War.

When the government knows that the American people are sick of intractable wars and thinks we are stupid enough to be swayed by semantics.

Shooting down planes, destroying tanks, and bombing air defenses to support a faction trying to overthrow their government in a civil war is war. But to call a war a war would mean that the president would have to go to congress before sacrificing our money and lives for his Wilsonian neocon agenda.

As you watch this kinetic military action unfold, just remember that Obama was supposed to be the peaceful alternative. Obama is nothing more than George Bush with more pleasant sounding rhetoric.
In just the first week, the kinetic military action cost the american taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars.

Political jargon for an act of war or other violent military operations. Generally used when politicians don't want to say "war."
“I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone,” a White House official says. “Obviously that involves KINETIC MILITARY ACTION, particularly on the front end.”
