>From the US journal "Foreign Affairs," Sep/Oct, 1996:
Since 1900, terrorists' motivation, strategy, and weapons
have changed to some extent. The anarchists and the
left-wing terrorist groups that succeeded them, down
through the Red Armies that operated in Germany, Italy,
and Japan in the 1970s, have vanished; if anything, the
initiative has passed to the extreme right.
Governments and media in other countries do not
wish to offend terrorists by calling them terrorists. The
French and British press would not dream of referring to
their countries' native terrorists by any other name but
call terrorists in other nations militants, activists,
national liberation fighters, or even "gun persons."
