I guess it really depends on which side of the "surge" you are on, doesn't
it.

The British Crown certainly saw the "impudent Colonials" as "insurgents",
while the Colonials certainly saw themselves as "patriots".

It's always the ones who WIN who get to write the History Books, not the ones
who LOSE.

And that is not true. The Japanese write their own history books and
they are quite different than the American, Australian, Chinese, or
Philippine.

"Patriots" don't make their point by blowing up their countries mothers,
fathers, and children as they try to pursue normal lives. There is
nothing patriotic about what terrorists are doing.

And amazingly, the question still remains: "What have the terrorists gained
for themselves after all the destruction of property and loss of life and
limb?" Answer: "Nothing whatever." KM
