Terrorism: Military Tactic by Weak?

Robert Whealey writes: In the case of Iraq, which is part of the Greater Middle East, "terrorism" is simply a military tactic used by the weak, the PLO, Hamas, al Qaida. Terrorism for them is the beginning on an insurgency war. The Bush Administration and the Israeli government since 1967 have used and still use the word "terrorism"  to identify an ideological enemy.  The term "terrorism", never defined legally, becomes a substitute for "communism" "capitalism, "Islam," "fascism" or any other "ism" or faith to exploit the fears of the gullible.

General Robert Gard writes_It's important to remember that the president initially declared war on terrorist organizations with a global reach, which would not have included insurgent organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, who employ terrorist tactics fighting against illegal colonization of the West Bank by Israel.
