Some Peace

James Taranto smacked Brent Scowcroft upside the head for saying, “we've had fifty years of peace.” Taranto then lit into him. Between 1953 (when the Korean War reached its truce, now in year 62) to 2003 in the Mideast alone we’ve had, Taranto said,

“the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the Iran-Iraq War, the Gulf War, the two Palestinian intifadas against Israel, the Algerian Civil War, the Yemen Civil War and two Sudanese civil wars. That doesn't even count acts of terror against non-Mideastern countries, from the Iranian invasion of the U.S. Embassy to the attacks of 9/11.”

Peace through appeasement never works. Give ‘em hell, Taranto.
