Well semantically and technically I suppose you are correct, though your quote is rather oddly chosen, (since it directly contradicts what you are saying), and, as you hint, the WMD label has been degraded by propaganda use.
The MD bit I assume isn’t a point of issue, so its the W bit that’s arguable.
If you pick up a rock and chuck it at someone it becomes a weapon, though it wasn’t designed as such.
Lets call it a TWT (Tactical Weapon Trouve)
If you pick up a natural infection and allow its spread internationally, while implementing stringent control at home, it becomes a weapon in the same way.
Other netizens allegedly posted images of Ming Dynasty leader Zheng Chenggong, who defeated the Dutch in Taiwan, and wrote: “Although he was from the Ming dynasty, many of his descendants are still here, just across the Taiwan Straits.”
Dunno, I’d think trouser press would be the origin of trouser press, but if you were to press a trouser press into service, unmodified, as a weapon, I suppose it could be made to fit the context, and then you wouldn’t be talking crap.
Which would be nice.
Was a rif on objet trouve. Look it up if you need to and arn’t just taking the piss (press?). Should have an acute accent at the end, but as a loan phrase adopted into English I think its probably legit to skip it, and anyway I couldn’t be arsed.
After all, most of the readership are Americans, FFS.
