The teenagers in the movie resorted to guerilla tactics to defend their homeland. Is it safe to call them a terrorist organization? --LiteratiChamp 19:23, 20 July 2007 (EDT)

It all depends on how you define terrorist. If I remember the movie correctly, they only attack military targets, so I would say no. The only thing they do that is possibly a war crime is kill a POW, and that's understandable under the circumstances.--Frey 18:59, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
Whoops, I forgot the bombing of the "Soviet-American Friendship Center". That does come closer to the line, but personnally, I wouldn't call it a terrorist act. It's not exactly a military target, but the only people that would be in a place like that are Soviets and collaborators. And bombing it had a direct effect on the occupation. It's not like bombing a marketplace just to prove you can.--Frey 23:17, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
It goes to show how thin the line can be between terrorist and defender. (though, like someone said, attacking civilian targets is a big part of it)Maestro 10:58, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
