IED - The new BS bellwether

IED - Improvised Explosive Device.

For me this is the new bellwether of fear and BS.

Listen and look at how it's used in Government releases and Media reports. It's the new butter for the fear-churn. WMD is tainted, IED is fresh and exciting!

IED - "I can't believe it's not WMD".

It seems as though IED is now becoming a useful acronym to wrap with fear, uncertainty and doubt.

What can we do?
  • Take note of where IED is used and how it is used.
  • Point out BS occurences of IED to other people
