Seemed clear enough to me. Yet I received a fair amount of reader mail suggesting my point wasn’t clear at all. I soon realized that my statement could be read either as a matter of fact, or as a lament. Readers seemed to think I was upset that practically nobody wants to go to war with Iran.
So let’s clear that one up: going to war with Iran would be a really bad idea. Let’s not do it, and start the New Year right.
