Firstly, the difference between warriors and diplomats is primarily sphere of operations (physical vs. social)rather than any actual difference in methodology, and metaphorical conflicts are almost universally within the social sphere already.
Technically, most real-life conflicts do involve both—we haven't been very big on "Kill them all and salt the earth" wars for a while. You pummel 'em, then send in the diplomats to convince them they don't need another pummeling.
Not to say that this is the best strategy, or that it applies to metaphors.
I don't care how anybody feels about the dentist/big game hunter. Posting threats on the door of his business AND home is sickening.

Note that the dentist did not go to Zimbabwe specifically to kill Cecil. He went to hunt a lion. The group he hired lured Cecil to him. Also this same week three endangered elephants were killed in Nairobi
