English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fall upon(v)

    To attack is to begin hostilities of any kind. A general invades a country by marching in troops; he attacks a city by drawing up an army against it; he assaults it by hurling his troops directly upon its defenses. Assail and assault, tho of the same original etymology, have diverged in meaning, so that assault alone retains the meaning of direct personal violence. One may assail another with reproaches; he assaults him with a blow, a brandished weapon, etc. Armies or squadrons charge; combat and encounter may be said of individual contests. To beset is to set around, or, so to speak, to stud one's path, with menaces, attacks, or persuasions. To besiege and beleaguer are the acts of armies. To encounter is to meet face to face, and may be said either of the attacking or of the resisting force or person, or of both.

    Synonyms:
    assail, assault, attack, attack, beleaguer, beset, besiege, charge, combat, encounter, invade, set upon, storm

    Antonyms:
    aid, befriend, cover, defend, protect, resist, shelter, shield, support, sustain, uphold, withstand

And stand up for the proposition that we won't let our bombs fall upon innocent civilians and have the moral responsibility which will be a blemish on our history for years to come.

    Over the course of a few days they are in need of shelter and water and supplies to get across the border so they can run for freedom and be done and they fall upon this home; and basically what goes on inside this home is far more disturbing than anything they could have done.
