How is that “serious and frank discussion” working out, Kofi?

In a classic case of it’s easy to pick on the vulnerable bad guys, the Obama-Annan school of foreign policy has run into the reality that their words mean little and their threats mean even less.  Syria is a train wreck but Assad’s got friends who’ll back him up and his enemies are blowhards.  Is Syria really different from Libya?  Probably so.  But the real difference is that Gaddafi didn’t have any friends left.

I’m not saying we should intervene in Syria.  But a “big stick”?  I don’t think so.
