There does, though, seem to be a little Brie and possibly a little Turkish Delight with the barest selection of Mezze, and there just might be a bottle of Molson Beer on ice.

But there's definitely not any Borscht, or Dim Sum, or Chelo Kabab on the menu.

And there doesn't seem to be anything from south of the border, all the way down to Tierra del Fuego, on the menu either.

I haven't noticed any Knödel, or Kielbasa, or Tapas, or Bruschetta either. Have you?

Not a very rich menu it seems.

I'd like to make it clear that I am not against President Obama. I think that he has, in a very difficult political atmosphere, generally made good decisions in his policies regarding the very complex situation which exists in and around Syria, but there have been mistakes.

One of the reasons for these mistakes may be that his administration seems to suffer from occasional periods of rebel-blindness, letting animosity towards Assad eclipse the knowledge of just who and what the majority of the Syrian rebel groups are and of what they have done and are now doing.
