A Rose, By Any Other Name...

We're apparently not at war in Libya... instead, it's a "kinetic military action".

Just wanted to clear that up.

Unfortunately for the White House, despite what they may think or want us to think, what "kinetic military action" means is... well, "war".

"Kinetic" is a word that's been used around the Pentagon for many years to distinguish between actions like dropping bombs, launching cruise missiles or shooting people and newer forms of non-violent fighting like cyber-warfare.
