For John, BLUF: We did take the Revolution to the Motherland, back in 1776.
Thanks to a pointer by a friend, I went to the Blog Standing Well Back, which is about "IED and EOD Evolutions".♠ The most recent post was "An American terrorist in England". This is an appropriate post for the 4th of July, in that it is about a saboteur for the American Colonies, in England, or as we might say today, a "terrorist".
One of the problems with the term terrorist is that one man's terrorist might be another man's patriot.
