So what, any time something happens and a person loses their life,
that's terrorism?  My Grandpa died of a terrorist attack against his
prostate, which later metastasized to his bones and other organs?

Soldiers in WWII who died in a firefight were the victims of terrorism?

Earthquakes are terrorists?

For a definition of terrorism to be useful it has to clearly delineate
things which are not terrorism.  Cancer, natural disasters and acts of
war are clearly not terrorism.
