Headlines from the Forum

A bit quiet this time, as we passed through the holiday season - those of us not in prison for defaming the ruling coalition, that is - but the forum continues to inform and entertain. Here are the highlights from the past two weeks:

  1. [Haiti] Basically a lawless free-for-all
  2. [Venezuela] Chavez is dead. No he's not.
  3. [Russia] Putin has not had a great year.
  4. [Syria] Targetting civilians 101

And the comment of the period goes to netizen Max the Incinerator in article [Syria] Moderates sidelined as battle rages:

We've seen the same thing in the American Congress and probably for the same reasons: the moderates, seeking consensus and pragmatism, drop out in frustration. The hardnosed radical nutjobs hang on tight to their ridiculous ideologies and scream and threaten until they get their way.

That's a bad omen for the looming "fiscal cliff" then, I'm sure (oh wait, does that comment count as defamation?)
