3. So now the current euphemism is "projectiles".

What the hell does that mean? Is NK using catapults? Are they launching "bullets"? Are they using potato cannons?

Of course they aren't. WaPo, for some reason, isn't calling a spade a spade. What NK is actually doing is launching MISSILES, not "projectiles." Maybe "projectiles" sounds less alarming and frightening. That's okay, but why is it becoming the norm when describing NK's threatening behavior? Are the missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads? Maybe WaPo can call them nuclear weapons-capable potato cannons.
