Don't call them Freedom Fighters

I could be wrong but I think if you use children as decoys in order to carry out your plan of destruction, you shed any doubt for those who would call you a freedom fighter instead of a cold blooded heartless murdering terrorist.

BAGHDAD - Police said Wednesday that children were used in a weekend car bombing in which the driver gained permission to park in a busy shopping area after he pointed out that he was leaving his children in the back seat.
"Children in the back seat lowered suspicion, (so) we let it move through, they parked the vehicle, the adults run out and detonate it with the children in the back," Barbero told reporters in Washington. "The brutality and ruthless nature of this enemy hasn't changed."
Last April, a Marine told an Associated Press reporter in Ramadi that he was shot at by insurgents who were holding children. Other Marines on patrol in the city west of Baghdad have said Sunni insurgents ask children to check out American defenses or warn them of approaching convoys.
I also think it's ingenuous to call them "insurgents" or any other politically correct euphemism.
