Terrorism is, as defined by Merriam-Webster, the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.

Those who murder doctors in churches are terrorists.

Those who murder security guards at U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum are terrorists.

Those, on the far right, far left, far anywhere, who use murder, violence, death, and fear as a means to promote their own twisted agenda are terrorists.

We've had two terrorist acts on our own soil in a matter of days. The shooting deaths of Dr. Tiller, doctor and abortion provider, and Stephen Tyrone Johns, security guard at the Holocaust Museum. The men who committed these murders are terrorists. Those who support their agendas are terrorists. Those who shrug at the news, figure the doctor had it coming or the guard was in the way, they're terrorists, too.

Maybe it's time we stopped placing all of our worry thousands of miles away and looked to the terrorists who share our soil. They're the imminent threat.
