Dear Editor: They call them terrorists because the world hates terrorists and that's a bad word. The funny thing is, while Americans are very worried and paranoid about terrorists doing something to harm their country, they're off occupying and destroying whole nations themselves, and leading the world down the path toward destruction.It seems to me that people who kill others without proof of their guilt — or even without being sure who they're killing — are terrorists themselves. They're just highly paid assassins, using high-tech weaponry like the drones in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas. And such people often accuse others of the very things they themselves are guilty of.
