Well let's see...
"Assassination is the murder of a prominent person or political figure by a surprise attack, usually for payment or political reasons.
An assassination may be prompted by religious, ideological, political, or military motives; it is an act that may be done for financial gain, to
avenge a grievance, from a desire to acquire fame or notoriety, or because of a military or security services command to carry out the murder."
Murder on the other hand...
"Murder is the unlawful killing, with malice aforethought, of another human, and generally this premeditated state of mind distinguishes murder from
other forms of unlawful homicide (such as manslaughter). A person who commits murder is called a murderer."
That's what Wiki had to say about it.
So, assassination is apparently only for the important
people who get ambushed...the rest
of us schlubs just get killed.
