Iran and Russian Roulette
Charles Krauthammer reveals more of his insightful suggestions for better diplomatic relations:
"You want us to talk? Fine. We will go there but only if you arm us with the largest stick of all: your public support for military action if the talks fail. The mullahs already fear economic sanctions; they will fear European-backed US military action infinitely more. Such negotiations might actually accomplish something."
I guess it should be dubbed 'Gun Point Diplomacy'.
Why in the name of liberal journalism does this guy get printed in the Irish Times?
I hope I don't speak just for myself when I say Charles Krauthammer's definition of 'negotiation' is becoming more unrecognisable by the day and while I appreciate his insightful suggestions for more productive diplomatic relations with Iran, I think 'Gun Point Diplomacy' is best left to Hollywood.
