Kings of Leon Panetta: ‘we’re within an inch of war almost every day’
The SecDef has done something politically incorrect: he’s spoken the truth. From The Hill:
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta offered a blunt assessment of the threats facing the United States on Wednesday, saying the potential for another war breaking out remains high in places like North Korea.
“We’re within an inch of war almost every day in that part of the world,” Panetta said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, in response to a question about the threats in the Korean Peninsula. “And we just have to be very careful about what we say and what we do.”
And I thought it was going to be all seashells and bubbles. What’s up with that?
