I mean, come on... Son Of Sam... Ted Bundy, hell even The Green River Killer? I can only look at two names on that list you posted and even they are questionable to be labeled "Terrorists"
NYC-I was downtown on my way to work...scared to death because had no clue what was going on.
Anthrax--ever open your mail outside,with latex gloves on and a hospital mask on?
I did....not alot of fun.....
Son Of Sam "terrorized" the City of New York for a whole summer,I was a kid and we couldn't go outside past a certain time.People were scared and it was because you didn't know..who was next.
So....I've lived through three acts of terror (ism) and also served during the Gulf War I......anything that will strike fear in your heart is the main goal.
Doesn't matter the catergory as long as it accomplishes it's goal...FEAR!
Terrorize-fill with terror;coerce by threat or violence
Terroism-systematic covert warfare to produce terror for political coercion
