No. In a war of ideal
s, everyone fight
s. A resistance
is usually made up of civilian
s and if you think that the American Revolution
would have spared civilian
s if they were fighting against any civilians to spare, you're deluding
The difference between resistance and terrorism is the person describing it. To the Nazis, the French Resistance were terrorists. The IRA call themselves a resistance movement. The original French Revolution left ample civilians dead and yet is a simple Revolution in the eyes of the people. History is written by the victors. Revolutionaries who succeed call themselves heroes and simply do not reference the bodies left by the side of the road to victory.
We have always been at war with Eastasia.
