Many people feel the use of the expression "one person's guerilla is another's terrorist," I was trying to say that no, a guerilla is someone who uses unconventional tactics to win a conventional war, and a terrorist is some one who uses random acts of violence to strike fear in a population and force a paradigm shift in beliefs. Like at the turn of the 20th century it was the anarchists we feared until the bloodbath of the first world war. That war only led to the rise of communism and the fear of nuclear war.
