A Vocabularial Complaint!
Everyone seems to be doing this: Fox News, MSNBC, and everyone in between.
If a person sustains bodily damage due to intentional causes, then it's a wound. People are not "injured" by snipers, machine guns, rockets, or IEDs--they are "wounded." Now, if a soldier falls out of the back of a truck because he's a clutz, it's an injury. If he's blown out of the back of a truck when it hits a mine, he's wounded.
Let's not use euphemisms so we don't have to think about the ugly results of war.
