"Late Show" host David Letterman took a more serious approach with his opening monologue, saying the proposed attacks on Syria would lead to long-term fighting.
"Hey, this is going to be an enjoyable switch for Obama — now he can start a war that the next president will be stuck with," Letterman said. "So it's a little bit of a change-up there.
"They're saying now that the war against Syria will last no more than two days," he continued. "Well, you know what that means: we'll be there for another 10 years."
