The "No Sh** Sherlock" Statement of the Day

From the Jerusalem Post:

An Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement could be reached "within the year," but only if all sides agree to peaceful negotiations, Quartet Middle East envoy Tony Blair said in an interview to be broadcast Friday.

James Taranto offers up some other "could's" along similar lines:

The Iranian election dispute can be resolved peacefully, but only if Ayatollah Ali Khameini is sincere in his devotion to democratic principles.

The budget deficit can be reduced, but only if Congress refrains from wasteful spending.

The Nationals can still win the pennant, but only if they win at least 3 out of 4 of their remaining games and the rest of the teams in their division collapse.

(Hmm, the way the Phils have played of late, they'd better worry about the Nats!)
