Military Term of the Day: International Peace Keeping Force

Since the NATO summit this week, during which America's awesome diplomatic supremacy was able to rally a whopping 35 Belgians. 150 French Gendarmes and a battalion of British troops for operations in Afghanistan, I think we've lost track of what a true International Peace Keeping Force really is. I realize that military doctrine might be above the level of some readers, so here's Jon Stewart to explain the term "International Peace Keeping Force" in a segment on the Daily Show that's called "News For Kids".

Yes, NATO's amazing show of solidarity with the US is an example of the erosion of diplomatic supremacy that is only natural when you rest the sole responsibility for foreign policy squarely on the shoulders of the US military.
