Thoughts about Syria

After the Chinese and Russian veto, it seems to me that our U.S. State Department lacks the necessary touch or willingness to engage these two countries in ways that can be productive. Diplomatic engagement doesn't have to be loud and visible.

It could (and probably should) happen behind the scenes, be somewhat “engineered” to include face-saving options for those rogue countries, but I don't see why we couldn't get to a more holistic approach to serious diplomacy...
