No. In a war of ideals, everyone fights. A resistance is usually made up of civilians and if you think that the American Revolution would have spared civilians if they were fighting against any civilians to spare, you're deluding yourself.

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.
