Now lets look at the scenarios from Friday that we didn’t get a chance to discuss and take a before and after vote. I am curious to see how many of you consider each of these acts terrorism and for what reason. After you verbally state your opinion I will tell where these events actually took place and we will vote again. I will be curious to see if you stand by your judgement of an act when you find out what group(s) or countries were involved. If you changed your vote I would be curious to know why.
