Hopefully Putin doesn't whip out incontrovertible proof the chemical gas attack was linked to Al Qaeda, Qatar... and the US of course.

LOL. Bless those pesky Russians. They just can’t wait to push that good old Veto Button. OTOH, and this is a rare event, good for them.

He’s going to enjoin Obama from action, forcing a US Veto. Samantha is running around in circles screaming “What do I do? what do I do? Where’s Valerie!!!”

Russia just wants to get it on record that Obama attacked Syria without UN support. Expecting England and France to join Russia and China against Obama.

Not to fear, as we speak Obama is gathering his formidable national security team to counter whatever Putin has up his sleeve.

How can we go wrong with advisers such as Susan Rice, V.Jarret, JF Kerry, Clapper and Hagel on the case?

Obama calls Putin a schoolboy. Putin calls Obama a monkey and then blocks him at the UN. Obama really has no clue about how diplomacy works in the real world.

It seems so very odd to be rooting for the Russian over a US President...

I don’t believe Syria would be stupid enough to use chemical weapons. I believe the muslim brotherhood IS.

There was no strategic gain for Assad. There was plenty for the MB to fake it.

The Persians are devotees of chess.

Now suppose Iran has a mole in the rebels that knows how to gas the peasants and make it look like the government troops did it.

We zap Syria. That gives Syria the urge to strike Israel, which of course leads to retaliation from Israel.

Which brings Iran into it.

Which requires the US to live up to its promise to Israel.

And suppose that what is behind all of this is that Iran has a bomb, ether of their own making or acquired from N. Korea.

Crazy?

Bengazi
IRS
NSA
Gulf of Tonkin

All crazy. None of that could have happened.

We are dealing with some really dangerous people, some on our side and many on the other side.

Exactly correct on all points. I’m actually rooting for Putin to b*tch slap Obama on this because I DO think he knows it was as one UN rep said the “paramilitaries” who used the weapons.

I hope it does die. I don’t trust obamster to prosecute any military action. Those are our ships and they cost a lot to build and operate. Some of them have thousands of personnel on board. One of these days somebody will get off a lucky shot or acquire state of art tech to take one out. We get closer to that with each intervention. We need a good -good reason to go in there and we don’t have it. IMHO

The point of all this is to scare the hell out of all the nations so they have to go crawling to the UN.

The UN comes up with a master peace plan. But in order for that to work.. the United States will have to sign on to certain things giving away our sovereignty..

Cold war hawk that I was and anti-communist that I am, I sadly have to agree with you. Putin is actually doing America a favor by showing what an absolute piece of subhuman pig dung the Mahdi is.

That would likely trigger some numerous intense fireballs from whomever they hit with it. Iran would cease to exist, or at least its leaders would.

I can’t help but think this equates to Putin pulling Obama into an empty classroom, locking the door, and giving him some major wall-to-wall counseling over how much he has made a total effed-up mess of ... well.. everything.

“I don’t believe Syria would be stupid enough to use chemical weapons. I believe the muslim brotherhood IS.”

Not saying Syria used them, but assuming they did for a minute, someone conducted several smaller attacks leading up to the larger attack, and Obama did nothing. It’s possible presidential weakness lead them to believe they could get away with using chemical weapons - a miscalculation and diplomatic failure for Obama.

The strategic gain for Assad is that he could quickly eliminate an enemy stronghold responsible for launching attacks against his government. Securing your lines of supply and your rear areas is a strategic goal.

Just some thoughts.

Where’d they get it? Where’d they get the agents?

I have to believe there are markers added to this stuff that allows you to trace it, preventing EXACTLY the kind of false flag stuff that is going on now.

Were I designing this sort of weaponry, every batch would be chemically coded so that I could tell almost instantly, perhaps with some sort of quick spectral analysis, EXACTLY what happened to the batch after it left the building.

IBM can write its logo in atoms. Another way of coding this stuff that’s even more effective is by using a nanodevice that burps a low power signal when triggered by a certain wavelength of light.

You get close enough to enough of the agent you can get it to burp out enough of the signal for it to be detected once you get within X feet of it.

Now, you get a serious breach of national secrets from any one of our agencies, and these markers could work against you if you can string enough of the material out to create a falsified chain of custody, as it were, that would be as convincing as the satellite photos we hit the Russians with at the UN in 1962.

That Putin would allow Assad to use the agent AND manage to have the West blamed on it would be an expectation I’d have of a guy with Putin’s experience.

Explains why nations that understand the obvious ramifications of letting anyone, for any reason, deploy such weapons with impunity would suddenly decide that any answer to such use is now beyond consideration.

I predict Obama goes into Lame Duck Clinton mode, as Clinton did in the final two years of his admin, in the very near future. Jarrett may limit his scope to domestic stuff, but Putin’s agenda may obviate all that.

Oh, and were I Iran, I’d figure out a way to hit us hard enough to destabilize us internally. As it is, we keep having the luxury of fighting all this out on somebody else’s soil, while Americans literally remain fat, dumb, and reasonably happy.

I’m pretty sure they now have the means to do it somehow, and that Jarret’s involvement with the Admin guarantees that Iran is going to be the PERFECT, and protected proxy for any action against the US.

Imagine JFK finding out it was Ireland that launched a nuke against the US. Talk about a moment of hesitation.

You’ve got an admin that for the last six years has positioned itself against the interests of the Saudis (and the Israelis), which is to say for the interests of the Russians, only to have the Russians play him at the last minute by ensuring Iran succeeds not just in destroying Israel, but also, potentially, the US.

As we speak, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and ISRAEL have formed the ‘Axis of Reason’ in order to prop up Egypt and REVERSE OUT a coup staged by the US against Saudi interests.

Let’s not forget that the objective of the Soviets in the Afghanistan adventure was Saudi Arabia, not Afghanistan, prior to their collapse.

Between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and now fracking, the Saudis have a great deal to worry about, and no friends left outside Western Europe, which is to say some pretty weak friends.

Here’s what will happen. Putin will present a “peaceful” compromise, his puppets will go along, Assad will truck his chem WMD to Hezbollah and blue helmets will guard the whole operation under their noses. Regimes/Baathists stay in power, euros think they actually did something, iran’s power increases, Obama looks like Bush and foolish. Satan smiles. Have a nice day.
