Label bombers for what they are – cowards

Thank God, President Obama was careful with his wording after the bombing of innocent people at the Boston Marathon. He did not use the term “terrorism.” So here is a new word to use for those who would purposefully kill and maim innocent people regardless of where they are in the world – coward.

The term “terrorist” has apparently become a badge of honor for those who plot against a free society. So let’s all start calling them what they really are, cowards. Perhaps the use of the terms “cowardly acts by cowardly people” might take some of the self-aggrandizing glamour away from these groups and individuals. It’s time for political correctness to take a back seat to truth.
