I think this is partly true. Up to and during the American revolutionary war if you were on the side fighting for independence you were considered a traitor and terrorist by the British, other European countries and the loyalists living in the country. It wasn't until they started winning and were recognized by France and others as a separate country that they were considered patriots and in the right. The same goes for countless struggles throughout history. I alot matters on how it is conducted though. If innocent people are slain and tortured and the fight subjagates others at the same time then it will always be labeled terrorism.

Thank you. I'll be on the lookout for your discussions if they are as thought provoking as this one.
