Sorry about not having the talk page

This was one of those cleanup issues.

Now, though, a question is proper workgroup assignment. See grand strategy; diplomacy is one of the non-military means of enforcing national politics and polls. Grand strategy does, however, grow from military doctrine and thus also is under the Military workgroup.

There certainly will be cases, such as coexisting diplomatic and military missions in a country, where the Military workgroup is absolutely applicable. Should that apply to a diplomatic effort that is attempting to avoid violence, and where violence is a potential outcome? I don't have a simple answer. Howard C.
