War games - how oxymoronic!

Many media reports, including this one and this one, about military events in Queensland and the Northern Territory involving about 25,000 military personnel from Australia and the United States, along with Japanese and New Zealand military “assets” and personnel, are describing the events as “war games”.

Seriously, “war games” is right up there with “military intelligence” at the top of the list of classic oxymorons.

Just the mention of “war games” causes this bloke to see red.

C’mon journos, it’s lazy journalism. Drop it like a red-hot potato.
