Syfy (ended 2010)
|The ending was a copout as always and anybody could see it a mile away as Adama never follows through with his promises. However, interesting points being pointed out. |
|It’s hilarious that Madame President called them Sesha’s crew “terrorists” when in fact they really weren’t, at least Adama saw where she was coming for a brief second.|
Err, this statement is wrong, she was the definition of a terrorist. She was threatening the use of unlawful violence against the hostages with the intention of coercing the military to capitulate to her demands. Sound like a terrorist to me.
. . .I don’t know about Billy dying a hero,
in my opinion he committed suicide. His actions clearly would not have made a difference since [the] rescue team was already boarding . . .
|Terrorist: one who engages in terrorism |
Terrorism (n): The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
You don't have to intend to kill people to be a terrorist. If you play with fire, your going to get burned.
Aye and harboring a terrorist for your own agenda would also be considered an act of terrorism particulary
if you quite don't know if that terrorist is feeding you good or bad information.
| In this scenario, the group wanted to bring a known criminal whose engaged in conspiring |
with an enemy that has to the deaths of thousands of people to be brought to justice. No one would
consider that a terrorist action, one would consider that a radical action.
|The use of hostages of however, blurs that line from a radical to a terrorist action.|
| The line is further blurred when one |
government or military group harbors a terrorist.
That’s why I say it’s a thin line, you can really
condemn one group when your own group does the same thing.
