Daniel W. Drezner Needs to Watch "Apocalypse Now"

He is puzzled:

danieldrezner.com :: Daniel W. Drezner :: So what's our Iran policy right now?: I blogged in the spring about my puzzlement and confusion regarding U.S. foreign policy towards Iran. "On the one hand, it was clear that certain elements of the Bush administration were not big fans of either direct or indirect dialogue. On the other hand: [E]ven if this skepticism (towards negotiations and incentives) is warranted, exactly what is the hawkish set of policy options on Iran? Is there any coercive policy instrument that is a) publicly viable; and b) would actually compel Iran into compliance without negotiations?" I'm even more puzzled today.

OK. Everybody now, in chorus:

"They told me that you had gone totally insane, and that your methods were unsound."

"Are my methods unsound?"

"I don't see any method at all, sir."

Impeach George W. Bush. Impeach him now.
