Who's the insurgent?

Read any news report, or listen to any politician about the war in Iraq, and invariably the word "insurgent" will be thrown around in reference to those who violently resist the US military and its allies. I got curious about the use of this word, and decided to look it up. Here's an intriguing definition:
Person who challenges the current state of affairs. An insurgent group is one that seeks to overthrow the present leadership or regime and install a new order.
This sounds a lot like Bush and his cronies. So who's really the insurgent in Iraq?
