Has the balloon gone up?

From the New York Times:

Artillery fire echoed through the Iraqi border region tonight and Iran's state television showed video of explosions from airstrikes in and around the Iraqi port of Basra....

Artillery? Airstrikes? That sounds rather like a war to me; where are the 24-hour coverage and 72-point headlines?

Airstrikes? Sure.
There's been fighting in the no-fly zones since the first Gulf War ended. It really started to escalate again after 1998.

God, I hope this isn't as ugly as it could get. I really hope it isn't.
