http://democracynow.org – President Obama has just passed a little-noticed milestone, according to The New York Times: Obama has now been at war longer than any president in U.S. history—longer than George W. Bush, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Obama has taken military action in at least seven countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Just last month, President Obama announced the deployment of 250 more Special Operations troops to Syria in a move that nearly doubles the official U.S. presence in the country.

But will someone explain to me what the service is?

President Barack Obama joined world leaders at the UN climate summit–officially called the 21st Congress of the Parties for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP 21–in Paris this week, and promised to work for an “ambitious” agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
