Article from WSJ, If it isn't Terrorism, What is it?
"So why are so many prominent Western media reluctant to call the perpetrators terrorists? Why did Jon Snow, one of Britain's most respected TV journalists, use the word "practitioners" when referring to the Mumbai terrorists? Was he perhaps confusing them with doctors?"
Some Blame the US, what are your thoughts?
US offered military support, India declined. What else ( if anything), should the US do, in your opinion?

I think it is clearly terrorism, by the definition from the FBI (The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a Government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.)
For them to torture the Jewish Chabad members before they killed them, even further defines as terrorism, to me. I don't follow the BBC well enough, but this article struck a chord with me.
I don't think the US should do anything right now. Except to share information we have on anyone involved with India's investigators.
