    Well played, my friend.
    I wonder if this place has those 99 cent gamblers-special breakfasts?
    Maybe that drunk guy will loan me $5 to get back in the game.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Actually we should be very vocal about the problem and then say, so "EU...HANDLE IT!" "China...HANDLE IT!" "Russia...HANDLE IT!" "United Nations...well...no..thats just funny right there...never mind...you guys go sit back down."

    "“No single speech,” Obama noted in his Cairo address, “can eradicate years of mistrust.” The ensuing four years would show just how deep that mistrust runs, and just how steep a climb the U.S. faces in turning around its image in Egypt and many other parts of the Muslim world."

    Years of mistrust we sewed in the middle east by appointing dictators for 40 yrs. I don't blame them.

    As always when people suggest military intervention in the internal affairs of another nation I respond with....NO! No, no, no, no, a thousand times NO!!!

    We are not the World's Policeman, nor should we try to be.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    They hate us there and we buy their friendship....No way should we intervene there.

    And, naturally, Assad, having allowed inspectors in, immediately started a chemical attack to help their work! Oh why don't we have the simple faith of all the other mugs? The one certain thing is that any intervention by 'the West' (the US and its colonies) is guaranteed to make any situation immeasurably worse.

    Why not just do what we did with Libya? That's about the extent I would wish to get involved in this mess.
