So When Can We Call It Terrorism?

Victor Davis Hanson provides sobering context for the attack at Fort Hood:
...some 20 other [Islamist] killers [besides Hasan] since 9/11 [who] have shot, stabbed, or run over innocents at malls, airline counters, military facilities, and Jewish-affiliated centers.

We have wondered with incredulity how the elites in the West could have been so silent about the total evil of Stalinism. Are we reliving those times?

I don't think one can argue that his actions were caused by a psychotic rage that was separable from his belief in Islamism.
