Could someone define the term "terrorism"?

USA is meddling in to almost every sovereign country's affairs who do not give in to the US demands, who do not follow the US directives to run their country's affairs. Could this be called State terrorism? Following are the excerpts of only a few of the many proofs of CIA installing the Governments of its choice, or disposing of those disliked by America. President Zia-ul-Haque of Pakistan, Castro of Cuba, Manuel Noriega of Panama are just a few examples.
Also, it is a commonly known fact that Saddam Hussain of Iraq, Shah of Iran, Benazir Bhutto and now Asif Zardari have all been propped up by the US Government through its CIA operatives. Even for the recent election in Lebanon which is not mentioned in the following text, I personally know many Lebanese families living in America who were provided return tickets, for them and all their children even the minor ones, to travel to Lebanon in order to vote for the Lebanese President of American choice. Could Lebanon afford this extravagance, I doubt it!

To read the complete text of the following excerpts you will have to go to the following links:

1-Former Pakistani Army General Mirza Aslam Beig claims the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has distributed 400 million dollars inside Iran to evoke a revolution.

In a phone interview with the Pashto Radio on Monday, General Beig said that there is undisputed intelligence proving the US interference in Iran.

The documents prove that the CIA spent 400 million dollars inside Iran to prop up a colorful-hollow revolution following the election, he added.

Pakistan's former army chief of joint staff went on to say that the US wanted to disturb the situation in Iran and bring to power a pro-US government.......

2-Flashback: CIA Discovered Planning “Soft Revolution” in Early 2009

June 22, 2009
TEHRAN, Jan. 19 (Mehr News Agency) — Iran has broken up a CIA-backed network that sought to carry out a “soft revolution” in Iran through people-to-people contacts.

The “soft revolution” plan is based in Dubai and is similar to a U.S. plan that targeted the Soviet Union in 1959, the director of the counterespionage department of the Intelligence Ministry told reporters at a press conference here on Monday.

He said the CIA was seeking to implement the plan under the cover of scientific and cultural contacts between Iranian and U.S. nationals.......

3- National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 5
The Death of Che Guevara: Declassified
by Peter Kornbluh
On October 9th, 1967, Ernesto "Che" Guevara was put to death by Bolivian soldiers, trained, equipped and guided by U.S. Green Beret and CIA operatives. His execution remains a historic and controversial event; and thirty years later, the circumstances of his guerrilla foray into Bolivia, his capture, killing, and burial are still the subject of intense public interest and discussion around the world.

As part of the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Che Guevara, the National Security Archive's Cuba Documentation Project is posting a selection of key CIA, State Department, and Pentagon documentation relating to Guevara and his death. This electronic documents book is compiled from declassified records obtained by the National Security Archive, and by authors of two new books on Guevara: Jorge Castañeda's Compañero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara (Knopf), and Henry Butterfield Ryan's The Fall of Che Guevara (Oxford University Press). The selected documents, presented in order of the events they depict, provide only a partial picture of U.S. intelligence and military assessments, reports and extensive operations to track and "destroy" Che Guevara's guerrillas in Bolivia; thousands of CIA and military records on Guevara remain classified. But they do offer significant and valuable information on the high-level U.S. interest in tracking his revolutionary activities, and U.S. and Bolivian actions leading up to his death.....

4- The CIA's Arab revolution
By Amir Oren
Two weeks ago, U.S. Congressman Darrell Issa, a Republican from California, visited the "holy of holies" of U.S. intelligence, the headquarters of the CIA, in Langley, Virginia. Issa, whose father's family immigrated to California from Lebanon, is a member of the House Committee on Intelligence. As a young man he served as an officer in the U.S. Army, but left to enter business.

Issa's positions on Middle Eastern issues will not earn him honorary membership in the "friends of Israel" club. When making a choice between Lebanon - especially between his ethnic group there, the Christians - and Syria, he prefers Lebanon; but between the Arabs and Israel he is for the Arabs. His visit to the CIA, for a discussion with staffers, was intended to emphasize "the importance of having officers of Near Eastern descent serve in the Intelligence Community." "Near East" or "Middle East" - the terms are used interchangeably in Washington, but one way or the other, he was not talking about Israelis.....

5- 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état was a covert operation organized by the United States Central Intelligence Agency to overthrow Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán, the democratically-elected President of Guatemala. Arbenz's government put forth a number of new policies, such as seizing and expropriating unused, unfarmed land that private corporations set aside long ago and giving the land to peasants, that the U.S. intelligence community deemed Communist in nature and, suspecting Soviet influence, fueled a fear of Guatemala becoming what Allen Dulles described as a "Soviet beachhead in the western hemisphere".[1] Dulles' concern reverberated within the CIA and the Eisenhower administration, in the context of the anti-Communist fears of the McCarthyist era. Arbenz instigated sweeping land reform acts that antagonized the U.S.-based multinational company United Fruit Company, which had large stakes in the old order of Guatemala and lobbied various levels of U.S. to take action against Arbenz.[2] Both Dulles and his brother were shareholders of United Fruit Company.[3]....
