My Pitch for a Soft Reboot of the Iraq WarWe base our soft reboot in Syria.
It’s got a dictator, stockpiles of chemical weapons, and an extremist insurgency of radical terrorist warlords. Of course, we modernize it all a bit for our audience — I think ISIS is a particularly nice, soulless reimagining of their Taliban source material — but it’s all largely the same song and dance. The Syrian War. Picture that in lights. On news headlines. In protest songs. On magnet ribbons supporting our troops. It practically rolls off the tongue. The Syrian War. - - McSweeney’s
