I would have to disagree, ada. I loved you up anyway.

*most* serial killers, pedophiles, etc., live among us.."we thought he was a good neighbor".

But..they have learned to do so by mimicking behavior that they observe to be socially acceptable. No regard for other people, but an artful ability to pretend to.
I dont find that to be a redeeming quality.
It is a devious way to insert themselves in a way that enables them to do those vile, **** up deeds.

"no good qualities whatsoever" ?

Michael Jackson was an amazing song writer, that in my opinion is 'one' good quality; overshadowed by many bad ones.

Roman Polanski was a heck of a film maker, one good quality.

I disagree that they all have "no good qualities whatsoever".

also most women are never portrayed as paedophiles and most of them are acceptable to work with children; teachers, child carers, kindergarten teachers are never usually men?

No, the term terrorist is not subjective.

Terrorist - a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

A terrorist is generally a coward, attacking women and children while refusing to face an armed opponent. There should be no quarter given when encountering a terrorist and they should all be killed on sight, as well as those providing support to their activities.

I agree on that definition of a terrorist but

The term has been used too loosely

So many activists and freedom fighters have been labeled terrorists by the US government. For example, Nelson Mandela was on the terrorism watch list.

Also, that definition describes the United States: she goes into other countries using unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

When the US goes into a country, it uses uniformed military personnel and everyone knows who they are and what their objective is. You may not agree with them being there and you may not agree with the objectives, but you do know who they are.
With islamic terrorists, they sneak into countries under the guise of civilians or refugees. In other words, non combatants. They target non-combatant civilians, including children.
It's easy to claim US soldiers use violence against civilians, because terrorist ARE civilians. Implying those civilians are innocent bystanders is simply a lie. Terrorist organizations are not legitimate military organizations tied to a legitimate country. These civilians you refer to as being targeted, are NOT "innocent" civilians. They are the ones who kill, rape and torture, indiscriminately.
I have no problem with terrorists if they had stayed in their own countries, killing each other, but they didn't do that. They are trying to force a violent religion on the world, and the world has grown tired of it. They tried in in Europe hundreds of years ago. These terrorists need to be exterminated.

Abu Dhabi is a tourist resort. Money talks and they aren't going to tolerate it there. Too much money coming in from the rich. Both of the areas you were, are high tourist areas which tolerate western dress. Do you really think you would have had the same experience if you were in Baghdad?

As to Istanbul, look at the pictures. They speak a million words.

Good and Evil are subjective. There are those who while hiking will come upon a deer. Deep woods. Has never seen a human. It will half timidly drink from a stream allowing you and your kids to watch. Until a 7.62 bullet comes out of nowhere. Blows the deer's head mostly off. But it somehow still runs back into the forest. Probably to its kids so she can tell them to run. The hunters don't have to run. They just follow the stream and pools of blood. Until they find the doe twitching in a ravine. They then at least shoot her again to end the misery. Then "field stripping" They then cut and pull the skin off the deer. They leave the skin to rot and then bring the skinless carcass back home to their walk in freezer. Fresh Venison is best. Though mom was already making steaks from the grocery store. Week after week the freezer burn sets in. They cut out and cook the best parts and feed the rest to their dogs. Evil is subjective.
