I have no idea what Williamson is meaning by "mass".
Wikipedia has this to say about "lethality":
"Most often it is used when referring to chemical weapons, biological weapons, or their toxic chemical components."
Even if he doesn't specifically mean those tools of death, lethality is about killing people.
Everything about that man disgusts me.
@fitheach Yeah, he sounds like one of those sociopathic politicians who likes the feel that these words make in his mouth, which is why he uses them a lot, without ever having a single thought about what war means for the people conducting it or the poor victims caught in it.
In the US they often use the classification "doves" or "hawks". Willimson seems to be portraying himself as the latter.
The awful thing is being a hawk often leads Western countries to go and bomb some defenceless people somewhere.
@fitheach I'm sure all of this blather about "lethality" will not help at all in discussions with the EU neighbors.
I'm sure there will be some major side-eye from the French.
I'm not so sure, Macron has been sounding very militaristic recently.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
