Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The origin of the mistake is that in my comment I mean wars declared as such for the americans. Also bombing declared as a war (whatever war). We eruopeans have such a loose defination for war... we never learn!!!

So, the US did outsource wars but not the ones they called wars and wanted the public to be called as such. I think everything makes sense now... sort of.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude

No, but if he doesn't write that promised diary about Economics and the Second law of Thermodynamics I'm going to have to start to troll-rate his comments. </snark>
