    A good negotiation is one in which both parties leave slightly disappointed.

    The people who get caught in the middle of a war are always the biggest losers.

    I guess the loan elderly guy on campus mumbling "No war in Syria" all day is the biggest winner. Got what he wanted.

    The Syrian people are the biggest loser, especially the 100,000 dead and their loved ones left to mourn their loss of life. Those who now suffer disabilities. There are other losers too but not what I would call the biggest. I don't think there are any winners.

    I totally agree.
    When the Syrian civil/religious war comes to an end there will be no winners.

    They'll long for the days of being bombed, gassed and otherwise slaughtered. They'll remember with fondness the roar of the rifles taking dozens at a time. They'll languish in fledgling democracy, human rights and development projects. And they'll say, "ah, children, we lived in the good ole days!"

    the old days are always good, no matter how bad they were.


    But regarding syria....not sure who really won here - do we really know who used gas on the people?
    Those guys probably won, because they used gas and got away with it....I suppose in a way the people are winning, if the current government gives up it's gas weapons.

    I really didn't like the idea of the US supporting the opposition, since so far as I understand, the opposition is....AQ.

    Then again, I suppose it could be a nice branch of AQ....possibly...kinda weird though.

    30-75% of the rebels are moderates.
