    Here is my surprised look...:neutral:
    The White House made a statement yesterday that it is time for "the world to admit defeat".
    Get ready for it....you better be sitting down....oh my God...Syria isn't paying attention to U.N. "plans for peace".
    I am so shocked. The nerve of Syria not to pay attention to the U.N.
    Unbelievable.

    Syria, like Iran, doesn't give a rats ass what the UN or the US has to say about anything.

    Personally I could care what happens in Syria. Its an Arab League problem and if they want to go to war with Syria over their human rights violations then let em.

    Damn straight. I would join a riot if we sent troops into Syria.
    A lot more innocent people are dying in South/Central America than in Syria.

    I don't blame them, the UN is a bunch of pussies and empty suits, of course the Syrians weren't going to listen to those lame UN cease fires and peace plans, Saddam didn't listen to them in the 90's either.

    Consistent with this failure.....

    "Senior U.S. officials concede that a deal is unlikely this year with Moscow over a disputed American missile defense plan, but they insist that the talks are far from stalled and that plans to begin erecting a shield in Russia's back yard will continue unabated."

    Perhaps Obama will take some time out from the 'I-killed-Osama' tour....

    And make no mistake about it...Afghanistan is by the very definition of the word - a defeat. We lost. Killing some of their leaders and forcing them into hiding is not winning. 6 months to a year after we leave - Afghanistan will be right back where they were the day before we arrived. Sure the Taliban or whatever they will call themselves are certainly set back, they are weakened, but the same desire is still there. It is a matter of time before they are back to their former selves.
    It was a colossal waste of human life and resources...and Obama is fighting the war as stupidly as Bush did.

    Actually the Taliban are stronger now than before we went there, because of our invasion they gained a new pool of people to recruit from who joined the madrassas in Pakistan and Afghanistan, they got to expand to new countries they now have liason offices in Turkey and Qatar for our "peace talks", and they also got alot more money, training and experience from going to war with us, not to mention alot of help from Militants who crossed into Afghanistan from other countries to fight us.
