Terrorism - Theirs and Ours by Noam Chomsky Suppose that Al-Qaeda destroyed half the pharmaceutical supplies in some country where people matter -- say the US, or Israel, etc. Would we regard it as an act of terrorism? They could claim they had no intent to harm anyone, they just thought that the plants were involved in producing biological weapons or components for them. In fact their claim would be vastly more credible than in the case of the [US] Sudan bombing, because their targets would be rich countries where supplies could easily be replenished, domestically and from abroad, unlike the Sudan.
