RUSSIA HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT THAT THEY AGREE THAT THERE MIGHT HAVE TO, AT SOME TIME IMPOSE SANCTIONS AGAINST IRAN ,BUT THIS MIGHT NOT BE THAT TIME!So inconclusion it looks like the only reward that Obama has received from all his servitude at the UN conference has been his nobel peace prize.

The Taliban had nothing to do with that. al Qaeda should have been the only target. Being mired down in a war by an 2nd enemy that we brought in was not wise. We even had a historical record showing what happened when Russia attempted a similar thing.

The pakastanis see us as hypocrits for begging them to kill the tallies well not doing anything ourselves. We are in aphganistan for geopolitics. If we wern’t we could have easilily finsihed the taliban in a couple months.
