Charter of uk.current-events.terrorism

(Not Moderated)

This group is for discussion of international terrorism and efforts to combat it. Postings which provide links to news items about the so-called war on terrorism are particularly encouraged. News items concerning UK involvement or helping to elucidate UK perspectives are also specifically encouraged.

Discussion of these news events is also on-topic, particular that which helps encourage understanding of disparate view points. Discussion of policy and background to the events is also on topic, but potential posters are encouraged to carefully consider whether they have anything to say which hasn't been stated many times before.

Posters are reminded that feelings run strong about these issues and are encouraged to discuss matters in a civil manner.

Posters are reminded that the group uk.current-events.n-ireland exists and that discussion which is narrowly focused on Northern Ireland may be better suited there.
