Google+. The new layout is fine. Quite polished, nice ideas, etc. They just made one giant mistake which they copied from the mobile version: You can't search your own posts anymore.

I regularly used this to re-discover posts I had done in the past. With the new interface, I have to treat G+ as a write-only medium and my posts not discoverable to me anymore.

That's a huge step backwards.

War. After it became clear that the Iraq war had failed in stabilizing the region, we made fun of all the conservatives who fell over each other trying to explain how that's because we did not invade enough, and how it surely would have worked if we had just tried to invade a bit more.

I'm currently somewhat amused reading my leftist friends falling over each other trying to explain how Syria is in the shape it is because we did not do nothing enough, and how it surely would have worked if we had just done nothing a bit more.
