does the fact that terrorism is a different way of fighting make it wrong???
The thing is though....they use these tactics purposly on civilians and civilian targets. That's not justified no matter how you look at it.

If you had an army of say twenty thousand, and you wage a war on the world's most advanced superpower, how would you go about fighting that war? You certainly couldn't match soldiers, firepower, or technology. You have to come up with different means.

Firebombing Dresden did not shorten WW2. It pissed off the Germans.
Bombing London did not affect the English. It strengthened their reslove.
There is no strategic value to terrorism.
Hit and run. Guerilla war. That is something that is tried and true. Killing civilians does not work. Read a book.
