Interesting that just two of these have ended up later winning their national elections (Sandinistas and Hamas) (so when does a "guerrilla group" become part of that country's "establishment"?) Hezbollah and IRA (via Sinn Fein) have a small number of their members elected to parliament, and the Taliban and Khmer Rouge have ruled their countries for a period after armed uprisings.

In high school social studies (a few decades ago), my teacher noted with some irony that the guerilla warfare that was such a thorn in the side of the US, was the same tactic that helped us win the Revolutionary War two centuries prior.

It was great when they showed up in newspaper headlines in the Philippines before. My favorite I think was "Philippines Army Slams MILF Hard"... but the group has since changed their name I think in part for this reason.

Its an uninhabited region north of the United States. Recently there were some rumors that people are living there now. Its impossible to say for sure. Most scientists think its impossible to survive the harsh winter conditions.

All kidding aside, it's amazing how some of us Americans think people up in Canada live in Igloos. They're a first world and fully developed country and only the Inuit near the north pole live in igloos. We need to get better at learning more about other countries.

There was a Canadian show called "Talking to Americans" which was kind of a mix between Leno's Jaywalking Tonight Show segments and "Da Ali G Show". On on episode, Mike Huckabee, then Governor of Arkansas, congratulated Canada on its efforts to preserve its National Igloo in Ottawa.

Guerrilla group or just murderous terrorists? Calling them a guerrilla group somehow legitimizes their purpose (and in that case ISIS would be even more infamous), and I think that is why they shouldn't be included. Of course the same goes for some of the others already on the list

Totally agree with Sputnix on this. Calling these groups guerrillas seems to add some legitimacy to them, when in fact they are just a bunch of murderers who don't care who they kill or cripple. Maybe change the title to Terrorist organisations as this is what they are.

Having looked up definitions of 'guerrilla' I have to add my voice to those above. Most of these groups are terrorists, not guerrillas. Guerrilla implies that they are fighting against and army or government, not blowing up and murdering civilians.
