See here's where it all gets a bit loose. You ask 5 different people what their definition of "terrorism" is and you'll probably get 10 different answers. The best, and most fitting IMO, description of terrorism I found comes from a UN General Assembly document (my emphasis):

Quote:
Criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public, a group of persons or particular persons for political purposes are in any circumstance unjustifiable, whatever the considerations of a political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or any other nature that may be invoked to justify them;

So, if there was "forward planning and strategy" and they used knives, would that pass your test?

Edit:

Meanwhile, there was a successful raid in another part of London last night. One shot, six arrested.

Another good job.

Not wanting to speak for VipersGratitude but i read what he said as meaning something like that you've got more chance of dying by selfie than by terrorism so as a motivating force for change it's rather lacking.

That if your goal is to inspire societal or political change then killing less people than selfies probably isn't going to achieve your goal.

Cutting bread is fine. Try walking down the highstreet with one though and the evil authorities will ask what you're up to. Blatant oppression.

More or less this.

I simply can't interpret knife attacks as terrorism. If I were to grab a prehistoric utensil/weapon from the kitchen, go outside and yell "booga booga booga!" it wouldn't be interpreted as terrorism; It would probably be seen as suicide-by-cop. I'm sure not a week goes by that someone doesn't get stabbed in a "domestic", or glassed at the bar. There's nothing inherently terroristic in the act, merely our interpretation of it. If I had instead been yelling that I was stabbing people in the name of Krythumica, the Emperor of the Universe it would meet the UN definition, but it would also be blatantly obvious that any hope of achieving a political purpose is entirely in my head given the ineffectuality of the of the act in achieving such lofty purposes. Had I used anti-matter weapons, however...

Lee Rigby's killers used knives (and a car). Do you not think that was an act of terrorism?

No, just isolated loons with an excuse...

I consider this an act of terrorism:

That's not how it works but you are of course free to categorise things however you want.

I don't suppose gunman rampages qualify either, huh? Tunisia? Charlie Hebdo?

An act must have a realistic expectation of achieving it's goal otherwise it has no political purpose. People continued to, or went back to, work after these knife/car attacks; No one is terrified, because having a heart attack at the wheel of a bin lorry can be equally as deadly.

The only goal is to terrorise a population in the name of a cause. The method used is irrelevant.

But no one in the wider population is terrified...so it's not terrorism. Are you terrified? I'm not.

Again, that's not how it works. It's not about you, or me.

I'm no more or less terrified now than I was after the Bishopsgate IRA bomb from the early 90's (which you pictured above). Does that mean that wasn't a terrorist attack either?

I can guarantee you though that soldiers, especially those based in London, were far more careful after what happened to Lee Rigby. As were workers in the financial district of London after the Bishopsgate bombing.

That's where we differ - I think it's all about us, and or interpretations.

Again, stuff similar to this happens all the time - crimes of passion, road accidents - but aren't labelled as terrorism, the reason being is that they're isolated incidents, rather than part of a coordinated offensive against normal society that inspires fear of subsequent planned attacks. As such, I don't consider them terrorism because they're just as isolated, nonsensical and deadly as accidents or mental perturbation.

EDIT: Although we'll have to pick this up another time. I have some chicken to terrorize.

One or two attacks wouldn't terrify anyone beyond those directly affected, that is why you spread them out in an unpredictable pattern and keep doing attack after attack, basically everyone has a breaking point.
Plus small attacks carried out with little to no organization behind it are far harder to stop as the old infiltration of enemy groups strategy doesn't work properly against it.
And as long as there are narcissists out there who are willing to put their own ideology (or the one of their cult) ahead of the good of society terror in general won't cease to exist.
