Jon Stewart on Libya: ‘Don’t we already have two wars?’
Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart wondered Monday why the U.S. had gone to war with Libya.
“We’re at war?” he asked. “Again?”
“I don’t want to be a pain in the ass, but don’t we already have two wars?”
“You know, wars aren’t kids, where you don’t have to pay attention to the youngest one because the older two will take care of it,” Stewart observed.
With operation Odyssey Dawn well underway, Stewart pointed out that both Democrats and Republicans have complained the U.S. is out of money.
“You know, you can’t simultaneously fire teachers and Tomahawk missiles,” he said.
