In America the very first terrorist were the Minute Men who would fight behind stone walls and trees against the Red coats who stood in open fields and straight lines. What would become a Turkey shoot for the Americans. America was not a country yet and didn’t have the weapons that the Brits had and so they had no choice but to fight like terrorist.
As head of the Terrorist group Irgun; Menachem Begin would blow up a Hotel killing 91 people! This happened before Israel became a country and Begin would go on to becoming one of its Prime Minster while winning a Nobel Peace Prize to boot! Does seem that after you become a Country these types of acts are classified as just collateral damage!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
