War speak

A sort of syllogism:

  • The people they are defending against over in Iraq are called insurgents.

  • The proposed buildup in US troop level is being called a surge.

  • Therefore, we might well refer to the additional troops as outsurgents.

Well, it's better than "surge-ans."

Kind of off-topic, but maybe not - the opposite of debunk. Rebunk?

You mean like when the Mythbusters confirm a myth? How about "Knubed," which almost looks like it might be a word?
