Oops. Did we invade the wrong country? Should we invade another. Apparently W is figuring since our guys are already in the midst of an ugly guerrilla war in Iraq, we might as well get into another one in Iran. I guess there is some kind of logic in that. Apparently the Germans are saying no- that force is not an option. But then you have to ask, if you take force off the table, what else does the EU and the US have to bargain with? Something that could work? This is where that old coercive diplomacy means something- "Do it or we blow you away" is said so that things get done but ideally the guns don't come out of the holster. But what if a member of your gang says, "Hey, what the fuck? You mean you are planning to draw as this asshole? Fuck that. Count me out." What are the remaining options?
