Lavrov and Kerry: Game, Set, Match

Another input to the one picture/thousand words category: a snapshot that is elemental to the state of the current American foreign policy.

Does one really need a caption? Sergei Lavrov is the picture of confidence, clearly in charge as the body language portrays, right hand palm down clenching Kerry's, caught in a moment of bewilderment.

Admittedly, the camera catches an instant that doesn't necessarily portray the truth of the moment, and it may have been Richard Nixon who quipped, "The press always takes two photos in case the first one looked good."

But really, doesn't this just say it all?

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
