Not a War (Still)

30 Mar

A report from yesterday states that:

As part of “Operation Odyssey Dawn,” the US military also launched 22 Tomahawk cruise missiles in the past 24 hours, bringing to 214 the total number of missile strikes since the operation began on March 19, the Pentagon said.

John Kerry (D-MA) recently said to David Gregory “I would not call it going to war,” as they discussed reports of five U.S. warships firing 112 Tomahawk cruise missiles at 20 different targets scattered across coastal towns in Libya.

Joe Scarborough had a good question:

One wonders what Kerry’s constituents would call the actions of a foreign power launching over 100 cruise missiles across Cape Cod. I suspect most would consider it to be war.
