Crusaders

If the Muslim nations of the earth sent large armies into the Christian countries, slaughtered entire cities to the last man, woman and child, including Muslims living there who had been contaminated by contact with Christians, what would we call these armies? When we did it, we called them crusaders. To this day we use the word crusade for any noble, difficult, world-changing enterprise. Bush-43 also used it to characterise the invasion of Iraq.
