Now children, what's the difference between terrorists and freedom fighters?

Yes, that's right, terrorists are freedom fighters that the government doesn't like... freedom fighters are terrorists who the government likes.

Most terrorist groups (aside from those who are merely criminal, including the ones run by governments to defame their opponents) see themselves as freedom fighters, regardless of what the rest of the world may think. If you ignore that, you'll never understand why they do what they do.
