Britain, France and the U.S. plan to make their strongest effort yet to push through a draft resolution calling for Syrian President Bashir Assads resignation. At least 5,400 people have been killed in the countrys 10-month long crackdown on protestors.

I mean, would you want to talk to her?
Why don’t they send in Nancy Pelosi in to negotiate? After all, she had a very close relationship with Assad in Syria. Or was that only to embarrass the Republican president?
Contrary to the good press that Hillary Clinton gets, she is ineffective and little respected as Secretary of State.
HAHA, I love it.
