A describing word used primarily by American armed forces during Operation Enduring Freedom.
This term was largely taken to mean that a friendly target (usually British) was engaged accidentally. However it has recently come to light that the Americans are so angry at Britain for unleashing Leona Lewis on them that they randomly fire on British units whenever 'Bleeding Love' comes on Iraqi Radio.
RADIO: "I keeeeeeeeeeeeeep bleedddddddin.."
HELICOPTER PILOT: "I'm going give those Brits some friendly fire."
