This is odd. Gedmin's voice has changed. From an advocate/enthusiast of German/American relations this sounds sad and beaten. It sounds as though he has given up.


The "smug anti-war crowd" will remain just that. This won't change with Iran, either. Unfortunately, Mr. Ahmadinedschad knows this and also senses that the other "voices" (perhaps like Mr. Gedmin's, as Pamela noted) have changed, weakened. He's pushing it as far as he can and has already gotten away with more than he had hoped for, I imagine. Would a military intervention be fine with him now, too? Does this guy see all of this as a win/win situation - for now?
