How Many Wars Are We In?

Mint Press takes a look at how many wars the U.S. is engaged in right now. They tally up 134, although the most recognizable ones number 5. None of our current presidential candidates seem to have a problem with that.

Keep in mind, Mint Press is a rather obscure news outfit. I last heard of them when they did a debunk of the story of Syria's Assad using poison gas on opponents. Believable story, but it seemed as if their version could be true enough to me. I suspect it's a Russian news outlet.

Well, if you include the War on Drugs, The War on Poverty, the War on Cancer, the War on Not Behaving Like a Nit Wit, etc., then maybe 134 is about right.

If you count everywhere in the world we station troops or ships you might come close to that number (we are EVERYWHERE) but that doesn't mean we are shooting at people in those places.

I have to kind of go with your evaluation... Someone's fantasy as opposed to objective truth.
