Either the U.S. military intervention in Libya, March 2011, or what happens when two worms get into a fight.
Sarah Palin: I haven't heard the President say that we are at war, and that's why I too am not knowing, do we use the term 'intervention'? Do we use 'war'? Do we use 'squirmish'? What is it?

Jon Stewart: Squirmish, huh? Well, that's either some sophisticated foreign policy analysis or what happens when worms get into a fight.
