At A Loss For Words

Wanting above all else to be on the winning side, the Obama administration is trying to decide who to back, if anyone, in the Syrian civil war. I spoke to a Washington insider familiar with the White House discussions, and he said he was at a loss for words.


I fear I’m at a loss for words

Who shall I back, the Turks or Kurds

The Chechens now are not nice guys

And Assad should have stuck to eyes

Egyptians want to blast the Sphinx

It’s dangerous for one who thinks

That finding partners in this fight

Will turn out easy, turn out right

But Obie’s running things right now

And searching for to find out how

To smile and use the press to spin

That we have helped the last man win

Which makes us friends both wise and kind

And all from leading from behind
