  •  Maybe we could call it a "police action" (3+ / 0-)

    It was good enough for Harry Truman. I don't think calling cruise missles "advisors" is functional, though, but there are probably many more euphemisms we could trot out if so inclined.

    Or we could just call it war, which is what militaries engage in. Unless the President and Congress are going to go over there and personally kill people, I suspect they''ll turn to the military to do that - the one that was overseen by the War Department and Secretary of War when we still had some honesty in government and politics.
