Because, the viet cong hid behind women and children during the war so that they would have human shields that the american soldiers wouldn't sfoot at. They'd strap explosives to children and send them over to soldiers at times as well. To make matters worse, during that time during the war, most people actually focused on how "horrible our soldiers are treating those poor people" and so our fighting veterans were called baby murderers and horrible things, as well as even spat on and beaten. So, yes, the Viet Cong WERE in a sense, terrorists in a way that they used the fear of american soldiers to fight them and kill them by acting with cowardice.
History Class and, oddly, Rambo.
