HH: Ought we to be talking to Iran right now, Victor Davis Hanson?As ThinkProgress notes, paper tigers are generally not beings you need to throw bombs at. You may not even need to raise scissors against them.
VDH: Yeah, I think that’s way, way overdue. We really need to start doing some things beyond talking, and if that is going into Iranian airspace, or buzzing Iranians, or even starting to forget where the border is and taking out some of these training camps, we need to do that and send a message, because they’re a paper tiger. They really are.
However, I think that Hanson slipped and really meant a paper liger. As we all know, a liger's skills in magic are quite formidable, even on paper. Erasers are no match for a paper liger. Don't even think of raising pencil or pen to modify its form. Its magic shield can easily repel such foolish attempts.
No, my friends, you must commit the whole way if you want to take on a liger. And Victor knows this. He knows it all too well. Why it must've been about 20 to 30 years ago when that last liger got away...
