    Really? Didn't know that. Well, that's America. I still think that, based on the definition of "murder" as the deliberate killing of another human being, only the man who pulls the trigger is a murderer. His employer is not. A murderer is one who murders. Not one who gets someone else to do the murdering.

    It's a grey area, isn't it? Accomplice or accessory doesn't do justice to their actual involvment. If murderer, mass-murderer or terrorist isbn't accurate enough, what is?

    Eddie Izzard calls him a "genocidal f**khead". That's quite accurate.

    If a criminal gang robs your house, would you prosecute the gang leader or the man you saw hopping out your window with your jewellery in a bag? Seriously. Murderers are people who murder.

    Some kind of crime like "being responsible for murder", only with a snappier name, would fill the gap. Because I'm quite happy to admit that multiple people can be responsible for killing someone. And if someone is beaten to death by a gang, say, or stabbed to death by several dozen Roman senators, I can equally well see that pinning down who actually did the killing is impossible and pretty meaningless; in that situation you'd presumably have to charge them all with attempted murder. But if one person did the deed, and another, or several others, put them up to it, I don't see how you can claim the existence of more than one murderer.

    I'm Jewish, think he's a terrorist but I don't know where my political views lie. Never looked into it. So I don't know which one to vote in. :s:

    Not according to the 'political compass' thing. But I dunno. It's weird. Ask Adam. :p:

    Yeah, it's a very rough guide - that's true. But a guide of sorts!
