The very word "war," therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist.
– Orwell, 1984

Number of U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan: 100,000
Number of U.S. troops currently in Iraq: 46,000
Number of U.S. troops currently in Pakistan: at least 200
Number of Tomahawk cruise missiles fired into Libya: 112

According to a 2010 report by the Washington Post, approximately 13,000 American special Operations forces are deployed to 75 countries, including 9,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan. ‘The Obama administration has rejected the constitutional executive authority claimed by Bush and has based its lethal operations on the authority Congress gave the president in 2001 to use "all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons" he determines "planned, authorized, committed, or aided" the Sept. 11 attacks. Many of those currently being targeted, …"particularly in places outside Afghanistan," had nothing to do with the 2001 attacks.’
