LOL - The ONLY f'ing group I know nothing, absolutely nothing about. I defer to area experts.

I'm no area expert, but I do know that they are a insurgency. They have a great website: http://www.eelam.com/
But they pioneered such terrorist tactic sensatiosn as suicide bombing, female suicide bombing, suicide swimming, and the list goes on. They are organized as a traditional military with an army and a navy. They control territory. They are insurgents who use terrorism as a tactic.

Ok - we're going to have to limit the classifications. Terrorists, guerrillas, what else. Insurgents covers a lot of ground, however, I've been using the term Terrorist Insurgents to cover just the kind of groups you are describing.

One term I can't stand is "rebels" - WTF is that? Newspaper sensationalism in my book. Its unprofessional. Freedom fighters is another.

So what's the difference between a guerrilla and an insurgent?

I think insurgents covers pretty much everybody. So you have to specify - Terrorist Insurgents, Guerrilla Insurgents (redundent when I say it out loud)

AQ?

They're insurgents. They have political leadership and a military structure. They have attacked political, military and economic targets. They have held and aspire to hold again territory with the possible ultimate goal of establishing a permanent religious/political government.

You can't call them insurgents. They're all insurgents.

Guerrillas or terrorists? If you'll agree, I want to add in Terrorist Insurgents.

I'll say guerrillas first, but if you add terrorist insurgent then my vote changes to that.

Hell Yes or put it on disk and send me a copy. Just make sure it is footnoted and cited properly. So I can publish it. I will even make it a text book at Harvard.:D
