A ruse used by one nation as a false pretext for invading another, often but not always humanitarian in nature. Refers to the World War I propaganda put out by the Allies accusing the Germans of slaughtering Belgian babies.
The claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was a Belgian baby; in reality, self-interest rather than humanitarian concern was the motivating factor.
