#1 This is pretty significant, I think. The hard part for guerrilla warfare comes when they actually occupy territory. That's when the govt can come in and root them out and kill them all, or at least most of them, if the regime's not weakened enough. See Somalia, Islamic Courts, for a recent example.

#2 Good for them. Hope they're like the Iraqi Kurds.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
