What's a "terrorist country?"

One that engages in terrorism? One that supports terrorism? One that harbors terrorist?

Or is this some deranged means of simply cataloging which countries you are afraid of?

This. If it is the one that harbors terrorists, all countries are terrorist countries.

Oh, and a thousand dollars says that if you did this six months ago, Syria wouldn't even be on your list.

Your choices are much more representative of which countries american media prefers to demonize than any actual metric.

No kidding how many terrorists come out of North Korea a year? How many people period come out of north Korea a year...
It looks more like a list of countries we aren't supposed to like. Where's Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan? The countries who harbored the terrorists involved in 911

I think that to use the adjective "terrorist" to describe a country is a bit bold. A better way to say that would be to list "countries who harbor terrorists." But, one should draw a distinction between those countries whose governments actively promote terrorism (like Iran) and those countries who just have terrorists in them, but actively suppress terrorism (like Russia).

I would define 'Terrorist Country' as a country of a terrorist government/leadership. Which incurs the questions, who is a terrorist, and in whose eyes?

The only functioning one that fits the mark now that Afghanistan is down is the de facto Islamic Emirate of Somalia.

The countries listed, I would consider them 'sponsors of terrorism'.

your list is balderdash. china and russia are our allies. north korea is just run by a crazy dictator. cuba is actually a nice place and america just never got over cuba's move to communism. venezuela is just having some power shifting issues. when does a civil war make syria a terrorist country? Iran is just a scamming business-like country.

But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

That's an important question which raises a host of ethical concerns in foreign policy. I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this matter.

Lol wut? Russia and China are number 1 and 2? You do realize that being powerful doesn't automatically make countries bad, right?

That's pretty harsh on Russia and China.

Also, I don't care what anyone says. Putin is fuckin' awesome. He could hands down kick the @ss out of Obama.

2) How in the f*ck is North Korea a hotbed for terrorists? I dont think a single terrorist has come out of North Korea considering that NOBODY comes out of North Korea

3) Same with Cuba as China, I dont think a single terrorist has come out of Cuba. In fact the only country responsible for putting terrorists in Cuba, is ironically the United States! (via guantanamo)

4) You misspelled Syria

5) How in the f*ck can you claim this is a list of terrorist countries when ONLY ONE OF THEM IS EVEN FROM THE MIDDLE EAST???? Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, and a half dozen other countries in that region alone harbor more radical terrorists then most other countries on this list combined.

There are many countries around the world that would consider the US the world's leading terrorist country, and that US terrorism receives voluminous government sponsorship.

The point being, agree with wnope and lewis20. This list has little to do with actual terrorism, and more to do with believing media propaganda on the issue.

Just to hit this point home (from the wiki):

Professor William Odom, formerly President Reagan's NSA Director wrote:

As many critics have pointed, out, terrorism is not an enemy. It is a tactic. Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today's war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.
