Thinking Outside the Iran Box: “That is the essence of containing what Charles de Gaulle called la force du faible , or the strength of the weak: the willingness of people to give up the relatively little they have in suicide bombings or ‘irrational’ nuclear saber rattling. They have no other way to respond to the unchallengeable military might that the United States and Israel have established in the region. This in turn creates the need for asymmetrical statecraft by the strong.”
