    Re: If you are fighting...

    The way I see this debate is "Do the terms 'terrorist' and 'Freedom fighter' have a subjective meaning, or an objective meaning."

    I think that they have objective meanings, and that the meanings are not related. They both can apply to the same groups.

    A person using terrorism to fight for freedom is not less of a freedom fighter for using this tactic, nor would they be less of a terrorist for using those tactics to fight for freedom.

    It's pretty simple in that sense.

    Trying to link the two as opposing ideas is creating a false dichotomy based on how people apply the terms, not on what they actually mean.

    You just followed up one blanket statement with another... bravo.

    You're welcome.

    I'd point out the irony but I don't think it would translate.

    Confusing at first. But a thoughful question. I chose No-no. Because I have a functioning brain.
