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.

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