Because We Should, We Can, We Do

There's a group out there.

Their tactics are to turn everything to their own advantage. Every move by the opposition is countered with a more ruthless counter move. Any strength of the opposition is turned to an advantage for them implementing the mantra, "attack their strength". They pursue a single-minded goal while being supported by a rigidly fundamentalist group of supporters who will doggedly follow their leaders. The normal rules of engagement are thrown out the window and there really is no limit to what they'll do to win.

Who is this group?

If you answered the Bush GOP you'd be right. But you'd also not be addressing the group I'm speaking of.

I'm talking about the Iraq insurgency.

Isn't it incredibly ironic that Bush is being defeated by the exact tactics he's fostered in U.S. domestic politics? It's like some kind of universal justice at work.
