12. This is quite the cheer.
Russia being involved, color me shocked, of course they are, they have an ax to grind. Thats like saying twenty years after Vietnam we wouldn't have jumped at the chance to get revenge by lending support.

As for the coalition, it seems that just like Iraq, they are getting tired of having to be the unending enabler of our war effort.

"The nations of the world have been dealing with terrorism much longer than the U.S. We are relative newcomers to this issue." Kinda of a non-issue since our nations have different back grounds. And we are not new to terrorism, we just got a little of what we have been dishing out. That's what happens on a long enough time line.
