The term "defence" is often used as a euphemism for war
Those enamoured by the military-industrial complex use this word to refer to virtually anything that is "war-related."
Various war technologies—no matter how deadly or offensive they may be—are called "defence technology."
By thus referring to the technology of war, oppression, regime change and mass destruction as "defence" equipment, those who profit from these enterprises put a carefully-calculated spin on how they want people to understand what this technology does and the functions that it serves.
