When did ´terrorists´ become ´insurgents´?
If one can admit that the govt. in Iraq is not a freely elected, appointed or approved legitimate govt. body, than these folks who are revolting against said body are really not insurgents...

Why are they called that now?

Just because a decision is made to strip a people of its leader (no matter how bad the leader was) and install a new form of govt. does not make the people railing against the new body ´insurgents´.

Most of them are Iraqi patriots or nationalists defending their nation from a foreign and imposed culture.

HI all!
They are insurgents because calling them terrorists is SO incorrect that it would soon threaten Americans. It started to be recieved as "We call freedom fighters terrorist, you are next...." So they changed the wording.

Are we next?


Are we?


Be safe.

If the superpower of the world invaded your nation, killed your women, children, elderly, cut off your water,food, electricity and medicine and bombed your town with depleted uranium, what would you do? What would you want to be called when your struck back? Or would you just cower down with your tail between your legs? With the massive amount of distain that the world now holds for the U.S.A. becasue of this illegal war, the probability that we will be attacked and invaded has increased tremendously.

Re: When did ´terrorists´ become ´insurgents´?
I just think the semantic spin is ridiculous...you hear that word bandied about these days like people actually know what it means. Most people, I´d imagine, don´t give the rhetoric a second thought, and of course the Iraqi ´insurgents´ don´t really give a toss what they´re called by the propagandists...

They´re not really terrorist, just native people trying to rid their country from those who want their oil. The coalition could be more appropriately named insurgents since they´re the ones invading another country.

THE iraqi freedom fighters are not insurgents, they are freedom fighters,, the name was changed because the words freedom fighter gives off the aura of sympathy, we should be sympathetic to them as well as the palestinians who are all freedom fighters , fighting for freedom, the iraqi people have less freedom now then they ever had in the history of iraq, there is no freedom in IRAQ with the american apes holding guns to women and children, they never show footage of a child lying dead or a woman who happend to be traveling in a car going to fast , but belive me there are photos like that out there, one woman was shot dead for approaching the soilders yesterday with a basket of bread.. this is the reality war, the soilders have been there too long and are starting to lose their minds, they are seeing every iraqi as a threat, even the three year old they killed last week who was running away from a house where his family was just blown up by a missle, they shot the kid dead on the spot for running away, y´all chould check the military boards

Re: When did ´terrorists´ become ´insurgents´?
AC 4:07 many of the insurgents are not of iraqi origin others are bathists ,sunni´s, etc. etc. etc.The common guy is not out there with a gun. Its the fanatics and those who used to be in power. What you will get if these freaks set up a government is a theocracy that will only represent the Imams and the islamic zealots. The common man and especially the women will be screwed. By the way don´t tell me the will of the people for a theocracy should be honored. The few terrorize and subjigate the many in a theocracy. Don´t believe me? Google "Iranian bloggers" and see what they have to say about living under sharia law , as interpreted by peverse old men.

War declared on resistance

November 7, 2003

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Times has ordered its journalists to stop describing anti-American forces in Iraq as resistance fighters, saying the term romanticises them and evokes World War II-era heroism.

An email circulated this week asked staff to instead use the terms insurgents or guerillas.

An assistant managing editor, Melissa McCoy, said on Wednesday that the memo followed a discussion among top editors at the paper and was not sparked by reader complaints.

McCoy said she considered the term resistance fighters an accurate description of Iraqis battling US troops, but said it also evoked World War II - specifically the French Resistance or Jews who fought against Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto.

She was confident that Times reporters who used the term had no intention to romanticise the Iraqis who have killed more than 100 US soldiers since Washington declared the war all but over in May. The paper´s Baghdad bureau had no objection to the change.

David Hoffman, foreign editor of The Washington Post, said his paper had used the phrase resistance fighters to describe Iraqi forces and had no objection to it. "They are resisting an American occupation so it´s not inaccurate."

That can't be right.
Anyway, I appreciate finding this thread and reading the 2003 'directive' above re: the deliberate change in use of the word, even if it's almost 11 years coming. Thank goodness for media and market research!! I LOVE the ways they try and tell us all what to think!
