If the empire was the ruling force in the galaxy then destroying alderan was more like a government sanctioned ethnic cleansing which Is much worse in my opinion.
Technically this wasn't a terrorist attack because Alderaan was still part of the Empire. The Empire destroyed it because they found out that it had Rebel activity. If it was done for political gain then it would be a terrorist attack, but it was to defeat the rebels, who would be the actual terrorists at the time.
Well at this point what difference does it make?
