"Somebody explain to me how these guys are not equatable to al-quida. I hope the feds clean up on them."
The distinction is that they don't mean to kill humans, at least it seems like that to me. And I'm not going to read all that "how to build and place a bomb" bs on their website to find out.
They want to express opinions which many people, including me, share, in a way that must not be tolerated by anyone. I understand, though, the apparent reasons why they resort to their kind of actions. They don't see any other possibility of constraining companies and people that don't give a thing about the environment*, and given the current US administration and congress, it's not hard to get their point. But again, what
the ELF does is terrorism, albeit not comparable to al-Qaeda.
* Just an example: The CO2
emission of a
4.4i (8 cylinders, 4.4l 286 hp) averages 335 g/km, whereas a
BMW 545i (8 cylinders, 4.4l, 333 hp) averages 264 g/km.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
