If I hear another person on Fox News say “Homicide Bomber” I’m going to get violent. I swear these people are retarded.
Here’s the concept for the term:
It’s not fair to the victims to call it a suicide bomber, because they didn’t only kill themselves.
Are these people completely dim? Do they think people regularly take themselves out (and only themselves) with explosives?
Here’s the real reason it’s a stupid term. Bombs kill people. When you hear that a bomb went off in a shopping mall in Tel Aviv, you know it was meant to kill human beings.
Now, that leaves two types of bombs — the kind where it was remotely detonated and the attacker was not killed, and the kind where the attacker had the bomb with them when they detonated it. That’s called a fu#%ing suicide bomb. It’s different because of the suicide — not because it killed other people.
Or, to put it another way — the term homicide bombing is redudant — suicide bombing is not. You can have a bombing that kills people that isn’t a suicide bombing, but you can’t have a bombing that kills people that’s not a homicide bombing. So why say it?
Sometimes I hate people.
