I agree. A resistance movement engaged in armed struggle against the 
overwhelming odds of an occupying force wins by not losing, while the occupier loses 
by not winning.

The Iraqi resistance, merely by continuing to exist, retains the upper hand 
both militarily and in terms of the no less important propaganda war.
