    If you are talking about the intentional targeting of just civilians, nope, it's not justified, ever.

    The Brits probably thought the Boston Tea Party was terrorism.

    For example when the U.S. dropped atom bombs on Japanese cities?

    That wasn't terrorism, that was war, pure and simple. Uniforms and plane markings. Never forget, the second would not have been dropped if not for Japan's reaction.

    Terrorism: attacking civilians for political purposes.

    Note, not for strategic reasons. That's what was done in WWII, to stop FURTHER killing.

    However, they did lay out why they had a problem with the political, if memory serves it was called the Declaration of Independence, which the largest ink was spilled to spell out the grievious injuries done to the colonists.

    Mind you, this was after years of trying to get the king and parliament to hear their cries.
