    Is there a fine line that differentiates the meaning of the words, "militant, activist, and terrorist"? Are they all the same according to the government--FBI, Homeland Security?

    What is your take on the definition of these words and how they are being interpreted? Do you have examples that represent each word?

    A Terrorist is a foreigner who fights against the US government anywhere in the world using traditional terrorist tactics. Terrorist are not American. Americans who commit Terrorist-ish crimes are not Terrorist, they are Crazy"..or "Insane". I think your native langauge must not be english also.. to qualify as a terrorist.

    A Militant is a terrorist minus the balls, resources, organization and ruthlessness.

    An Activist is a temporarily disgruntled but usually patriotic citizen looking to bring about some change to the status quo. A small change and a slick marketing campaign is usually enough to dissipate their disgruntananntses..

    Those are my definitions as of now.. As far as the DOHS.. A Terrorist is whoever they say is a Terrorist.. and the same goes for the Activist and Militant. It's worth noting that these terms are not defined with words.. but with action.. with arrests.. with assasinations.. with incarceration.. etc.

    I won't attempt to define each one because I think it's like brother Skuderjames stated, the DOHS lumps all three in the same category and that is the Obama Doctrine in a nutshell.

    Peace

    They are one in the same, they only differ in application. Each one is reserved for different races of people who show their disagreement with any Eurocentri system of civilization.

    Why do you always do this?

    Did you even bother to answer the question raised by sister Destee?

    Please stop posting behind me with your distractions. It's very annoying. I have my own perspective on things based on my own actions.

    As well as you have yours.

    First of all, let Destee speak for herself, and be upfront about what your gripes with me are truly based on...

    Those sort of comebacks are disrespectful by their very nature...

    I give what I expect to get back in return...

    I. e., criticisms are one thing, and I didn't or don't consider you a rival, etc.

    I aired my feelings and thoughts about the elder sister's premise, accept or reject them, and then give it a rest!

    The second word did or does reflect who I was or am striving to be...

    I reject the first and third words as biased labels our peoples enemies did or do resort to, to misrepresent who we truly are...

    FYI...

    If I have any gripe as you call it, it is exactly as I stated.

    And tell you what. Just leave me alone. Here as well as elsewhere. Which means PLEASE no more personal messages outside of here.
