"Bringing Peace" Declared by DOS

Just as 2015 was coming to a close, the Baghdad Bobs of the Department of State (DOS) counted "bringing peace" to Syria as a 2015 win.

I'm not sure what Syria the diplomats are discussing, but Planet Earth's version of Syria is undergoing a bloodbath that doesn't seem on the verge of ending anytime soon.

Nor is the so-called impending Peace in Syria the only self-proclaimed accomplishment.  The DipNote's Year in Review: Pivotal Foreign Policy Moments of 2015, would make one think the DOS is solely responsible for "...peace on earth and goodwill towards man."

(By the way, I find the title of DOS's blog "DipNote" to be rather appropriate, but probably not in the manner the webmasters intended it to be).

Not surprisingly, the DOS is finding itself defending its far-fetched, bringing-peace-to-Syria claim, which is about as far-fetched as our Dear Leader's claim that the "JV team" has been contained.
