Nowhere *near* as sexy as "terrorist" I'm afraid. Not likely to survive
in the meme pool.
This isn't about fundamentalists only either... a lot of the people in
the world really *do* feel oppressed by American interests. I'm sure
the relatives of the 15,000 (at least) killed in Iraq/Afghanistan don't
feel happy about US policy...
