Having been traveling from San Sebastian, Spain to San Francisco all day Sunday and then some and being out of the news loop, I was a little punchy by the time I saw the headline. I assumed it meant that we were going up against Russia or North Korea or the Ayatollahs of Iran playing brinksmanship of some kind. Those three would count as archnemeses of the USA, in my book.
