SMH: Not afraid to call a spade a tool for digging

Who is the sub-editor responsible for this headline?

Timid guerilla? What the fuck?

He wasn't so timid when he and his fellow barbaric scumbags took 1300 people, mostly children, hostage. He wasn't so timid when Russian authorities stormed the school and - according to witnesses - he opened fire into the crowd of hostages.

Why is he a "guerilla"? He's just another fucking piece of scum that think actions leading to the deaths of 168 school children is an acceptable way to achieve Chechen independence. Calling him and his compatriots "guerillas" legitimises their actions.

It's just a damn shame he's only facing life imprisonment.
