insurgency CSIS

A report by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, which is now a year old, but is one of the only attempts to statistically analyse the nature of the Iraqi insurgency: findings are discussed here.

The report concludes that attacks on civilians account for 4.1% of 'insurgent' activity, which is statistically close to the estimated percentage of the insurgency made up of "foreign fighters": can one reasonably suspect then, that the non-Iraqi insurgents are responsible for these terrorist attacks, but the genuine Iraqi resistance overwhelmingly focuses its attacks on calition forces?
