One of the most popular words in the news these days is "terrorism." I suggest that we as U.S. citizens don't really know what terrorism is, if experience is our teacher.

The Yemenies who are still living have a better idea. A year ago, Oct. 10, 2016, two U.S.-built bombers carrying U.S.-made bombs blew up a funeral in Yemen. After this unprovoked attack the bombers withdrew out of sight, and when the first respondents had come in to save the wounded, the bombers made another run dropping the second load of U.S.-made bombs. Then they were refueled by the U.S. Air Force. (In U.S. military jargon this is called "second tap"). If I were there I think I would be "terrorized" by now.

Anybody seen any North Korean aircraft carriers off our beach lately? The North Koreans don't have any, but we have about a dozen. They are called "defense forces." They are not defending our shores. If you were on the beach of North Korea you could see them about 12 miles off shore. They are not just one ship. They are "Carrier Task Forces" (Each "ungodly" "Mother Ship" has about 20 or so supply ships and destroyers, loaded with enough nukes to destroy half a continent).

Are the Koreans terrorized yet? We should be.
