering a small nation over supposed infractions - but more to impose dominion in the region.
3. The Cultural Revolution.
4. Rwanda? Dafur? Gaza?
5. What George Soros did in 1997.
6. The Crusades.

Critical views are welcomed.
