Skip to comments.They’re not Insurgents – They're Terrorist Cockroaches!
Posted on 12/28/2004 11:02:15 AM PST by CHARLITE
You were hard-pressed to find the story or to see the images anywhere in the mainstream media three unarmed Iraqi election officials recently murdered in cold blood on their way to work dragged from their car and shot in the head, execution style, by spineless terrorists the entire massacre caught on film. Their crime? Helping to further the cause of a free and democratic Iraq.
Since the end of major combat operations, hundreds upon hundreds of innocent Iraqi men women and children have been deliberately targeted and blown limb from limb by foreign invaders by the same Al Qaeda, Muslim fundamentalist terrorists who murdered three thousand Americans on 9-11, and who would gleefully kill every American man woman and child if they could.
But to the liberal media to the left, these terrorists are merely Iraqi Insurgents noble freedom fighters skillfully and willfully endeavoring to rid Iraq of the great Satan wronged rebels attempting to righteously combat an illegal American led foreign occupation. The blame-America-first crowd prefers to lay responsibility for the death of innocents at the feet of the true enemy President Bush Donald Rumsfeld the American soldier the United States!
Michael Moore, the bloated, bloviating propagandist filmmaker who was seated in great prominence at this years Democratic National Convention, perhaps best personifies todays left. This morsel of Moore wisdom nicely sums up the liberal take on the terrorists: The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not insurgents or terrorists or The Enemy. They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow and they will win.
In wars past, prior to the advent of political correctness, these words would likely have been considered treasonous, and may have even been actionable. Many regard them as treasonous still today or at least deem both the words, and those who acknowledge them un-American.
But such people are not un-American. They are American (notwithstanding the fact that they are clearly ashamed to be). What they are is anti-American. The irony is palpable They loathe the very Country in which they possess the inalienable right to spew such poisonous tripe without fear of retribution. They have nothing but disdain for the men and women who have died, and continue to die so that they can freely and richly live out their lives as thankless, pitiful, misguided blowhards.
In truth, these anti-American Americans embody the terrorists false hope for victory. They unwittingly add fuel to the fire. As they besmirch our Nations noble effort to provide freedom and democracy to the Iraqi people, these naysayers these purveyors of doom and gloom only help to galvanize the terrorists to embolden them and strengthen their resolve. Whether or not they realize it, their actions severely undermine progress in the war on terror. They have become unwitting terrorist allies. As a result of their words and deeds, American troops and innocent Iraqis have died and will continue to die.
War is hell! Its an extremely tough road that lies ahead. The upcoming Iraqi elections will prove to be a pivotal milestone, signifying the beginning of the end for the terrorists. As they continue to ramp up their murderous efforts, dont think they dont realize it.
But already, America and the world are safer with Saddam Hussein dethroned. To a large degree, the Iraqis are a liberated people the majority of them will tell you that. Theyre free from the clutches of the evil despot responsible for the murder, rape and torture of hundreds of thousands of innocents. The Butcher of Baghdad will never again fill mass graves with the tortured bodies of the blameless. His minions will never again rape and murder little girls as their fathers are forced to watch. He now sits in prison awaiting his fate, which lies in the hands of the very people he victimized. With freedom comes justice and despite the best efforts of the terrorists and their anti-American allies freedom and justice will prevail in Iraq.

comparing the "insurgents" to cockroaches is an insult; to the roaches. A better description is "godless, fetid piles of s**t."
"In truth, these anti-American Americans embody the terrorists false hope for victory. They unwittingly add fuel to the fire."
I'm not sure how unwitting it is.
By the way -- and I swear I'm not asking this with a liberal smirk -- does anyone have a working definition of terrorism vs. insurgent?
Ewwww - look at the big fat one. Step on it before it breeds....... :-)
Can I please make one point, unrelated to the main thrust of the thread.
Major combat operations are not finished in Iraq, regardless of what Mr. Bush said those many months ago. When you have 10-15 thousand troops clearing a city (Fallujah), that is a major combat operation.
Now as far as the use of the term insurgent is concerned, it is an accurate use of the word, whether we like it or not. One need only consult a dictionary to conclude this. They are, at the same time, terrorists involved in the insurgency. One can be a terrorist and an insurgent at the same time.
The longer this goes on the worse it seems to get..
I am all for the troops and the Administration but
let's help with the election....then clean up as
much as we can and let them go at it....in spite
of it all...I don't feel we need to exacerbate the
situation..it is a religion to them to kill us
and damned if i want to see our grandchildren under
the same terrorists on a consistent basis....Jake
The problem is that if we don't keep them focused on and in Iraq they will be coming to our shore in more numbers than they are now for us to have to "deal" with them here. And in dealing with them here, there would be a lot of going through the courts, etc......over there we can kill them and save ourselves a lot of money and deaths.
My Websters defines the term insurgent as one "rising in rebellion against the prevailing government". No motivations for those rising against the government are ascribed, so be they nihilists, or radical Islamic terrorists, it is inconsequential.
Given that the terrorists are, in fact, "rising in rebellion against the prevailing government", I am forced to conclude that my defense of the use of the term insurgent is 100% accurate.
Liberals like to redefine terms to suit their political ends, we should not mimic them. Words are what they mean, and the terrorists fighting us in Iraq are accurately called insurgents. Again, note that while terrorist and insurgent may not be synonyms, one can accurately use either term.
You obviously forgot all about Allah, din'tcha? Getcher butt down on your prayer rug and pray... oops, prey for fortakeness !!! ;-))
does anyone have a working definition of terrorism vs. insurgent?
Not much difference. Inserting it into a gent is terror in my opinion !!! ;-))
Ummmm. Not so fast, Sherlock.
An insurgent targets the government, not civilians at random.
Terrorists, have no such self-restraint.
Big enough distinction for me!
Ya got him there buddy..I call them islamic scum myself , just for the record
As someone has already said, we do a disservice to cockroaches here ( wondering how long until this thread is "pulled"). However we must be carefull what we say about our Muslim brothers, as to insult them is to raise their ire and we all know what happens to Infidels who insult Muslims. NO, not panties on the head or our tackle fondled , I mean CHOP"off with their heads". With their faces covered and under the shroud of anonymity Arabs can do anything. So the police run away if shots are fired, so Iraqi soldiers ( most except a few brave ones ) evaporate at the first hint of danger, so they sell the lives of their comrades for a couple of dollars, they do not shirk and are indeed delighted, to hack off the head of a bound and gagged innocent, Muslim or Christian makes no matter. And the other thing they excel at is 'Swarming'. Whenever there is death in the air they appear, like vultures, mopping up every body part with their bare hands, howling "Allah' to their god and whining about some imagined wrong-doing centuries before. There is no placating these fundamentalists, ( in case you had forgotten who I am on about) and as they pray for death I too pray for them to receive it from our very own Angels:
"Terrorists murder civilians: men, women and children indiscriminately. Citizens are not to be confused with the government or military of any country."
In that case, the people attacking our troops in Iraq are insurgents after all, and NOT terrorists...the only ones who are terrorists are the ones targeting civilians?
