An insurgent is someone who is not in the official military of a nation but fights against a country in a rebellion (see insurgency). The Iraq War was actually a short war, it's now an insurgency. There are insurgencies all over the world, Chechnya for example.

It's not just a 'liberal term' for 'terrorist', grow up. Not all insurgents are terrorists, while many feel they must resort to such tactics.

Get out of your redneck holes and get educated. Stop blaming all of your problems on liberals, Bush was the one who lied about WMDs and started the pointless war.

A word for rebel that the Bush Administration uses to define freedom fighters in Iraq becuase the administration thinks that it sounds more like "inserted" implying that the rebel forces are from outside Iraq and therefore less legitimate.
"Let's not use 'rebel,' that will remind kids too much of Star Wars and they might start thinking that these people have a right to defend their country from foreign invaders. Use 'insurgent,' instead. That way it sounds like they're terrorists rather than just people trying to defend their homes."

A term that relates to someone fighting in a guerrilla war/insurrection. It basically means somebody fighting or rebelling against their home country (ex. someone in Libya shooting at pro-governmnt forces.) However, to the Bush Administration and anyone who watches Fox News, it means a terrorist or someone fighting against U.S troops or any of their allies.

Does not mean a terrorist, Fox News and Bush may think so, but that isn't true at all.
Bush: I got it! Let's call them insurgents! People won't tell the difference between them and terrorists! Ha ha ha!!!
