Times Square Car Bomb Suspect Verbs "Revenge"

ABC News's report on Faisal Shahzad's guilty plea includes clear evidence that he intends to continue his war on our country by any and all means. In this quotation, he terrorizes our culture with an assault on our language by ruthlessly verbing "revenge":
'It's a war. I am part of the answer to the U.S. terrorizing the Muslim nations and the Muslim people,' he said. 'On behalf of that, I'm revenging the attack. Living in the United States, Americans only care about their people but they don't care about the people elsewhere in the world when they die.'
Yo, Faisal, go to India and learn our language! Oh, right, with multiple mandatory life sentences, your terrorism will be limited to setting the fork to the right of the plate in the prison mess hall.

Update: The AP story has been updated and "revenging" has been changed to "avenging".
