cold wars versus hot wars

an interesting article in the guardian this morning raises the prospect of a new cold war…  so in the interests of global peace and security, here are 5 reasons why cold wars are better than hot wars.

1: Much more potential for John Le Carre, much less potential for Andy Mcnab.

2: Fewer people seem to die.

3: The rise of interesting terms, such as ‘Iron curtain’.

4: Gives everyone (on both sides) a warm glow, knowing that there is a ‘baddy’ out there, and its not us.

5:  Jobs for spies, ensuring that they arent just defecting to big business.

So hip hip hooray for Messers Putin and Bush.  Long may your war remain cold!
