Watch the language

In this Reuters story about the Turks bombing northern Iraq, watch how it's worded:
The Turkish military regularly targets separatist Kurdish PKK rebels, who Ankara says use remote areas of northern Iraq as a base from which to fight for a Kurdish state in what is now southeastern Turkey.
The same paragraph could be started with:
The Turkish terrorists regularly bomb Kurdish territory.
Every war is different depending on who you agree with and it's usually the folks with the most money and who use the more powerful murderous weapons that get the positive spin in the press.
