Obscure wars: American airstrikes in Syria
America quickly lost its attention span with the ongoing war in Syria.
I think that the current American war in Syria is the most obscure conflict we’ve had since the Dakota War of 1862, in Minnesota. We’ve flown 10 airstrikes there in the last few days. Did any interrupt our breakfasts?
Why is this so? I dunno. Obviously 13 years of war has eroded the American attention span. But is it something more than this? I mean, people just don’t give a flying peep.
