A phrase coined when weapons of mass destruction just wasn't scary or sinister enough anymore. Taken literally, this phrase could only mean any weapon that could take the lives of several human beings. When used in a political sense, it is used to refer to the enemy's weapons that we don't like them using. When weapons are labeled Weapons of Mass Murder, they carry the connotation of being unethical, but to me "unethical weapons" implies there are ethical weapons.. and that doesnt really sound right. In reality, ALL WEAPONS ARE TOOLS USED TO MURDER. It shouldnt be long before the propaganda machines in washington start sugar coating our weapons and refering them as "Weapons of Mass Freedom".
We must use our Soldiers of Mass Righteousness to seize iraq's Weapons of Mass Murder.
