    A pilot who bombs a city? His commander? His commander's commander? The fellow who loaded the bombs on the plane?

     r me it's as simple as this: anyone who uses terror as a weapon is a terrorist. A husband who beats his wife, a criminal who bombs the car of a rival, a drug dealer who cuts the ear off a client who won't pay, or a religious zealot who thinks he can change the faith of infidels by bombing them into submission. They are all terrorists. The word is a description of the means people use rather than the religion they belong to. If the government uses terror to achieve its ends they, too, are terrorists.
