A. It all depends on whether or not you're on the CIA's payroll.
I have another one for you...
Q. How do you spot a Russian spy?
A. They speak perfect English.
Seriously though, by definition:
Freedom Fighter: A person who takes part in a violent struggle to achieve a political goal, especially in order to overthrow their government.
Patriot: A person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
Terrorist: A person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
Interesting definitions, huh? People use these words casually, candidly, but do they ever stop to consider what they really mean when interpreted by the context of any situation?
So does that mean if someone uses ILLEGAL MEANS (Entrapment, Intimidation, Coercion
, etc.) does that make them a terrorist?
Wait? Coercion: co·er·cion
Learn to pronounce
noun: coercion; plural noun: coercions
the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.
synonyms: force, compulsion, constraint, duress, oppression, enforcement
, harassment, intimidation, threats, insistence, demand, arm-twisting, pressure, pressurization, influence

Hmm... but NO cop or agent would ever do anything that wasn't legal. They are better than other humans in that, they swear an oath, just like doctors or lawyers or military! They are held to a higher standard!
I mean, could you imagine if any politicians or high officials ever swore an oath and then swore or knelt down to another? Kneeling before any other leader of another country has ALWAYS BEEN A DECLARATION OF SURRENDER, OBEDIENCE, LOYALTY AND SERVITUDE, since the beginning of time and in war both.
"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, Office, or Title of any kind whatever from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
-US Constitution, Article I, Section 9, Clause 8.
Oh... wait... um... I take that back. I don't think it applies as Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Sr. and Rudy Giuliani were all knighted so... never mind that I brought it up.
Oh well, I'll just leave it with this funny movie quote. Damn these movies they keep making us watch. I swear, I don't know if it's something they put in the popcorn or possible the diet coke? "In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate.
In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue... natural justice.
This is not vengeance.
Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response.
No, not vengeance... punishment."
- Frank Castle / The Punisher (2004)
What better way to make conspiracy theorists or fact checkers look crazy than to cast Jeffrey Tambor in this role. Damn all of you conspiracy types! LOL! :)
