It’s about time that we discarded “political correctness” and defined our enemy. This enemy is radical Islamo-fascism, which uses terrorism to achieve its goals.
My understanding is that terrorism is the threat of and/or the perpetration of violence indiscriminately against noncombatants for political gain. This may be by groups or individuals.
The shooter at Camp Hood clearly fits this perception. He was influenced by at least one radical imam and used a fundamentalist-extremist view of the Koran to pursue his vicious (traitorous) intent. He obviously planned his attack.
If we fail to define the enemy, we cannot defend ourselves.
I do not mean this to be an attack on Islam but rather on the minority of radicals who are trying to destroy us.
