    Of course not.

    Wars are political and involve violence, does that make all the soldiers terrorists?

    Also, Bieber? :lolwut: I know his music is bad, but I wouldn't class it as violence. Maybe aural torture.

    Churchill fought against fascism. He was a freedom fighter.

    Bin Laden fought for religious totalitarianism. He was a fighter against freedom.

    That is the difference.

    I know so little on Bin Laden but didnt both of them just want control of their people...opinions on how they wouldve ruled it is perhaps different..

    many say the original irish peace fighters weren't terrorists for example..

    but the IRA..they fought for rights for the mainly irish people of northern ireland...why is that classified as terrorism:?
