Number of the Day

72%: The percentage of US voters who "believe the United States is involved in too many foreign conflicts and should pull back its troops, according to a new poll conducted for The Hill. Seventy-two percent of those polled said the United States is fighting in too many places, with only 16 percent saying the current level of engagement represented an appropriate level. Twelve percent said they weren't sure."

The hilaritragic thing about the not-sure 12% is that some of them aren't sure if maybe we need to be in more foreign conflicts. "We're only in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and Yemen...? Couldn't we maybe drop some bombs on a few other countries, too?" Yikes.
