Your president used the word "cessation" in his press conference today and it was so obvious that he had no idea what "a cessation of violence" (a phrase he used three times today in about four minutes) actually meant. Not just that he didn't completely understand what was entailed in "a cessation of violence", but he actually just didn't know what "cessation" meant.
It was so sad. I actually felt bad -- really, really bad, in fact -- for him. Nothing is worse than being made to recite a speech that you don't understand in front of the entire world.
