Terrorism is the use of threat or violence to scare governments into changing their policies. A terrorist can be an individual or a member of an organization. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, are examples of acts of terrorism.So, does that mean the U.S. is a terrorist nation? Doesn't Washington use threat or violence to scare governments into changing their policies?
The word "terrorism" first appeared in France (terrorisme) in 1795.
Talk to your parents or teachers if you have questions about this type of emergency.
Maybe it's time for the government to just leave our kids alone. Life can be confusing enough as it is.
