I see a few groups there who I definatly wouldn't classify as "terrorist", how the hell does the CPN(M) qualify? They are a legitimate party thats taking part in the interim government.

While by American criteria those all would qualify as "terrorist", it's also worth noting that by Trotskyite criteria most of them would also qualify as "Stalinist". Just an observation.

The SPN(M) are no longer active participating in peoples' war and their military activities have ceased since the forced return to democracy. Doesn't sound very terrorist to me.

If you ask me, the ones fighting on a blatantly segregationist agenda are petty opportunistic terrorists and the ones fighting on a unifying platform are the revolutionaries...but that's only my opinion.

I think the June 2 Movement was anarchist.

I think you're right but I still think they are worth mentioning.

This is all true, and it will not be too long until the CPN(M) is struck off the list, they actually are de facto off the list as America has been working with them.

I took a class in university that dealt with "terrorism" and "insurgency." As you all probably realize, the US government uses the catchall word "terrorism" to lump its various "enemies" into one camp. For example, in my "textbook" on terrorism, it discussed the following groups: anarchists, communists, "neo-fascists", "Islamists" and "eco-terrorists" (environmentalists who damage property).

I've also heard that the US Senate is currently debating a law that would, among other things, declare the Revolutionary Guards of Iran a "terrorist organization."

The Weathermen are still on there? Christ, they haven't done anything since what? Like, 1975?

EDIT: Oh God, the SLA's on there too. I can only assume this isn't the current list.

You have to understand that the term "terrorist" is entirely subjective. The US government uses the term to refer to any group unfriendly to American interests that encourages militant tactics against the status quo and is not an established government. Because of this, the term actually means very little despite the fact that there is so much stigma attached to it.

Action Directe is considered to be a terrotist group, because it's an alien organization. This group figt for Marxism-Leninism thoughts, Action Directe was forbidden by a decree of August 19th, 1982 pronouncing the dissolution of the organization for terrorist activities but they are still alive.
