35,000 worldwide convicted for terror

• AP

At least 35,000 people worldwide have been convicted as terrorists in the decade since the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States. But while some bombed hotels or blew up buses, others were put behind bars for waving a political sign or blogging about a protest.

In the first tally ever done of global anti-terror arrests and convictions, The Associated Press documented a surge in prosecutions under new or toughened anti-terror laws, often passed at the urging and with the funding of the West. Before 9/11, just a few hundred people were convicted of terrorism each year.

Get on board. If you do not call the enemies of your nation "terrorists" then you are not up to date.

But what do you call the enemy of all nations? The one who is instructing you to call enemy nations terrorists. Oh yeah. You call it Government.
