President Obama: Ending perpetual war

From President Obama's inaugural speech:
A decade of war is now ending...

We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war...But we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war; who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends -- and we must carry those lessons into this time as well.
The talking heads I've heard comment on this part of the speech have assumed that he was talking about Iran. But my take is that he was actually talking about ending the perpetual war in which we are currently engaged.
