What the Bush administration considers irrelevant is any organization or country that doesn’t have a meaningful military. Their military - and it is the Bush administration’s military, not ours – has the power to back up ultimatums. Their logic seems to be, if you don’t have a meaningful military you’re not worth dealing with; if you do have a meaningful military, you will be dealt with – one way or another. What will keep the world in a death grip is the logic that mega force should be allowed to move policy and shift ownership.
