The Iraq Crisis and Its Impact on the Future of EU-US Relations: An American View. 'The key debates between US policymakers are not those of "hawks" versus "doves" as was the case during the Cold war, as depicted by the international media, but a debate between "vultures" and "owls." It is my view that the "vultures" (who stressed the need for preclusive intervention) have had their day for the moment, but the "owls" (who stress diplomacy backed by force) will now have theirs.' So says Hall Gardner.
