If there is one consistent theme I've seen from our on-going occupation of Iraq is how the media, military, and politicians refer to the people we are fighting: "Criminal gangs", "Thugs", "Bandits", and "Outlaws". But never "rebels", "nationalists", or "patriots".
This is an old story that played out in much the same way 80 years ago in Nicaragua.
