“There are no clean wars and no intelligent deaths”

For those who may have forgotten our past, this guy has some intelligent narration of Beirut’s troubles at the moment… “There are no clean wars and no intelligent deaths, but civil strife certainly takes the prize for dirtiest and dumbest. Anything -anything- is better than civil strife.” His latest examines how the competing sides seem to be living in different tenses. Sound familiar?
