Listen, I get it. I know the difference. The point I was making is that sharpshooting my original post (which specifically said there was a difference in motivation but not necessarily in how they're carried out) by using a cut-and-paste "definition" (of which there are over 100...all of them fairly loose) was ridiculous. Many different scenarios and some incidents that have already happened could be made to fit under one of the 100's of definitions of terrorism.
None of which is the purpose of the thread, so I won't further hijack the thread by debating this point.
