New Additions To The Vocabulary

Every war adds words to the national lexicon. World War II gave us "jeep" and "G.I." (not to mention "atomic" and "firebombing"). Korea gave us "human wave". Vietnam gave us "napalm", "VC" (that means "Viet Cong", not "Venture Capitalist", for anyone wondering), and "body count" (as well as a bunch of unprintable ethnic slurs).

What will this war bring? Ken Goldstein has taken a stab at it with his Suggested New Terms for the 2004 edition of the OED.
