BLOWBACK*: may refer to one of the following.

< Best Buddies

>Any negative effect one suffers from one's own weapons, such as the possibility that one's own weapons used in a nuclear war could create fallout that could be blown onto one's own troops or nation.

>Blowback is a term now broadly used in espionage to describe the unintended consequences of covert operations. Because the public generally is unaware of secret operations, the consequences transpire as a surprise, apparently random and without cause, and blowback results.
