The Forever War

I saw a Prius with an old "end this war" bumper sticker where the red "this" was added above a crossed out "less". You remember that call for retreat during the Iraq War, which we fortunately ignored until we won that war (well, until we almost lost it after we left in 2011 and began Iraq War 2.0 to salvage our victory).

But the red "this" as well as the red cross-through line had faded to near-white, so the bumper sticker just read "endless war".

Which was rather prophetic--if you add in the weathering--considering the president's war record.

I'm not saying the war won't end. It just won't end during the Obama administration.
