Terminate with extreme prejudice

Posted by Andy Sporner on March 14, 2003

I know this is a military term that means in effect
to "execute" or kill. But I am curious as the origin
of such words. As an American living abroad I am now
finding myself questioning phrases that I always took
for granted, mainly because they are idioms and are not
translatable..

Thanks

Andy
