No. Division comes before addition and subtraction, so you would divide first then subtract then add.

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.

Serious question.  Racial tensions are at an all time high. Who do you blame?

Racial tensions have always existed in the United States. If we're talking the racial tension between Black and White, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade is at the root.

If you were shipwrecked on an island with a bunch of other survivors what role would you fill?

Depends on how many survivors. If there are enough for the mandatory roles, I would take it upon myself to document everything like the good little journalist I am.

My college was giving out free glasses to the first 100 students. My friend and I got there early but not early enough; they were out. So, we ended up borrowing glasses from two of our old professors. It was kind of awkward.

I disagreed because the word 'terrorist' is subjective. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. So 'bad people' in general is subjective. How can we all agree who a truly bad person is and who is not?

There are Muslims from all walks of life and from different cultures. In my Islamic culture, we court instead of date.
