Diplomatic force?

Diplomatic force?

Be careful what you wish for – that seems to be the new ethos of Western diplomacy which, for decades, ostensibly tried to make the world a better place. How long will the West's newfound aversion to risk last, and will it prove beneficial in the drive to find a political solution to the Syrian quagmire?
