Kinetic support: a euphemism for the President's pre-authorized war

By the time you read this, America's next, undeclared war in Iraq may already be under way.

Imperial militarists started floating trial balloons for the next American aggression as of June 11 in the Wall Street Journal, quoting "a senior U.S. official who added that no decisions have been made."

Those seemingly reassuring words from one or another anonymous official may have meant only that the decision had not yet been made whether to use drones, planes, or missiles to start bombing Iraq again.

Militarily, any such bombing is likely to be pointless. Psychologically, it will allow the White House to claim that blowing things up proves that the President is "strong," while Senators like Lindsey Graham and John McCain lead the chorus of "Masters of War" while calling for more. But expending lots of ordnance will at least have the usual economic benefit of allowing the Pentagon to order more WMDs to expend on more international debacles. We've seen this movie before.

Given the American popular response to last year's plans to bomb Syria, there's a pretty good chance that the militaristic trial balloons over Iraq will fall flat.
