Troops

Posted Sep 03, 2005 in Media, Miscellaneous, War.

Would the media please stop misusing the word “troop” everywhere! A troop, in this particular context, is defined as a body of men. It is not a single individual, who technically should be referred to as a “trooper” - although “soldier” is probably better. Ten troops does not mean ten soldiers!
