A lot of people are expressing frustration with the U.S. entering into another war thanks to its air strikes against Libya. But when you think about it, America is all about growth. We've been in only two wars for close to a decade now. So, it seems like it's about time we set a higher goal of 3-5 wars by the end of 2011, lest we really fall behind the rest of the world.

Nevertheless, on Tuesday night's show, Conan asked the same question that pretty much everyone has been on earth can we possibly afford to fight three wars? Isn't the military already overextended? Aren't we out of money anyway?

Conan then revealed the armed forces newest recruitment video, which he introduced as evidence that our military really is scraping the bottom of the barrel in an effort to cover all of its ground.
