: And if all this had no effect? If he gave you an ultimatum?

Then I'd have to see what I can do, in any way that doesn't make things worse. If the police are negotiating with hostage takers, they can't just open fire indescriminately, they'd be mauled by TPTB for doing so.

: He is a dictator you know, it's worth a war just to get rid of him.

So we should go to war against Libya, Jordan, Syria, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc. and all teh dictators in teh world- or should we just stop propping them, up?

: : No War but the class war.
: Dogma, people die.

And people will die if we go to war, specifically, it doesn't matter why you or I think we are going to war, TPTB will always fight a war on their terms, with their aims,a nd for their interests alone, Hence why the bombing concentrated on trying to force capitulation, rather than anything effective on the ground. Supporting teh Wars of our masters only furthers their interests, and spreads more war, in the long run.
