Why does Fox call suicide bombers "homicide bombers"

  1. It doesn't make sense because the "Bomber" part of the
    phrase already covers the homicide part because bombs are used to kill.. Its like saying "bomber bomber"

    It sounds kind of silly. Also, homicide bomber does not explain that the person also purposely took their own life in the process.

    idk, I get what they are trying to say but I just think its kind of gay.

    The term "terrorism" is being used too loosely these days, too.

    I get what they're saying as well. Maybe they think "suicide" bomber draws sympathy for the bomber in certain circles.

    Anyway I'm with you, suicide bomber says it all...villainous murdering POS.

    Why change it?

    After a string of suicide bombings in Israel someone on the GW Bush staff told the media to call them what they are, which according to them was homicide bombers. The only network that complied with their demand was Fox.
