I remember being around 8 or so, playing with a friend in the creek behind my house, and throwing clumps of mud at something or other, pretending we were bombing Libya. We're talking circa 1986. At the time, I had no idea what "bombing Libya" actually meant, just that it was an American thing to do, since everyone was talking about it at the time.
The more things change, the more they...don't change. Eh?
