US missile strike: "state terrorism"?

Pakistan, as a member of the "coalition of the willing," has learning that the American citizens potentially losing their privacy are not the only "friendlies" being asked to sacrifice in the "war on terrorism." That missile attack earlier this month is provoking all sorts of harsh criticism.

The BBC reported this development:
But nearly two dozen of the country's Islamic parties and right-wing political groups, have made statements expressing outrage and condemnation.

Some have described the bombings as state terrorism, and others have said it is an attack on the entire Islamic world.
State terrorism?

Is that what one calls it when a state launches a surprise "armed attack" on another state and kills a number of innocent people?
