The many headline expressions of war

BBSNews 2014-09-22 — By Michael Hess. For good or bad, President Obama has proceeded with airstrikes in Syria with little evidence of a strong coalition to this phase of what portends to be another U.S. led Middle Eastern war.

What first struck me when I started looking for sources to write about this bad news, were the headlines. Many times it seems that headlines about various U.S. wars are homogeneous and ultra-patriotic. So this piece is intended to record the headlines on this day, at the start of this now U.S. led war in Syria, against a both shadowy and showy foe, that tell a story of their own.

These headlines and blurbs you can easily find through a search and they come from the most well known players in the information delivery business:
