Breaking: Putin's Move Against Kerry

In response to Kerry giving Syrian president Assad a one week deadline to handover his chemical weapons, Moscow has responded.

If Syria agrees, this puts the US in a box and will make the US look like thugs, if they attack.

Prediction: Kerry-Obama will not be satisfied with any Russia-Syrian promises to place chemical weapons under international control.

Syria 'welcomes' Russia's weapons proposal
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem says Damascus welcomes a Russian proposal calling for Syria to surrender its chemical arsenals in order to avert a U.S. military strike


Via Yahoo:
The State Department was forced to clarify the remarks [made by Kerry about giving Syria a week], calling them "rhetorical" and making clear its desire to strike could be tempered by a Syrian offer. Kerry's point, according to spokeswoman Jen Psaki, "was that this brutal dictator with a history of playing fast and loose with the facts cannot be trusted to turn over chemical weapons."


  1. Did Kerry discuss chemical weapons when he and his wife dined with Assad?

  2. "...a history of playing fast and loose with the facts."

    Psychological projection?

  3. Who is more brutal? Syria or US?

  4. State Dept clarification: Kerry did not say what you heard. He said the exact opposite of what you heard.

  5. Putin doesn't need a deal that the US will accept. He just needs to buy enough time and the US admin's position will fall apart on its own at home and abroad. They needed quick military action to make this work and every day weakens them dramatically.
