What our Marines are up Against

See this post by Michelle Malkin for an idea of the lengths that the "insurgents" will go to to try and stop the elections in Iraq in January. It reminds of a recent conversation I had with one of my best friends, Jeff, (affectionately known to me as Jefe) just before the election. He disagreed with my terming the "insurgents" as terrorists. After a lengthy discussion that included Militia Men of the Revolution and Contras in Nicaragua, we finally agreed on our definition of a terrorist:

Terrorist - A person or group who specifically targets civilians, women or children in an effort to wage a mental war on their target.

I win Jefe! They're terrorists! Ironically, however, we all lose.
