Roll Tide

About that receding tide of war that our president promises us he has engineered:

While Americans savored the last moments of summer this Labor Day weekend, the U.S. military was busy overseas as warplanes conducted strikes in six countries in a flurry of attacks. The bombing runs across Asia, Africa and the Middle East spotlighted the diffuse terrorist threats that have persisted into the final days of the Obama presidency — conflicts that the next president is now certain to inherit.

The six are Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan (what, no Pakistan that weekend?)

And here I thought that we waged war only because of war-mongering "neo-cons".

Say? Who on the Left will be the first to claim that President Obama just likes to bomb brown people?

Oh, who am I kidding?
