Defending Against "Invasion"

(Image by Michael Ramirez)
No, I'm not talking about manning the trenches in a desperate battle against hostile minions hell-bent on conquest.

I'm talking about Team Obama's wordplay defense in using Russia's "violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity," vs. the cruder term: "Invasion of Ukraine."

This fits right in with the slew of Orwellian-ish terms Team O cooked up, like:

--"Man-Caused Disasters" to describe terrorist attacks.

--"Workplace Violence" to describe the massacre at Ft. Hood by a self-confirmed terrorist (who by the way wants to be the new ISIS poster child).

--"Overseas Contingency Operations" to describe war.

Just to name a few off the top of my head.

I guess Our Dear Leader and his minions think that if they merely change the terminology, the American people will be too stupid to figure out what's really going on.

And speaking of stupid:

If all we're going to do is hashtag our enemies, we may as well do it with a sense of humor, like the Canadians did a few days ago.
