Frankly, I don’t see why merely saying “He died for a cause he believed in” is a comparison to suicide bombing. To be more honest, it’s a darn right slap in the face of our soldiers and their families.
Yes, the terrorists died for a cause they believe in. But “dying for a cause” does not constitute as terrorism.
Gandhi was willing to die to see India become independent from British rule, and he did so without any sort of violence. Is he a terrorist? How about our soldiers in WWII fighting to stop the spread of fascism? Are they terrorists?
