The US proudly supports terrorism

Yesterday a Hezbollah leader was killed in a car-bombing in Syria. The US's reaction?

The US has said it welcomes the killing of a top Hezbollah commander implicated in numerous bomb attacks and a wave of hostage-taking in Lebanon in the 1980s.

A US state department spokesman said the world would be a "better place" without Imad Mughniyeh, whom he called a "mass murderer and a terrorist".

So, terrorism is bad, unless its directed at people the US doesn't like, in which case its just peachy. And the US wonders why its "war on terror" has no credibility?

(As for Mughniyeh, I agree, he was a mass-murderer and a terrorist. But that just not justify his murder in a terrorist attack. When states stoop to such tactics, or welcome them, they become no better than terrorists themselves)
