Rumsfeld gets it

The mainstream media are having a heyday with Rumsfeld's declaration today that the enemy in Iraq are not "insurgents". He's late to the party but he's absolutely right.

From the SF Chronicle:
More than 2 1/2 years into the Iraq war, Donald H. Rumsfeld has decided the enemy are not insurgents.

"This is a group of people who don't merit the word `insurgency,' I think," Rumsfeld said Tuesday at a Pentagon news conference. He said the thought had come to him suddenly over the Thanksgiving weekend.
They are guerrillas, they are terrorists, they are lowlife scum of the earth, they are assholes, but they are certainly not insurgents.

Webster defines insurgent as, "Rising in revolt against established authority, especially a government." These cowardly half-wits with explosives don't have the sense to understand revolt. The only thought in their heads is that killing innocent civilians somehow makes them great in the eyes of Allah. Huh?
