A compelling article on the Iraq conflict, more precicely the conflict leaders deal with when the status quo is no longer acceptable and must be changed as well as challenging the current model of liberalized nation state structures. I think this quote accuratly portrays the delema:

"But what happens when you a playing chess with someone who refuses to accept the rules of the game? How do you respond if your opponent begins to jump his knight in all sorts of bizarre zigzag patterns, so that you cannot predict where he will land or what piece he will seize? In a game of chess the answer is obvious: You stop playing with the madman and go your separate way. But this, unfortunately, is not an option in dealing with genuine conflicts arising in the real world."
