Boondoggle

One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Peace, war, and something in between

A RealClearWorld editorial explains why Iran is No. 2 on its list of who is most likely to “cause Obama’s first 3 am call.”

The United States and Iran have quietly – and sometimes vociferously – been somewhere between peace and war for nearly 30 years.

Um…aren’t relations between any two countries generally “somewhere between peace and war?”  Granted, many may be at the explicit “peace” end of the spectrum, but this still falls within the given range, no?

With this level of specificity, I just don’t feel much to fear from a country that may or may not be espousing — either vociferously or quietly — feelings of vague non-peacefulness.
