Terrorist Group Profiles Index of Groups
Here is the 2003 list of terrorist groups operating globally. Many groups are missing.
Terrorism is 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. - US Federal Bureau of Investigation
The 7 State Sponsors of Terrorism:
Iraq, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Libya, and Sudan. (LOL where is the rest?)
According to the department of state Iran is the leading terrorist state. Here is an excerpt:
"Iran remained the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 2003. It’s Islamic revolutionary guard corps and ministry of intelligence and security
were involved in the planning of and support for terrorist acts and continued to exhort a variety of groups that use terrorism to pursue their goals.
Iran hosted a conference in 2003 on the Palestinian Intifadah, at which an Iranian official suggested that the continued success of the Palestinian
resistance depended on suicide operations.”
What you won't hear is that they were the most active due to ongoing operations in Iraq against coalition forces.
Ayman al-Zawahiri in audiotape aired on al-Jazeera on 1 Oct. 2004: "We must not wait until the American, British, French, Jewish, South Korean,
Hungarian and Polish forces enter Egypt, the Arab peninsula, Yemen and Algeria and then begin the resistance. We should begin the resistance now. The
interests of the Americans, British, Australians, French, Polish, Norwegians, South Koreans and Japanese are everywhere. They all participated in the
occupation of Afghanistan, Iraq and Chechnya, or supplied Israel with the means of subsistence."
Iraq was taken off the list as a state sponsor of Terrorism

GEORGE W. BUSH
Right now Iraq is a hotbed of terrorist activity between borders. Money laundering, weapons, drugs - you name it, it's happening in Iraq and the
Iraqi citizens are going to get in on the action. The only preemption the U.S. can do to contain the borders is to make assaults into Iran just as we
did in Laos and Cambodia back in Vietnam to stop the viet cong and NVA from moving armament and troops through the borders. Just you wait with Bush in
office we will be going to war with Iran or making assaults against them. Make no mistake about it, Iran will do everything in it's power to disrupt
U.S. operations and to keep the heat off themselves while they make nuclear bombs. They are going to be doing massive suicide recruiting and training
in 2005 and alot more people are going to die unless we contain those borders.
