When the shooting starts would you rather be armed or legal? – Cormac McCarthy, “The Road”
In a move that I can only describe as the equivalent of Putin changing Obama’s political diapers for him, the Russian President has persuaded Syria to place its chemical weapons stockpile under international control: LINK
This takes away any stated motive for Obama and John Kerry to press their dwindling cast of supporters into firing away at Syria. Furthermore, it removes the possibility of the U.S. staging another “false flag” chemical weapons show, which is what most rational-minded observers have concluded occurred in Syria.
To be quite frank, I have to say that in the latest footage I’ve seen of John Kerry making his case for war in Syria, he has a frightening “rabid dog” look in his eyes – he’s literally foaming at the mouth to attack Syria and get rid of the Assad Government. I have to conclude that Obama and Kerry are acting in a politically insane manner here and I stand by my earlier conclusions that the underlying motive for this attempted attack on Syria by the Obama Government is seeded in money – oil-based blood money.
Obama sees potential ‘breakthrough’ in Russia’s Syria proposal
Russia and Syria embraced Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s suggestion Monday that the Syrian government could avert a U.S. attack by placing its chemical weapons under international control, upending the Obama administration’s efforts to sharpen its case for military action.
U.S. officials said Kerry’s comment, made in response to a question at a news conference in London, was not intended to be a diplomatic opening. But Kerry’s Russian and Syrian counterparts quickly followed up, and the idea drew immediate interest internationally and from top Democrats in Washington.
By the end of the day, President Obama conceded that the idea of monitoring and ultimately destroying Syria’s arsenal “could potentially be a significant breakthrough.” The Senate postponed a vote scheduled for Wednesday on whether to back a proposed punitive strike.
“I think you have to take it with a grain of salt, initially,” Obama said in an interview with NBC that was among several he gave Monday in pursuit of public backing for a military strike in response to an alleged Aug. 21 gas attack on Syrian civilians.
