We Are All Terrorists Now

In yet another sad example of how Bush's "War On Ahem!" is being misrepresented and abused worldwide as an excuse for state oppression, Russia wants the UN to redefine terrorism so that anyone who fights to reclaim seized land - including Chechens and Palestinians - will be officially classified as "terrorists".

This would mean that the resistance movement in East Timor, for example, would have been classified as a terrorist group and could have expected military opposition from UN-backed forces. Let's remember that Nelson Mandela's ANC was officially considered a terrorist group.
