Grenada is the obvious choice, given that we sent half of the army to rescue some med school dropouts. Somalia though? Most of the country couldn't find it on a map at the time, still not sure why we invaded. Panama at least has a certain degree of geopolitical importance, controlling the Pacific-to-Atlantic shipping artery.

Panama has geopolitical importance because of shipping lanes, but Somalia is a completely random country. And how does Vicelord of the Admiralty Cheese imagine that crude oil from the Persian Gulf, not to mention goods produced in Asia, arrive in Europe? Why is it that there are pirates in Somalia? Could it be that somebody had the bright idea of building a canal in Egypt so that ships wouldn't have to sail all the way around Africa to reach the Mediterranean from the Arabian Sea or the Indian Ocean? And that to reach this canal, might there be a relatively narrow pass between Somalia and yet another random country the US always seems to be involved in?

Thank you, I am aware of the existence of the Suez Canal.

That being said, UNSOM 1 and 2 were expressly humanitarian missions. Some cursory googling indicates no major anti-piracy operations at the time.

This is Reza Shah Pahlavi. He started as a poor soldier and worked himself up to become the king of Iran. Still think that feudalism doesn't work?

This trend towards pre-slicing blocks of cheese is making us weak and will cost us the upcoming war vs. North Korea.

I don't mind the pre-sliced cheese for a tailgate or something. It's an easy thing to just toss in the cooler and not have to worry about bringing a knife or anything. But I almost never buy it and ultimately I think your point is valid.

Do we have problems with deli trays?

Or is this solely pre-sliced cheese blocks?

i was proud to get through a summer working at a supermarket deli counter without slicing a finger open. always a pleasure to have some old betty come in and ask me for half a pound of my hard salami.
