Weapons of Mass Destruction
Weapons of Mass Destruction. Bush was right, according to Massachusetts U.S. attorney, who charged Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with “using a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property at the Boston Marathon.” Iraq must be home to at least one pressure cooker....
We are now to understand that the statutory definition of “weapon of mass destruction” refers to “any destructive device as defined in section 921 of this title,” which in turn includes: a “rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces.”
Other weapons of mass destruction, legally speaking: Bombs. Grenades. Mines. Missiles “having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce.”
