OK here is the new and approved definition for UW that I just read in Special Warfare.

Unconventional Warfare: Activities conducted to enable a resistance movement or insurgency to coerce, disrupt or overthrow a government or occupying power by operating through or with an underground, auxiliary and guerrilla force in a denied area.

That being said, what we are conducting in Iraq as SF is Counter Terrorism using FID, DA, SR and so on according to this article. This is a pretty interesting and informative read for anyone in the SF community and out of the community.
