Glenn Greenwald presents a glossary of foreign affairs terms today and he starts off with a huge hit into the upper deck.
The act of dangerous, threatening Hitlers -- NYT, today:
Iran was reported Monday to have test-fired long-range missiles capable of striking Israel and American bases in the Persian Gulf in what seemed a show of force.
The acts of a peace-loving democracy - Telegraph, January 18, 2008:
Israel has carried out the successful test launch of a long-range, ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, in what was intended as a clear show of strength to Iran.
The key is perspective. We're not that concerned with missiles aimed away as opposed to towards us. Why should the people on the other end feel any differently?
