7. These fighters in Iraq are not terrorists.
They are soldiers. The guys who blew up the WTC did it with some box cutters and planning. Those people were terrorists. Its a much bigger blow to the U.S. psyche and hence, "terrorizing" to blow up a building full of hard-working civilians than a group of soldiers trained to kill and die for their country. Not too mention its easier.

The fighters in Iraq are no more terrorists than the Colonial Americans who engaged in guerilla warfare against the British Redcoats were.
