My Two Cents
For the record, I have no problem with the Russians taking the lead on the whole Syria situation. All these people who worry that the United States is ceding its leadership or damaging its international prestige should relax: They're right! And this is truly not a bad thing. Sure it gives Vladimir "Pecs" Putin the opportunity to tweak the US in the pages of The New York Times--but as we all know, Times readers are all latent Communists anyway. More importantly, though, this could avert war and give American leaders the opportunity to refocus on domestic needs. Like that'll happen. But a guy can dream.
