Everyone is a hero to someone and a villain to someone else. Suicide bombers in the Middle East are Islamic heroes, said to be praised and honored in the afterlife. But to us, they're just kamikaze ****heads trying to kill innocent people. Just like the old saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure."
Peaceful human beings are the hero. Monsters that blow up marketplaces are the villains whether it's in Pakistan, Iraq, London, Tokyo, or Boston. Terrorism is a villain to humanity.
