When is the Right Time to Talk?

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's visit to Syria seems to have created quite a controversy in the US. The administration is against the visit with the State Department spokesman saying, 'In our view, this is not the right time to have these sort of high-profile visitors to Syria.' I wonder when they think it would be the right time to talk.

At an early age we are taught to do things in a certain logical order to prevent or solve problems or to make our lives less complicated and to accomplish things with our best performance. Some simple examples: we are taught to take precautions before a storm or before a fire, not afterwards. We practice running before the race, not afterwards. We are urged to talk before a divorce, not afterwards. And so it seems only logical to talk with those we disagree with before these disagreements or misunderstandings bring us to a violent confrontation, not afterwards.

Nancy Pelosi, this is the right time to talk with the Syrians! And perhaps after this visit you should go to Iran! The US hasn't had diplomatic relations with them since 1980 so is relegated to shouting at them rather than talking to them when they disagree with what they are doing. Doesn't that remind you of children in kindergarten?...........z

reinforced behaviour when not used for a long time it is practicly forgot so don't blame them, or the people.
they just got used to doing things this way, and with basicly no checks as of late there is no one that is doing anything about it.
then again whats the point of talking when all you are going to blabber are played-out demeanoring stereotypes :D
oh i forgot thats what they let the UN do, TALK ......

I guess the visit is only to put more pressure on syria, but anyway the syrian regime is worse than saddams one..They are prisoning more jordanians than israel, the torture is like hello for them, they are not giving jordan its water rights!!
In all I don't like the syrian regime at all, they are just bullies..
