Nope, in my world view revolutionaries are a subset of terrorists, 
specifically domestic ones whose aim is specifically to overthrow the 
current government, whatever form that may take, as opposed to 'simply' 
influence policy issues. Most all of the terrorist acts I can recall are 
from groups external to the state in which the act occurred.
