War, Place, and Time 

John Kerry has taken to calling Iraq, the "wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time." Powerline asks what sort of war he would support. Here's a little free help for the Kerry campaign, showing all the permutations of right/wrong for War, Time, and Place. He could carry these around on a card, so that when he needs to know what the right war, in the right place, but at the wrong time would be. (Scroll down. Something funky with Blogspot's template creates a lot of white space before tables...)

War Time Place  
Wrong Wrong Right A full invasion of Iraq, 10 years ago, if asked now.
Wrong Right Wrong Vietnam, if asked in 1971, perfect for jump-starting political careers
Wrong Right Right The Cold War.
Right Wrong Wrong Supporting Nicaraguan rebels; better to have supported Castro
Right Wrong Right The French and Indian War. Oh, wait, the French were the enemy, and, um not those Indians
Right Right Wrong WWII in Europe, since Germany didn't bomb Pearl Harbor
Right Right Right The Texas-Colorado Tomato War.
