If you won’t play my way..

In today’s NY Times Patrick Tyler argues that Bush and advisors want to avoid an open break with the Security Council, etc:

But the concept of open-ended inspections is unacceptable to Mr. Bush and could well lead the United States soon to take the step that the president and his advisers � indeed most Americans � would certainly like to avoid: an open break with the Security Council and the formation of a “coalition of the willing” that would divide not only the United Nations, but also Europe and Asia.

Their behavior, though, strikes me as that of folks who will only play if you are in complete sycophantic agreement with them. And, if not, will take their toys and go play by themselves.
