Bush took them off the list, and now Trump put them back on because they have assassinated people. Are political assassinations terrorism? I don't know, but CIA needs to be careful taking out our enemies, because otherwise they will become a terror organization based on Trump's definition.

Trump names North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism - CNNPolitics

Trump said that North Korea has "repeatedly" sponsored acts of terrorism, including "assassinations on foreign soil."

The fact that Saudi Arabia was never on that list makes all previous lists laughable. You might as well change the names to "countries the US doesn't like".

Pretty much. The problem with expanding the definition of "terrorism" to include political assassinations, we are looking at half the countries on the planet as potential additions to the list, and it would include many US allies, and even the US itself.

Meanwhile there are atrocities happening all over the world where innocent people are being beat up, robbed and butchered by thugs and terrorists yet we hear very little about this.

When you think about it half the world should be on the list because their actions or lack of preventing terrible deeds is in direct opposition to what America stands for.

I see Part-2 coming for the movie "Team America World Police" with Donald Trump look-alike in it.

Why would even a liberal complain about North Korea being put back on that list regardless of what's happening in the rest of the world?

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un 'executes the family of his uncle Jang Song-Thaek' | Daily Mail Online

And he just killed his half brother a few months ago

Was his treatment an act of international terrorism?

Here is how the define it:

"Countries determined by the Secretary of State to have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism"

Executing your uncle does not boil down to international terrorism.

The whole list becomes meaningless when you insist there is terrorism, when there isn't.
