W's mass distruction

I keep seeing the term "weapons of mass destruction" abbreviated as "WMDs." Such an abbreviation doesn't make sense, though, as the "s" is pluralizing "destruction," making the phrase "weapon of mass destructions." To abbreviate correctly, the acronym should really be "WsMD."

So why aren't we seeing the correct abbreviation? I smell a Republican conspiracy that Michael Moore would be proud of. Read "WsMD" aloud. Your brain automatically hears an apostrophe: "W's MD."

I suppose "W's mass destruction" doesn't sound too good to the right-wing spinsters. Don't let them keep the proper acronym hidden any longer! Fight for grammatical justice!
