“how many people will die before there is a successful political transition.”
Transition to what? A Wahabbist moslem brotherhood nation like Egypt, that actually crucifies Christians, and makes Sharia official? I for one hope the rebels (Obamas friends) do not succeed.
And where did you hear that Assad had chemical bombs filled? Did that NBC news story quote a US Government official as saying that? An Official of a government that cannot wait for us to be involved in that civil war? That Offical said it? Why on earth would you trust them when they lie to us, almost constantly, and about everything.
That gas shell story is pure propaganda.
“The Syrian military is prepared to use chemical weapons against its own people and is awaiting final orders from President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday.......
As recently as Tuesday, officials had said there was as yet no evidence that the process of mixing the “precursor” chemicals had begun. But Wednesday, they said their worst fears had been confirmed: The nerve agents were locked and loaded inside the bombs.....”
I agree,Putin has to be Planning,the only leverage we had against Russian overt action In Syria is playing the Weapons of Mass destruction game against Syria. Will the World Community defend Assad and their Russian Backers Use of these weapons? What will Putin do Now is the Question. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/06/world/africa/weapons-sent-to-libyan-rebels-with-us-approval-fell-into-islamist-hands.html?hp&pagewanted=all&_r=0
