Obama, like Bush before him, has an obligation to sometimes inhabit the real world. He doesn't have the luxury of the delusions of a Cheney or Netanyahu or Lieberman. The US has to work within the framework of diplomacy because: * we don't have the troops to mount a credible threat, * we don't have the credit to wage another war, * we don't have the allies to move with us, * we would create more enemies by acting precipitously or militarily than by not doing anything, * we would endanger half a million Americans in the area, and * we could not assure success. These are objective conditions brought about by US foreign policy over decades, by primarily over the 8 years of the previous administration.
