      No it isn't. The Japanese don't care about things being called "kamikaze," and liberals literally do not matter and themselves have never complained about it

    Government linguistics rely on clear communication. Using unnecessary slang or jargon gums up the works. If it's a public announcement, it could get someone fired.

      Style guides aren't linguistics. Linguistics is the descriptive study of language, not prescriptive guidelines for rhetoric.

      Just wanted to point out one of the design features of American-style propaganda. Notice that references to “Houthi” in conjunction with a negative (“bad”) context must always be modified as “Iranian-backed Houthi”. The purpose is to create the semblance of a proper noun, or name, which associates Iran with current bad thing (Houthi) making Iran also the current bad thing. Probably the reason for doing that is to make sure “Iran = enemy” stays firmly in the public’s mind so that the public discourse, or media presentation, doesn’t forget that Iran is the main enemy and that defeating the Houthis doesn’t mean defeat of Iran, and anything the Houthis do is also the fault of Iran. If you pay attention you’ll notice this style of propaganda in other topics.

      The purpose is to identify them as the proximate threat actor but not the operant cause of the problem. It's very straightforward. They are a proxy. Their capabilities hinge on Iran. But they are not themselves Iran. You can't say it more succinctly than how they say it.

    Kamikaze isn't an accurate term for drones, as it specifically refers to suicide bombing. Drones can't commit suicide. Do you call bombs and missiles kamikaze weapons?

      Bombs and missiles always self destruct. Drones don't. You call them kamikazes to differentiate them.

          who gives a frick? the essence of a kamikaze attack is for a flying object to ram into a target and explode, destroying itself and hopefully the target in the process and everyone instinctively understands this.

              Sounds like a missile or a bomb. Or maybe you missed the point entirely, and the differentiating point of a "kamikaze" is the fact there's a human life involved?

              Bombs do not fly, they fall. Even guided munitions or cruise missiles don't fly, at best they are propelled, which is different.

              who gives a frick if it's a jap in the wienerpit or a circuit board, the principle is the same of a ramming aircraft with explosives strapped to it.

      A single bullet deleted a multi million dollar autonomous bipedal replicator with onboard consciousness that took decades to produce. A single bullet, made by parts bought from the Volga, assembled by Slav babushkas and guided by untrained mobiks without microchips.

      A single bullet. One. Infantry are beyond obsolete. In fact it’s way more economical to just conceive a human and immediately abort it in front of the maternity ward. It saves the costs of having to transport it to its theater and have it destroyed by a bullet alongside the equipment.

      Every nation that keeps producing infantry has decision makers with a lower IQ than the average Black. Absolute insanity. Just imagine you send a pallet with 100 million dollars somewhere to have it blown up. What’s the point, people might ask? Exactly. What is the point in sending infantry to war?

        So what? No one says "American-backed Israel bombed an orphanage". You would have a 180 degree different opinion if that’s how Arab press refers to Israel. It’s openly, obviously propaganda.

        Another example of this kind of propaganda is "Russia’s war with Ukraine." It’s never "Ukraine war", "Russia-Ukraine war" or "the war in Ukraine". It must only be referred to as "Russia’s war in Ukraine". Same when there is any related topic like price shocks, shortages, migrant issues, etc, the media requires you to understand that the negative thing belongs to / caused by Russia. A simple but effective technique to manage the opinions of the public.

    OWA-UxV is appealing to people who want a taxonomic approach to describing the varieties of craft being encountered. It's also used for sea drones

    [...]

    [...]

    .

    The central tendency of people trying to pin down the semantic parameterization of a concept space is to think in terms of axes and see whether a simple 2-dimensional representation of some sort can be sufficient to span (fully exhaust) all possible cases.

    This will always end up being reductive in the real world, when modeling anything that isn't completely trivial – it's why political compass memes are so popular, and why people will enthusiastically bikeshed over alignment charts relating to almost anything.

    But the hope is that the reductive shorthand will be useful, particularly with respect to consistency in describing things found on the chart in terms of a×b crosses of features, rather than needing to introduce the lexical baggage of terms long-marinated in unrelated meanings.

    You don't need to know "torpedo" or "kamikaze" or anything else to know that when you take
    × unmanned
    and you cross it with
    × air
    and you cross it with
    × one-way
    and you cross it with
    × attack,

    you have an aerial strike drone that probably behaves in ways consistent with expectations about loitering munitions rather than cruise missiles or ISR drones or other craft.

    And so on.

    In the end, the dimensional/axis approach to describing things this way will succeed if the axes succeed in what smartbois call "carving nature at the joints," i.e. if they succeed in defining optimal category boundaries.

    if one would insist on using japanese terms, then kamikaze would only be used to describe the overall strategy and not individual units
    because kamikaze in reference to one-way attack planes was a press term used to refer to the entire special attack group

    the specific term applied to individual one-way attack planes was tokkotai, short for special attack unit
