By sticking with its current acronym, the Islamic version of MILF is in a precarious position made famous by Richard Nixon's fundraising organization, the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP).
As everyone knows the military loves acronyms. Too much in some cases, like Direct Input Limited Duty Officer, a college graduate commissioned by the Navy as Reserve Officer for the specific duty of teaching. The acronym: DILDO.
The entertainment industry, which ought to have a better handle on communication, includes the unions SAG (Screen Actors Guild), GAG (Graphics Artists Guild) and ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers).
The federal government at least deserves a tip of the hat for candor in its laughable acronyms, like Jimmy Carter's energy policy, the Moral Equivalent of War--MEOW--and, of course, the common abbreviation for the House of Representatives--HOR.

Happily for the MILF rebels, their acronym issue is lost in translation to Filipino languages. Should the MILFs hope to garner the sympathies in the English-speaking world, however, they might consider reverting to their original appellation, MNLF (Moro National Liberation Front) or choosing a new one. Just as long as they stay away from Moro Islamic Militia Effort (MIME).
