WMD

abbr. Weapons of Mass Destruction

Talk of WMDs was all that filled the media in the run up to the Iraq war in 2003. It was a term used to cover everything from ballistic missiles, to their presumed payloads of conventional and biological weaponry.

Once it was realised they never existed, all talk of WMDs ceased.
