The people have a right to know: Are we at war? Or is this an intervention? Or... a "squirmish"?


Two real winners here, discussing international affairs, matters of state, war and peace. Just a couple of serious-minded, sober commentators, neither of whom is by any means simply stringing together half-remembered dog-whistle buzzwords, or desperately flailing towards a coherent thought on a complicated issue. "Nuance."
