it's in the news. they took over a national wildlife refuge. they say they're protesting the fact that two local men are being sent back to prison for arson. they want the government to turn over the land so they can use if for ranching and mining. they have said they will use violence if the police try to remove them.
what's all going on there
If we accept the defininition of terrorism as "the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims" then they clearly meet that defininition.
they took over a federal building and are holding it and threatening to use violence to reach their political ends. they are domestic terrorists.
