    Wouldn't it imply more hierarchy than a simple suicide bombing, though?

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=homicide+bomber
    1. homicide bomber
    Another name for a suicide bomber, coined by Fox News in their quest to become more "fair and balanced." Problem is, homicide bomber is redundant because any idiot who detonatnes any bomb that kills someone, regardless of if it is strapped to his/her body or not, is considered a homicide. The reason the other networks say suicide bomber is because the bomber blows themself up also. See also, Fox News calls the Tsunami disaster the "killer wave" disaster. Way to EDJUMICATE the public, Mr. Murdoch.

    Well, that's all fine and dandy except for one little problem ... one can be a bomber and kill NO ONE; therefore, a descriptor IS required. Based on your definition, homicide is no more or less redundant than suicide.

    The term suicide bomber is used to give legitimacy to murdering scumbags by anti-US, apologista leftwingnuts and I'm not having any of it.

    It does ----that is why we have a war on terror--to stop the leaders of this movement, those who protect or abet them and the hatred they encourage. Where have you been?

    (I know I know--some people think the war is on ALL muslims. We haven't sorted that out yet.

    Let's ask Nucular. He's a walking testament to the ability to focus all one's attention on one small word. :rolleyes:
