Vassar College graduate Marc Thiessen and other muscular hawks repeat their call for war on Libya, in a March 15 letter to President Barack Obama. Two of the 38 signatories have served in some kind of uniform, by Suits & Sentences' count.

Arab League member nation fighter planes: 2,163
Arab League member nation fighter planes sent to Libya: 0
United Arab Emirates: 80
Saudi Arabia: 287
